Very thin, lightweight base layer for competition and high-intensity training.
Very thin, lightweight base layer for competition and high-intensity training. It is made with sustainability and temperature control as the most important characteristics. A balanced blend of Tencel, recycled polyester, and fine merino wool has been used, with a material weight of 90 g/m2. This combination of materials ensures optimum insulation, good moisture wicking, and fast drying. Just like wool, Tencel adapts to varying body temperature and has an incredibly soft surface. Flat seams and very fine yarn quality make the sweater feel soft and comfortable against the skin during exercise, without unpleasant chafing.
Compete Tech has Tencel Lyocell added, which is a fiber extracted from cellulose pulp from the sustainable eucalyptus tree. This tree grows fast and is planted on FSC-certified tree farms without genetic modification or artificial irrigation. The chemicals used to produce the fiber are administered in a closed system. This means that the solvent is recycled, which reduces hazardous waste.
The fiber is as strong as polyester and as soft as silk. Its breathability, moisture wicking, and antibacterial properties make it ideal for exercising at both high and low intensity.
