Swiss company Scott Sports has won an award at the Eurobike trade fair in Germany. The award is for making a cycling outfit out of a textile made by a Swiss company Schoeller. Scott developed the ITD Pro Tec technology in collaboration with Schoeller. Scott Sports makes high end performance products intended for biking, winter sport, moto sport.
The ITD ProTec technology is a highly elastic knit fabric made by Eschler, a Schoeller brand. It has an unique ceramic coating. The knitted carbon yarn, inspired by sailing rope, has outstanding anti-static properties. It ensures a higher tearing resistance as well as an antibacterial effect. This combined with the ceramic printing on the fabric leads to high robustness and durability, even in the event of a crash on asphalt at high speed.
This technology provides a significantly higher abrasion resistance than regular fabrics. The ceramic prints ensure durability and ruggedness, even in the event of high speed falls. Fine ceramic particles, in combination with the hexagon-shaped design, make the high-tech textile exceptionally resistant to abrasion.
The clothing lines with this innovative technology will be available in retail stores in 2015.
