EXTREMELY STRONG!

Description:

Cordura fabrics are well known for their durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs. Excellent resistance to fading, abrasion, rot and mildew. Quick drying, and highly water repellent.

We use two kinds of Cordura material, with 500 and 1000 denier. The 1000D versus 500D designation equates to the linear mass of the core yarn used to weave and create the Condura fabric. 1000D does have a greater resistance to tearing than 500D because of the stronger/thicker yarn used, but both materials are extremely strong.

VERY ELASTIC!
Description:

The most significant characteristic of spandex is its stretchability. It can be stretched to a great length and then also recovers its near to original shape. It is lightweight, soft, smooth, supple and more durable and has higher retractive ability than rubber. It gives the best fit and comfort and also prevents bagging and sagging of the garment.

IT'S BREATHING!
Description:

A fabric made from a blend of cotton and artificial fibres, especially of polyester fibres. Poly-cotton blends are strong, durable and tear resistant, thanks to the fact that polyester fibers are far more elastic than cotton alone. Thanks to the cotton component, blends are very abrasion resistant and far more breathable than pure polyester.

Description:

Nylon is a smooth, light weight and high strength lustrous fibre. It has good tenacity and the strength is not lost with age. It has a high strength to weight ratio, and it is one of the lightest textile fibres is at the same time also one of the strongest.
The heat and moisture of the body will not readily pass the fabric construction, which makes the wearer feel very warm. It also has a very good wind-breaking attribution.

WINDPROOFLY COMFORTABLE!

Description:

Neoprene is an elastic and form-fitting material, therefore it is very comfortable. It has extremely low surface friction, this makes it easy to slide and stretch over equipment.
We use the highest quality neoprene from the center of fashion, Italy.

It is more thick than spandex, so it's not as stratchable, but therefor it's more stronger.

IT'S FABULOUS!
Description:

Belga material has almost the same attributes what Polycotton has.
In addition, it has a water repellent layer on top, which makes it glossy looking. The surface of this material is pretty "slippery", which makes it a good choice as a fast speed material.
Because of its structure, this material is considered as a warm material.
