Adidas Outdoor and cycling apparel brand Megmeister have joined forces to create eco-friendly and high-performance outdoor clothing, including a new seamless base layer.
The partnership unites the two brands who aim to “raise the bar for high performance, sustainable eco-friendly” products, featuring innovative garment designs while reducing the impact of the apparel on our planet.
The new Drynamo Wool Eco Long Sleeve Base Layer is said to not only reduce the amount of waste created during the knitting process, but is also 96% biodegradable at the end of its wearable life.
Using Megmeister’s advanced yarn technologies, the new ISPO Gold Award winning base layer is said to demonstrate that “sustainability doesn’t have to compromise performance”.
The base layer features body-mapped targeted ventilation zones which are designed to “provide climate regulation and breathability in a lightweight seamless knit”.
This collaboration supports both Megmeister’s and Adidas’ sustainability targets, including Adidas’ 2021 commitments of using only 100% recycled polyester in all products by 2024, reducing the brand’s carbon footprint by 30% by 2030, as well as achieving full climate neutrality by 2050.
We are waiting for a price and will update when we have one.
Anna has been hooked on bikes ever since her youthful beginnings at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit. As an avid road and track racer, she reached the heady heights of a ProCyclingStats profile before leaving for university. Having now completed an MA in Multimedia Journalism, she’s hoping to add some (more successful) results. Although her greatest wish is for the broader acceptance of wearing funky cycling socks over the top of leg warmers.
