Polartec®, a Milliken™ & Company brand, launches all-new bio-based Polartec® Power Shield® fabric technology to market, debuting in the Adapt Multi Jacket by renowned cycling brand, Santini.
The launch of the Adapt Multi Jacket ushers in an exciting new era of high-performance, eco-friendly cycling apparel and is a prime example of the innovations that can arise when leaders in fabric technology and apparel join forces. By harnessing Polartec’s latest sustainable fabric innovation, Santini has created outerwear that allows riders to pursue their passion wholeheartedly, regardless of the elements.
Polartec Power Shield is made from a combination of plant-based and non-PFAS materials, and achieves an industry-leading combination of waterproofness, windproofness, long-lasting breathability, high durability, and comfortable stretch. Constructed for a wide range of solutions, Polartec Power Shield is the most capable and versatile waterproof breathable technology in the company’s fabric portfolio to date, and the latest addition to the company’s complete conversion to non-PFAS alternatives across its entire range of fabrics.
“At the center of Polartec Power Shield’s revolutionary functionality is a major advancement in membrane technology. The highly durable monolithic membrane is a barrier specifically engineered to be impermeable to outside weather, while transporting moisture vapor from skin-to-surface via molecular diffusion,” said Ramesh Kesh, Global Business Unit Manager of Polartec and Senior Vice President at Milliken.
Santini’s Adapt Multi Jacket for Men and Women is designed with advanced technical features to meet the performance demands of avid cyclists. Test results for the Power Shield-equipped jacket exceeded an impressive 20,000 mm waterproof and 20,000 g breathable rating, enabling riders to stay dry and comfortable even during intense workouts.
The Adapt Multi Jacket featuring Polartec Power Shield technology is now available for purchase on Santini’s official website and select retailers worldwide. For more information on Polartec Power Shield and to stay up to date on new partner product announcements please visit Polartec.com
