Vapour-X® is our very own high performance fabric made from sustainable resources. We developed the fabric back in 2007 to meet the sustainability requirements of the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon and it now forms the basis of our performance clothing range.
The two key ingredients in Vapour-X® are bamboo charcoal and recycled polyester.
Bamboo CharcoalBamboo is a fast growing and sustainable resource which grows naturally in a managed environment. When the bamboo is cut it is carbonised into charcoal particles and blended with polyester to form the unique Vapour-X performance fibre.
Recycled PolyesterUsed plastic bottles are shattered into tiny particles, washed and then melted together. From this PET recycled fibres are produced, ready to be drawn into a yarn.
The FabricThe bamboo charcoal yarn and recycled polyester yarn and woven together to create a two-layer fabric; an internal bamboo charcoal layer with fine denier for a soft supply feel against the skin, an outer layer made with recycled polyester – a durable fabric which endures the rigors of daily training.Key Attributes.
