Sport, Outdoor… Drycore® !

Great weather is on the horizon !

Puffas and Gore-Tex jackets will be able to stay shelved at home or stashed in packs more often. But that doesn’t mean you can go without technical fabrics engineered for sports, especially high-intensity disciplines. Admit it: are you keen to finish a challenging trail excursion, a long summer hike or a mountain-bike expedition with your tee stuck to your skin after seriously sweaty effort? The answer, we imagine, is a unanimous no.

 

Eider’s teams are constantly striving to design innovative fabrics that deliver comfort and performance from start to finish of your sports activities. Drycore®, a fabric developed by our R&D people, lets us offer you products totally suited to intense exertion. Let’s take a closer look at this label, which will be with you all summer long.

Drycore® : COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE

Drycore® was designed to absorb sweat and spread it over the fabric’s surface, where it dries quickly in contact with air. 

 

 

So: excellent breathability, which shifts moisture away really well, coupled with quick drying. But Drycore® also has other properties that make it particularly suitable for summer sports and outdoor activities. . It’s extremely light, so ideal for all activities where weight matters: trail running, mountaineering, long-distance hikes… And even if weight isn’t a problem, why load up if it’s avoidable?

Drycore® also blocks UV rays with a view to summer use
 

 

* (which doesn’t, however, remove the need for a decent application of sun cream – but that’s your department).

Tsingy shorts, bermudas and pants – also in Drycore® and rugged yet comfortable – hit the spot both on day-long activities as well as back at camp or on a café terrace. And if you want to enjoy the mountains in feminine style, you can jazz up your trail vibe courtesy of the Mauna Loa printed top or tee.
