FOCUS FABRICS fall winter 2017

*Condividi

The rh+ philosophy is to custom develop families of fabrics for specific functions in the Powerlogic Lab, our research and development lab, and with support from specialist suppliers

WATERDRY

With windproof and waterproof protection, rh+ WaterDry fabrics are designed to keep the body dry even in heavy rain plus they are exceptionally breathable, lightweight and wear resistant. To best meet the various demands for thermal and weather protection, six versions of Waterdry fabrics are available featuring different technologies and membranes

WD PLATINUM KR HARD FACE

Characteristics: From the experience and tradition of the best wool manifactures and the Powerlogic Lab sports know-how, we selected the best Merino wool for sportwear.
The common theme and name for the fabrics in this range is Keratin, the name of the Alpha protein molecule naturally present in wool fibres.
DRY and BREATHABLE: Keratin fibres are capable of absorbing up to 35% of their own weight in moisture, which they then expel away from the body.
THERMOREGULATION: thanks to the structure of wool fibres, Keratin creates thousands and thousands of miniscule air pockets that ensure warmth by stopping body heat from escaping when it’s cold, and expelling moisture when it’s hot - which stops you from overheating.
RESISTANCE and DURABILITY: the outer layer of this fabric is reinforced with Cordura Rip-Stop, as well as being treated to make it water-repellent to increase both protection and resistance to wear and tear.
The fabric, which includes a laminated layer, guarantees:
• Waterproofing: 20,000 mm - ISO 811 Test for waterproofness/water resistance values
• Breathability: 15.000 g/m2
• Water repellency: 20 machine washes
 

WD PLATINUM KR SOFT FACE

Characteristics: Inside the Keratin fabrics technological range this fabric shows a combination between wool and elastomer.
This lead to a comfortable and innovative fabric

CYCLING AIRDRY LINE

WIND RESISRANCE AND THERMAL PROTECTION

rh+ AirDry™ fabrics respond to the need of protecting the human body from the air generated in cycling at speed, from the cold wind or from the combination of both. They are so designed to function as a barrier and to protect in various weather conditions and usually they are made of strong

but light fabrics and they can be use the all year long, guaranteeing also a moderate thermal protection as well as from light rain. To best meet those tasks, AD fabrics are available in various versions differing for weight and membranes used, and that are classified in regards of their performances and technicity in PlatinumGold and Silver.

AD GOLD

Soft shell 3L fabric, mid-weight and stretchy, with an high degree of air protection and a good ratio between insulation and breathability, it facilitate the moisture management. As all the laminated wind-proof fabrics, it also provides a moderate protection against water, being it light rain or water splashes.

CYCLING THERMALDRY

ThermalDry™ rh+ category materials are different types of padding which are used to further increase the thermal insulation of the garment, rising it up to its maximum.Usually applied on winter jackets, they can be of different base materials and manufacturing technologies and add properties such as moisture management

and thermal function even when they got wet. Available in different versions and classified after their thermal level and technicity, they are divided into Platinum, Gold and Silver levels.

TD PLATINUM POLARTEC® ALPHA

Characteristics: Polartec® Alpha® is the latest evolution of synthetic insulation offering a rare combination of lightweight warmth and true breathability in a “puffy” style garment. Because Polartec® Alpha® insulation is highly durable and more stable than other synthetic insulation products, more open-construction woven face and back fabrics can be selected to create an air permeable package.
This small amount of airflow rapidly draws moisture away from the body and allows Polartec® Alpha® to be worn in a wider range of activities compared to classic “vapor barrier” style insulation.
Technical features
• Provides warmth without the weight and bulk of traditional insulating fabrics.
• Breathable to provide comfort in all activities: does not restrict the movement of moisture vapor
• Dries quickly to minimize heat loss.
• Insulates even when wet
• Versatile; appropriate for a broad range of activities as a mid- or outer-layer
• Wind resistant

TD GOLD 3M THINSULATE™

Characteristics: The unique microfibers that make up Thinsulate™ insulation work by trapping air molecules between you and the outside. The more air a material traps in a given space‚ the better it insulates you from the cold outside air. Because the fibers in Thinsulate™ insulation are finer than the fibers used in most other synthetic or natural insulation‚ they trap more air in less space‚ which naturally makes Thinsulate™ insulation a better insulator.

OUTDRY TECHNOLOGY

OutDry is a patented membrane construction process that creates, together with the GLOVE OUTER SHELL, a one-piece waterproof-breathable barrier.
Advantages: uniformly seals the shell’s inner surface sealing the stitching and any other potential water entry point keeping it on the outer surface of the glove. No extra weight to be carried on by the wearer and the glove dries much faster.

Superior Thermicity, Windproofness and Breathability: the absence of water and humidity between the membrane and the glove’s shell improve insulation efficiency and facilitates moisture management. The wind is blocked on the glove’s outer surface: a larger volume of warm, dry air envelops your hand, maintaining stable hand temperature.
