Building on last year's partnership, graphene-based product supplier Directa Plus and sportswear brand Colmar have unveiled a second collection of graphene-enhanced sportswear. 

Unveiled at ISPO Munich, the new collection, which comprises three ski jackets, is the second application of Directa's Graphene Plus (G+) nanotechnology in sportswear and sees the company incorporate G+ with different textiles in each jacket based on the requirement of the particular garment.

The Technologic G+ jacket, based on the classic 1990s design, is padded with wadding printed with G+, while the new the Bormio G+ jacket has an outer shell made with a membrane containing G+, and the Guaina Zeno G+ jacket has a G+ lining.

Clothing that incorporates graphene, an innovative nanotech material derived from graphite, is said to significantly improve performance for athletes, professionals and sports enthusiasts.

The smart fabric acts as a filter between the body and the external environment, ensuring an ideal temperature for the wearer. With G+, the warmth produced by the body is dispersed in warm climates and preserved and distributed evenly in cold climates. The fabrics, which are treated with Graphene Plus, and are electrostatic and bacteriostatic, are able to reduce the friction with air and water to enable top sporting performance.

In recognition of these strengths, the Technologic G+ jacket was selected as a Gold Winner in the 'Ski' category at ISPO Munich, an international multi-segment exhibition for sports businesses, which, each year, honours exceptional sporting goods.

"Following the sporting and commercial success of the first Colmar collection enhanced by our Graphene Plus, the launch of this new range of ski jackets validates the strengths of our solutions and our ability to work with our customers to ensure that the incorporation of our graphene-based products enables them to improve and differentiate their end products," says Directa Plus CEO Giulio Cesareo.

"We are delighted to be deepening our relationship with Colmar, who are pioneers in the field of sportswear, and we are thrilled that the Technologic G+ jacket has already been honoured having been selected as a Gold Winner at ISPO Munich: we congratulate Colmar on receiving this industry recognition."

Directa Plus adds its tailor-made solutions have been independently certified as safe for human health and the environment.

The new collection follows the launch of what Directa and Colmar claimed was the world's first graphene-enhanced sportswear in January of last year.
