Luna Rossa is a legend in Italian sport. UYN is proud to be supporting the elite sailing team with our highly technical base layer and socks, in an edition created specially for these champions.
The Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team will be Challenger of Record at the 36th America’s Cup taking place in the waters surrounding Auckland, New Zealand, in 2021. As the challenge for the world’s oldest trophy nears, the athletes will have the chance to put the high quality of UYN to the test, wearing products designed for the extreme conditions in regattas.
HIGH-TECH SOCKS FOR HUGE PERFORMANCE
The UYN socks have been designed with a double section of tight-fitting asymmetrical fabric. Breathability is built-in. This allows for targeted compression precisely where it’s needed, which creates a better flow of oxygen to the muscles and reduces the onset of fatigue. The Cool Air Flow structure composed of 3D micro-channels promotes air circulation to keep the feet dry at all times, even during maximum physical output. Huge performance is built from the bottom up: comfort in the feet is vital to success.
MOTYON - TEMPERATURE REGULATING BASE LAYER
Moisture from the sea and the scorching sun are another two adversaries a sailor has to face during a regatta. The exclusive long-sleeve version of the Moyton base layer offers exceptional protection while also controlling body temperature. Thanks to the special 3D structures, it creates a flow of air against the skin. The fabric cools and offers thermal protection, while also rapidly wicking away sweat. Moreover, the Natex bio-fibre, made from castor oil, guarantees our garments dry 50% faster than nylon garments. The result? Constant comfort in all weather conditions. The special Hypermotion build - which eliminates all seams around the shoulders - promotes freedom of movement, a feature vital for the manoeuvres made onboard.
Once again, at UYN we’re putting our technology at the service of the highest levels of sport. With a sole objective: to guarantee winning performances.
