The allure of the most stunning seas, the struggle to tame wind and water, your eye on the prize: yacht sailing is all this and more. UYN® – Unleash Your Nature is ready to descend upon the regatta universe, bringing our ultra-performance sportwear with us. We’re doing this alongside successful US team Quantum Racing, world champions in the TP52class and reigning champs of the 52 Super Series.
UYN SUPPORTS CHAMPIONS
After a successful winter season (eight of the world’s best national ski teams chose UYN, including Italy’s Dominik Paris and Sofia Goggia, Austria’s Marcel Hirscher, France’s Alexis Pinturault), this Italian brand continues to pursue its philosophy: to support the best athletes in every sport and put maximum performance within their grasp. That’s why we have chosen to make this grand debut in the world of sailing. The 52 Super Series is considered the Formula 1 of sailing and Quantum Racing has dominated this prestigious class on a grand total of four occasions (2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018). Owned by the legendary Doug DeVos, the team unites famous champions and is the international scene’s leading light. Professionalism and the drive they have for success are values they share with UYN.
THE IDEAL BASE LAYERS FOR TAKING ON THE SEAS
UYN is providing Quantum Racing with the most innovative technical base layers, to complement a sport that demands top-class technology and where details make all the difference. For regattas and training, we’ll provide the team members with base layers from our EVOLUTYON and MOTYON ranges, as well as our high-tech RUN FIT socks.
UYN base layers are made with Natex, a natural fibre that guarantees our garments are 25% lighter and allows them to dry 50% faster. That boosts comfort in the boat, even in the most challenging conditions. The Hypermotion system favours agility, as it removes the need for seams around the shoulders, giving the wearer total freedom of movement. Evolutyon means extra protection against the damp and the temperature drops typically found at sea, while Coolvent technology works to provides the wearer with exceptional breathability, for maintaining the right body temperature. Motyon, designed specifically to provide excellent ventilation, has ideal functions for when the temperatures are hottest or conditions call for intense effort. Quantum Racing’s top sailors can always count on the UYN garment most suitable for each challenge.
