Scott sports racing team, along with Sitip, Rosti, and Roica by Asahi Kasei has launched the first sustainable biking uniform. Rosti worked on style and packaging, Sitip on technical fabrics ‘Be-Hot - Heat Generating fabrics’, while Roica provided its premium stretch ingredient. The uniforms are not just highly performing but also, highly sustainable.

Sitip created the Native fabric entirely made with recycled yarns and featuring the premium high performing Roica EF elastomer. The yarn is certified GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certification (and also provides special dyeability) with Rosti’s design and high care garment manufacturing, according to a press release by Scott.

“We have always created partnerships that lead us to obtain the best possible solutions. And when it comes to high performance, our ally for premium stretch fibre is Roica by Asahi Kasei, the description of a corporate DNA made of innovation and performance,” Silvana Pezzoli, owner of Sitip, and Sergio Alibrandi, executive marketing manager said.

“The role of stretch yarn must go further and offer the consumer smart solutions but also functionality. We were the first to create a family of premium and sustainable yarns, the Roica Eco-Smart family which includes Roica EF. The GRS certified range is developed with 58 per cent of pre-consumer transformed content and it can also offer better dyeability. Also from our family, Roica V550 degrades itself in the environment without releasing dangerous substances. Such features match perfectly to a circular economy approach as proven by the Gold Level Material Health Certificate of the Cradle to Cradle Product Innovation Institute,” Uwe Schmidt, managing director of Asahi Kasei said.
