Zoom on ESF Aquatech® Fabrics
The firm’s timeless weaving technology, combined with PAYEN’s innovative covered yarns, allows the production of the finest bi-stretch wovens for activewear in the world. That’s why ESF tested their Aquatech® fabric collections against the LYCRA® SPORT technology standard.
Result? All LYCRA® SPORT certified fabrics exhibit excellent values for Power (9-10) as well as for Comfort (7-8) with low Energy levels. ESF’s unique bi-stretch fabrics are ideally suited for high-level competitive sports applications where the wearer needs muscle compression, without force and optimal comfort. The athlete can then dedicate its full energy on its performance!
Ultra-lightweight, these first woven fabrics to pass the stringent LYCRA® SPORT PCE™ test exhibit balanced results in both the warp and weft, which makes them competitive to conventional knit fabrics, while being three times lighter!
Four of the collection lines did pass the test under the QUATTRO, FENIX, ESPADON and OXYGEN names.
