According to our Product Dogmas each and every one of our products is made to be the only one of its kind in your wardrobe. Here’s why we think, this jersey can be your only summer cycling jersey from now on:
A tightly fitted jersey will make you look like a pro cyclist. But why not feel comfortable on those long rides, too? The Fe226 StrongRide jersey is made from a unique fabric that offers race features and fit while feeling super-comfortable. The 5-thread overlock seams make the seams equally flexible for a comfortable feel.
The jersey (and the matching bib shorts) is anti-bacterial so you will not have to wash it after every ride. That’s better for the environment and your ecological footprint – and will prevent you from buying more pieces than you actually need to train and race in.
The StrongRide jersey offers construction details like:
• Race fit with comfortable feel
• Three spacious back pockets
• A zipped security pocket to keep essential items secure and dry – fits most smartphones on the market
• Reflective logo print on back pockets and chest to keep you visible in the dark
We only produce in European factories that are socially and environmentally responsible. We only use high-quality, locally sourced fabrics, and we always produce in smaller batches. If you wonder, why our prices are rather high compared to some better known brands, please have a look here.
JOIN THE EVOLUTION OF SPORTSWEAR
All Fe226 sportswear items are anti-bacterial and therefore odour-less. This means that you need to wash them less, and hence you can keep them for longer. This is good for you and good for the environment.
You probably know the feeling; after a few months of training in your apparel, they start to smell. Even after you washed them. This problem is over now. Using Fe226’s odour-less garments, you will feel much better both during training (especially if you exercise in company), and after training an commuting, when you hang your garments to dry either at home or at work/school.
Longer lasting textiles
Feeling (smelling) better is not the only advantage of Fe226’s odour-less garments. It also means, that instead of washing your garments after each exercise, you can rinse under water and hang it up to dry, thereby reducing washing to every 3-4 times you use it. And with less washing and less bacterial growth, your garments also last longer, so you can buy less. Good for your wallet and good for the environment.
Reduced environmental impact
In sports apparel, our use of a garment stands for the 50-70% of total carbon emission. Using an odour-less product more than once before washing drastically reduces the environmental impact of the garment. Water and energy are saved, CO2 is reduced and the amount of microplastics can also be significantly reduced. It all starts by washing less. Studies show, that if you use an anti-bacterial garment for just nine months longer, you will reduce water usage by close to 20%, carbon dioxide emissions by more than 15% and waste by 8% compared to a normal sportswear item.
PS.: An additional fun-fact: Skipping one wash load per week, will save you three days in a year – not bad, in these busy times, right?
