Polygiene and 2XU collaborate on odor-free compression apparel for elite athletes and workout enthusiasts
Polygiene and the global sports brand 2XU (“Two Times You”) have signed an agreement to collaborate on treating compression clothing for the 2XU 2017 Collections with Polygiene Odor Control Technology. Clothing made of compression fabrics includes compression tights, t-shirts, shorts, socks and sleeves.
“The introduction of Polygiene Odor Control Technology into our compression fabrics will help our professional athletes and workout enthusiasts – and 2XU – stand apart from the competition,” says Shaun Patterson, Chief Marketing Officer at 2XU.
All teams in the National Basketball Association (NBA) purchase and use compression clothing from 2XU to boost their performance and recovery. 2XU’s graduated compression garments made of PWX fabric technology promote increased blood flow, increased endurance, less muscle vibration, faster muscle recovery and reduced risk of injury.
Polygiene Odor Control Technology makes the garment stay fresh longer, and therefore it does not need to be washed as often. It also significantly increases the garment’s lifetime and ensures its compression effects last longer.
“We look forward to continue to work with the world leader in fitness and workout compression apparel,” says Christian von Uthmann, CEO of Polygiene. “We share 2XU’s mission to create high-tech fabrics and applications that enable the user to increase their performance through the use of compression garments that last.”
2XU is known worldwide for its high quality and is used by the Swedish athletes like elite runner Mustafa “Musse” Mohamed as well as triathletes such as Annie Thorén and Gabriel Sandör. The 2XU Collection treated with Polygiene will be available to consumers in Sweden during the second half of 2017.
