I/O BIO develops freeride wool line

Feb '09
Now in its third season, I/O Biocompatibles continues to shake up the baselayer world by bringing to market the first loose fit wool line for men and women. For I/O BIO's Fall/Winter 2009-10 line, the new Loose Tight gives riders extra movement with a freeride fit and the warmth, wicking and the antimicrobial performance characteristics of 100% merino wool. Merino wool is the original organic fiber, deriving from a natural, sustainable, renewable resource, is biodegradable and has no toxic VOC's.

The Contact Loose Tight is perfect for riders who choose to wear their apparel on the looser side and dislike the look and feel of a sausage roll. I/O's Heavy User Network prefer the hang-loose fit for air-trapping function and chilled-out comfort around the house. Respected riders like Andy Finch and Xavier Delerue helped develop the gear.

Like the FC Hoody that debuted in the I/O FW 2008-09 line, I/O's Loose Tight incorporates an I/O patented print, another first in the wool industry. The Contact Loose Tight comes in I/O's Plaid pattern available in two distinct colorways for men and women as well as black. The ¾ length assures no hotspots with boot overlap and the fabric is of course 100% fine merino wool. Easy care wash and tumble dry; will be available at retail in August 2009.

The only wool manufacturer with a “Sheep to Shelf” solution, I/O Biocompatibles offers intelligent natural fabrics based on the remarkable properties of superfine wool fiber and a science of biocompatible design. With the cooperation of the Michell family's 150 years of wool expertise on the coastline of Australia's Southern Ocean, I/O combines the world's finest wool fiber with advanced fabrication methods to create a new breed of apparel.
