7 different Dyneema fabrics win ISPO awards

Jul '16
Seven different Dyneema fabrics have been awarded the ISPO awards for 'Best Products Spring/Summer 2016' at the ISPO Textrends 2016 forum.

According to DSM Dyneema, the maker of Dyneema fibre, the fibre is fifteen times stronger than steel and lighter than water and has long been used to moor oilrigs, sail ships and resist bullets.

“As a composite fabric, it is becoming increasingly popular with high-performance sports, from mountain climbing to motorcycling, since it can also be engineered to enhance particular properties,” the company added.

The 'Best Product Soft Equipment' award went to CT9HK.18/blkwov6, used in backpack and bag fabric and which, combines Dyneema strength with the abrasion-resistance of woven polyester.

The CT0.3E.08 bagged the 'Top 5 Soft Equipment' award, which is an extremely light and thin fabric ideal for emergency shelters and jackets.

Another 'Top 5 Soft Equipment' award went to CT2HHBSW6-2.0, in which Dyneema fibres are placed in 4-directions to create an ultimately low-stretch fabric for footwear and bags.

CT2E.08 OD, an ultra-lightweight Dyneema Composite fabric, especially designed for tents and tarps used by minimalist backpackers won the 'Selection Soft Equipment' award.

One more 'Selection Soft Equipment' award was bagged by CT9HK.18/W6-2.0, which is used for backpacks and bags, in which a flexible abrasion-resistant urethane coating shows off the high-tech Dyneema fibres below.

In the category of 'Selection Street Sports', the award was won by Kinetech Guard, an elastic Dyneema woven fabric for rip and abrasion-resistant protective shorts for cycling and other street sports.

Another 'Selection Street Sports' ISPO award went to DDRD0021; a Dyneema Denim, designed for protective motorcycle jackets and pants. (AR)
