TeXtreme was presented as the winner in the Fiberrik competition, a national competition for innovations in technical textiles in Sweden.

The jury motivated its decision as follows:
“The product of the winning entry fulfils the criteria of the competition well. It is a highly innovative and all textile product within the field of technical textiles with great market potential, now and in the future. The product has already come a long way in its development and commercialisation. This technical textile can be used to produce lighter, firmer and stronger composites to a low cost.
