IBF – Italian Bike Festival
9th – 11th September 2022 – Misano World Circuit
On the occasion of the Italian Bike Festival, SCOTT Racing Team will present the team’s sustainable uniform produced by the sportswear manufacturer Rosti and developed with the premium stretch fiber ROICA™ by Asahi Kasei, internationally recognized for stretch innovation and responsibility, fiber that we find the fabrics by Sitip, company specializing in the production of stretch and circular fabrics that combine tradition and innovation with a choice of sustainable manufacturing. A uniform created starting from the athletes’ needs to offer them the best solution in terms of style and ergonomics, high performance, easy maintenance, perfect fit and sustainability.
This year, an even more advanced R&D has led to the creation of the new responsible shorts, made with the NATIVE-THUNDERBIKE POWER fabric by Sitip, designed for high-performance sports and made of the recycled stretch yarn ROICA™ EF by Asahi Kasei and recycled polyamide. A fabric particularly suitable for making cycling shorts for its maximum coverage, thanks to the ECLIPSE Sun Protection technology, which protects from UV rays and guarantees the right breathability, great comfort and perfect fit.
Also the jersey has been produced with Sitip’s recycled fabrics: NATIVE-BICIMANIA and NATIVE-PIRATA, in recycled polyester and GRS certified, enriched by the MICROSENSE Soft Performance technology – able to guarantee softness and maximum comfort on the skin – and made with the sustainable recycled stretch yarn ROICA™ EF by Asahi Kasei.
A complete uniform that combines top and shorts providing both high performance and respect for the environment, needs and values that the athletes appreciate, pursue and support. A uniform that can also be purchased by the public for their ergonomic, performance and responsible everyday life, on the ROSTI website at this link.
In the words of Ivano Camozzi, President SCOTT Racing Team: “Racing at the highest level requires commitment, sacrifice and top materials at the same time. For the equipment we rely on Sitip, Rosti and ROICA™ partnership, three level partners who support us with a racing uniform that guarantees high performance. The performance of this uniform is also accompanied by a sustainable and responsible design of which we are 100% proud of”.
The SCOTT Racing Team season has started a few months ago and the team of Juri Ragnoli, Jacopo Billi, Cristian Cominelli, Pietro Sarai and Andrea Siffredi, is field-testing the uniform with brilliant results: the excellent performance is confirmed by the athletes, as well as breathability, comfort and perfect fit, for running while safeguarding the environment.
About the next steps: eyes on the month of September full of events including the marathon world championship to be held in Denmark on Sept. 18.
At the Italian Bike Festival, the European exhibition leader for the cycling and soft mobility market since 2018, more than 400 brands will reach end consumers, business partners and media. New trends and innovation in the industry, panel discussions, workshops and events will enrich a three-day event for sportsmen, athletes and amateurs of one of the most popular and inclusive sports in the world, a sport that has been able to influence contemporary lifestyle and change the concept of mobility, intended for sports, urban or leisure, as we conceive it today.
