ULTRAWEAVE, which was created
following years of vigorous wear testing with PUMA athletes, is an ultra-light
weight fabric that is engineered for optimized performance.

The
jersey has a base chassis weighing only 72 grams, with extreme weight
reduction achieved through a lightweight woven fabric featuring a 4-way
engineered mechanical stretch that will make PUMA players and teams faster and more
dynamic.

 

As
part of the brand’s Faster Football movement, PUMA aims to push boundaries,
innovate, and bring fresh products to football. ULTRAWEAVE is a unique
combination of fabric, pattern construction and applications (trims) that give
the garment it’s unique properties, delivering the most ultra-lightweight and
comfortable performance apparel PUMA has ever made in their
mission to be the fastest sports brand in the world.

 

The
lightweight woven fabric features a 2-dimensional ripstop structure
that stays durable while enhancing player movement and drastically reducing
weight. Further weight reduction is achieved through a specially crafted
pattern that reduces the conventional design of four to eight panels into just
two main panels – reducing the number of seams and stitches in the jersey.
Additionally, the ULTRAWEAVE jerseys feature a new print technique for
team/federation and PUMA logos, which is lighter and more breathable than
traditional transfers.

ULTRAWEAVE
retains performance, durability and breathability measures with
thermo-regulating properties to ensure optimal performance in extreme
conditions. The dryCELL recycled polyester jersey is fast drying and
reduces water retention, which allows for optimal performance when wet or dry.

Stefano
Favaro, Creative Director Teamsport, PUMA said that, their athletes wanted
something lighter and faster to help them achieve marginal gains needed at the
highest level. This resulted in four years of testing and development to
achieve the lightest football jersey they ever made.

 

The
new technology has been applied to the Italy Home jersey for the very first
time for Italy’s upcoming Nations League semi-final against Spain. The special
material has been incorporated in the existing Renaissance Home jersey pattern
as
PUMA debut their lightest ever jersey on pitch
in one of the biggest games of the season.
