Earlybird pledges are available from £195 or roughly $249 with worldwide shipping expected to take place during March 2020. Check out the introductory video below to learn more about the design of the Graphene-X jacket and its features.
“The Alpha Series is the graphene-integrated all-around jacket that sets a new standard for versatility, performance and comfort. The jacket sports a stylish, minimalistic design thanks to the integration of a graphene layer that makes it waterproof, lightweight, breathable, durable and more.”
“Today, our Alpha Series jacket uses 65% of polyamide (plastic) in its construction (compared to other top performing jackets which have between 95% and 100%). Our goal in time is to reduce this % as much as we can without sacrificing comfort and performance. Eco Bionic coating: PFC Free coating (Eco-friendly) which repels water with no added chemicals. In the outdoor industry, PFCs are common in water-repellent finishes (DWR) . Most DWR coatings contain fluorocarbons or PFCs that have been shown to be a hormone disruptor, like BPA.”
