The All-New Cut Resistant Base Layer Is The Next Generation Of Ski Racing Safety Equipment.
Freedom of movement and safety are two paramount pillars of participating in a high-intensity sport like ski racing. Whether you spend 150 days on snow per year or slug it out on the weekends at the World Pro Ski Tour. All athletes are enduring the same feeling on the hill, restriction of movement is the enemy, and increased confidence in the start gate leads to better performance on the course.
6 Years In The Making.
Since the inception of SYNC, we have been approached by athletes, parents, coaches, and club administrators about the requirements of a cut base layer. These injuries have become increasingly common every season and the risks associated with ski racing have exponentially increased since improved tuning techniques have cascaded down from the World Cup to the junior level.
Close To Home.
Since our first SYNC Team athlete had a career-threatening injury 5 years ago, we have been working directly with our fabric mills to create a proprietary fabric unique to SYNC, that implements all the feedback from athletes, including, breathability, mobility, and protection. Due to these unique athlete requirements, this has been the most challenging innovation to date for the brand.
Attention To Detail.
After 20+ prototypes and countless iterations with a multitude of fabric variations, the SYNC Cut Resistant Base Layer combines coverage from the hip and glutes through the thigh to the calf with a break at the bend in the knee for increased mobility. Working with our partner fabric mills to help them understand this unique problem and inherently risky sport, we were able to innovate on the current cut-resistant fabric options to produce an innovative solution that will help protect athletes and keep them doing what they love to do.
Peace Of Mind.
Forget the stress and anxiety every time you take the hill. With the cut-resistant base layer, you can focus on your performance every turn and move the way you need without risking your career every turn.
The Cut Resistant Base Layer is for those athletes who want to maintain freedom of movement through each turn and want increased protection on the most exposed parts of their legs. Perfect for athletes training at a high level while still protecting themselves from injury.
Testing and Fabric Specifications
The proprietary cut-resistant fabric is comprised up of a Dyneema®/Fiberglass blend, which we independently tested domestically and internationally through verified testing facilities.
Fabric Composition: Cut Resistant Dyneema Blended Knit- 43%POLYETHYLENE HT (Dyneema®)/ 43% Nylon / 14% FIBERGLASS
- European Norm Certified EN:388:2016 Level 4
- American Norm Certified ANSI/ISEA 105-2016 Level A3
Benefits of Dyneema®
- High Strength: On a weight for weight basis, Dyneema® is 15 times stronger than steel
- Water-resistant: Dyneema® is hydrophobic and does not absorb water, meaning it remains light when working in wet conditions
- UV Resistant: Dyneema® has very good resistance to photodegradation, maintaining its performance when exposed to UV light, unlike Kevlar.
Additional Base Layer Details
- Breathable mesh lining with anti-microbial, wicking, quick-dry technology
- Flat drawcord waistband for extra security and reduced movement while skiing
- Flat seaming
- Easy care
Machine wash cold, no bleach, tumble dry low. No dry clean.
PRODUCT DISCLAIMER: We acknowledge that no product on the market can be entirely "cut-proof" and do not claim the SYNC Cut Resistant Base Layer is resistant to all cuts and slices. We have thoroughly tested our fabrics at international facilities on regulated testing machines to achieve the ratings we have, but this does not mean it will eliminate all lacerations while skiing.
