Dyedron – the future in sustainable skiing
Four years ago Peak Performance started investigating the possibilities in dying ski wear in a more sustainable way. The use of the revolutionary Drydye® fabric technology from the Yeh Group totally eliminates water in the dyeing process and requires 50% less energy and 50% fewer chemicals.
“The technology is a game changer. Everybody working with garments knows that the dying process is what requires the most water and now we know that it’s possible to dye all types of fabrics without water which is a big step towards a more sustainable industry,” says Per Odqvist, Fabric R&D at Peak Performance.
On top of that, the outer, the membrane, lining, padding and the details of the Peak Performance Dyedron Jacket and Pant set are all made from 100% recycled or recyclable polyester. An eco-friendly ski set designed with the environment and the future in focus without compromising the functionality and protection needed to hit the slopes.
