PUMA Breaks Performance Barriers with Lightest ever Jersey Featuring Ultrawave Technology

Lightest Jersey by Puma

Global sports company Puma has developed Ultraweave, its lightest ever performance apparel technology engineered to deliver the game’s fastest football jersey. The new technology debuted on October 6, worn by the Italy men’s national team at the Nations League semi-final against Spain. It will also be worn by the Italy women’s national team.

Ultraweave, which was created following years of vigorous wear testing with Puma athletes, is an ultra-light weight fabric that is engineered for optimised 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, the company said in a media release.

Ultraweave is a combination of fabric, pattern construction and applications (trims) that give the garment it’s unique properties. 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 at Puma said: “Sport is defined by split seconds. Therefore, we identified apparel as a product that we could evolve to a new level. We felt we could give our players and teams a tangible performance benefit over 90 minutes. During a game players cover an average of 10 to 13.5 km with high intensity action every 60 seconds. To perform at your optimal level during a game, the apparel needs to adapt and evolve. Through Ultraweave, we are able to reduce apparel and kit weight and restrictions to improve performance.”
