Seattle, WA -October 24th: Vertx, a brand devoted exclusively to original and authentic apparel for the Operational Athlete™, in cooperation with Schoeller AG, the innovative textile company of Switzerland and Gruppo Basic of Hong Kong, introduces the revolutionary, new LE Motorcycle Suit.
This suit offers world-class design, comfort, functionality, and high day and night visibility thanks to its 3M tape, piping, and panels. It also offers multiple pads meeting the EN1621-1 1997standards. The LE Motorcycle Suit will be on display at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Chicago Oct. 23-25 (Vertx exhibit #1255).
The suit, designed using highly durable, abrasion resistant fabrics such as schoeller-dynatec® featuring NanoSphere® for additional dirt, water and oil repellency, also utilizes Schoeller airflow mesh in key areas allowing air to pass through the garment. The suit incorporates Schoeller Technologies’ coldblack® finishing that reflects the sun’s heat and light, keeping the officer cooler and protected from harmful UV rays. Additionally, 3XDRY® is used in key areas to ensure comfort with the feelgood technology that helps keep the wearer cool and dry.
The LE Motorcycle Suit is offered with optional wind resistant or waterproof liners that zip into the shell of the suit. Thanks to the NanoSphere finish, the suit keeps the officer dry and clean longer, and incredibly enough, is machine washable for easy care.
