MAAREE x ashmei Empower Sports Bra
Women’s Cycling is finally beginning to get the attention that it rightly deserves. From the Women’s tour to the first Women’s Paris Roubaix. The sport is now coming to the fore, and therefore so should the kit the riders are using. Therefore we partnered with our friends at sustainable performance cycling brand ashmei to collaborate on a special edition of our Empower Medium-Impact Sports Bras.
Cycling creates dynamic movements in two axis, up to down and side to side. Therefore we incorporated our Overband Technology into this sports bra to provide the support required whether attacking on a climb or on the drops from the top of a col. The Overband is a tensioned band that runs over the top of the breasts, ensuring we are supporting upwards motion as well as downward.
Featured in Cycling Weekly, Cyclist Magazine and Rouleur, the ashmei collaboration has gained plaudits for its comfort, support and breathability, key when cycling in the hottest of climates.
Sustainability is important to us. More and more clothing is being sent to landfills each day and we want to help combat this. In our clothing we include ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon fibre made from nylon waste otherwise polluting the Earth, such as fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic rescued from all over the world.
Why is this fabric so good for our sportswear? It is extremely smooth, allowing for a sculpted shape and fit. Read more
