Sports

As broad as the spectrum of sports equipment are the required material characteristics in applications like the sole of a sports shoe, bicycle components, ski boots or protective clothing and helmets. All these different performance requirements can be met by customized Tepex® material solutions. These combine reduced weight of parts and components with optimum performance such as energy return, impact resistance as well as premium aesthetics of visual parts and surfaces.

Major challenges in the Sports industry can be addressed with Tepex® material solutions:

  • Weight reduction
  • Aesthetics
  • Energy dynamics
  • Mass production ability

The following menu shows standard Tepex® materials for Sport applications. Custom made material lay-ups as well as special fabric constructions will be available on request.
