Olympic-level protection

By integrating Dyneema® with traditional materials, gear designers can infuse their gear with exceptional performance. Dyneema® raises the game by enhancing strength, cut resistance, and durability.

These qualities were on full display at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. Speed skating teams wearing uniforms designed by Maple Skate and made from a unique Knit with Dyneema® blend achieved unmatched levels of lightness, ventilation, and protection on the ice, deepening Dyneema®’s presence in the cultural mainstream and showing audiences exactly what the world’s strongest fiber™ can do.

Supporting sustainable innovation

Apparel designers don’t just appreciate Dyneema® for its unique material properties – they also value working with the most sustainable high-performance fiber on the market.

All ice sports apparel made with Dyneema® uses bio-based Dyneema® fiber, which carries a 90% lower carbon footprint than generic HMPE fiber. And thanks to Dyneema®’s durability, products last longer, reducing waste and lowering costs over time.

In addition, 100% of the electricity used in our manufacturing comes from renewable sources.

It all adds up to the lowest carbon footprint per unit strength of any high-performance fiber. As consumer demands for sustainable products continue to grow, Dyneema® enables brands to reduce their environmental impact while raising product performance.
