Reconnecting with nature and the environment is often a huge factor in joining the cycling world and it is with this concept that we created the Fox Wilson urban cycling clothing range.
We wanted to push the boundaries with this collection in many ways, including what could be achieved in terms of style with high performance fabrics and cutting edge construction methods. Most importantly, we wanted to push the boundaries of sustainability.
By taking time to research alternative methods of construction and new textiles, we have managed to create a casual cycling clothing collection that is as ecological as it is ground breaking.
Through the use of sustainable fabrics like Bamboo in our cycling t shirts and vests, and Schoeller BlueSign approved chlorine free dye’s in our knitwear, we are committed to offering you the most sustainable cycling clothing we can. We're reducing fabric waste through our X-Knitting process and applying ActiveSilver coatings that result in clothing that need fewer washes. Our design and production process is all undertaken within the UK, reducing our carbon footprint on shipping. Each of these factors have a large overall effect on reducing harm to the environment - something that we're extremely proud to be part of.
We took the decision early on to develop a collection of urban cycling clothing that was not only of the highest quality but also met the highest possible ecological standards. This drew us to use bamboo in our line of vests and T-Shirts. Bamboo as a fabric is warm, thanks to its hollow microfiber, yet it is also breathable allowing performance in all temperatures. This coupled with its naturally antibacterial properties makes it the perfect performance fabric. It is also highly sustainable, yielding the same volume as cotton from only 10% of the land and a fraction of the time, as it grows rapidly in a variety of environments. Once you feel its softness of these cycling tops, you will wonder why you ever wore cotton.
