Directa Plus says sportswear represents a "substantial potential market for our G+"

Directa Plus Plc's (LON:DCTA) said Oakley and Bioracer have launched a cycling jersey using the company's G+ graphene.

The G+ Graphene Aero Jersey was unveiled at the Eurobike 2018 trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on Monday.

The jersey was treated with G+, which distributes heat generated by the body in cold conditions and releases it when needed in warmer weather, meaning cyclists use less energy to regulate body temperature.

Fabrics treated with G+ are also electrostatic and bacteriostatic, helping to reduce sweat and body odour.

“Sportswear represents a substantial potential market for our G+ and we're delighted to have added cycling clothing to our portfolio of G+-enhanced textiles for sport, which includes skiing, golf and athleisure.”
