coldblack® technology

coldblack® fact sheet

coldblack® treatment is a key feature of our Conquest Performance 1 Bib Shorts and Performance 2 Bib Shorts. coldblack® is a special finishing technology which reduces heat build-up on dark colours and provides reliable protection from UV rays.

  • coldblack® acts as a sun reflector and UV protector. Light coloured textiles reflect both visible and invisible rays of sunlight meaning that both light and heat are radiated back. coldblack® reduces absorption of heat rays, particularly in darker colours, and in all textiles. The result is tangibly better heat management.
  • The coldblack® technology guarantees a minimum UPF of 30 when applied to any textile in any colour without affecting the look or feel of the product. As a result, fabrics with coldblack® can make an effective contribution to protecting against harmful UV rays.
  • Normally dark fabrics without coldblack® absorb up to 90% of the heat rays. Conquest Performance Bib Shorts treated with coldblack® reflect up to 80% of the heat rays and stay noticeably cooler.
  • coldblack® components comply both with the demands of the Ecotex Standard 100 and the even stricter bluesign® standard. The bluesign® standard excludes the use of components or processes that are potentially hazardous to humans or the environment.
