Bamboo White Ash Fabric Advantages
Bamboo White Ash Technology
DannyShane jerseys are made from a proprietary fabric blend with 50% to 55% Bamboo White Ash (BWA). BWA is among the latest innovations in natural performance fibers. In addition to its aesthetic benefits, BWA is also an eco-friendly solution. The material offers natural breathability, rapid moisture wicking, odor resistance, anti-static qualities, durability, and softness that cannot be matched.
By weaving BWA directly into our recycled polyester fabrics, we’re able to ensure that DannyShane jerseys won’t fade or discolor, even after years of daily use. Cyclists can feel confident that DannyShane products will stand the test of time, and that they won’t irritate the skin like other materials may.
Bamboo White Ash also provides cyclists with many comfort and performance benefits, including:
- Naturally wicks moisture rapidly to keep you dry (without any irritating chemicals)
- Captures odor (naturally anti-microbial)
- Provides thermal regulating benefits
- Fibers are durable and long-lasting
- Creates high breathability
- Provides natural UV protection
- Provides ultra soft comfort
- BWA is in every weave of fabric and does not wash out like competitors' chemical rinses
While other cycling garments may contain wool or up to 10% bamboo, our fabric is made from 50% Bamboo White Ash. This makes the DannyShane roadwear collection more breathable, comfortable, thermal regulating and odor resistant than any other performance wear. The moisture-wicking capabilities of bamboo far exceeds that of cotton, wool or any other material. In fact, bamboo absorbs 60% more water than cotton, keeping skin dry, comfortable and cooler in hot temperatures - warmer in cool temperatures.
Cycling bibs require a degree of micro-compression that is not available in a bamboo blend fabric, so DannyShane went in search of the most environmentally-friendly material we could find that did not compromise bib performance. The result is an original design of DannyShane cycling bibs made from Italian fabric that is Bluesign® certified and a blend of Lycra (20%) and 100% recycled nylon (80%).
