TECHNOLOGIES AND MATERIALS

For more than 20 years RaidLight has been innovating to offer you ever more innovative, technical and lightweight products.

As a pioneer in trail running, we have developed technologies to provide the best possible support for runners in terms of comfort, performance and durability.

MP+ MEMBRANE

THE BALANCE BETWEEN WATERPROOFING AND BREATHABILITY

Developed and technically improved for more than 20 years, MP+ membrane with hydrophilic technology is one of the most efficient on the market.

Known for its high breathability, waterproofing and durability, available in different versions (stretch, ultralight, 2 layer or 3 layer) allowing runners to keep running whatever the weather.

POLYESTER ECO (RECYCLED) OUR TECHNICAL AND ECO-RESPONSIBLE RANGE

Since 2008, RaidLight has been developing more environmentally friendly products without altering the comfort or quality.

Today 20% of our textile collection is made using recycled polyester. A key criteria of development in our 2020-2022 plan, our goal is to reach 75% of our products in eco-friendly materials by 2022.


Our Made In France workshop

At RaidLight, since 2009, we have manufactured a range of products in France. Since 2014, in Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse, we have a modern textile production workshop using innovative technologies to produce a range of products (race vests, shorts, belts and other textiles). Top-of-the-range products manufactured using the latest technologies on the market such as lazer cutting and thermo bonding.

3D MESH, THREE-DIMENSIONAL FABRIC

The 3D Mesh fabric is made from polyester filaments for exceptional levels of breathability and comfort. The 3D honeycomb structure gives excellent moisture movement and has quick drying properties, an exceptional fabric for active sports.

DRYLIGHT, ULTRA BREATHABLE AND FAST DRYING

The DryLight® fabric has been specially designed to enable us to continue to offer you ever lighter clothing, perfect for hot climate races.

Developed with ultra fine 100% polyester fibres, the DryLight® stretch fabric also benefits from a QuickDry treatment, which guarantees good evacuation of perspiration and quick drying, essential properties for your comfort in high heat and humidity.

THERMOFLEECE INSULTAION

Our Thermofleece fabrics are used in our Wintertrail range. The smooth stretch outer gives durability and some weather resistance, the brushed lining gives exceptional warmth and moisture control. Perfect for cold weather.

LAZER TECH PERFORMANCE AND INNOVATION

Lazertech is our innovative textile laser cutting process.

This technology allows a clean cut, making perfect matched seams with no overlap, also, we can cut perfect holes in fabrics to achieve increased ventilation in key areas. This process is used on our Made In France range.

FLATLOCK SEAM SYSTEM

Flatlock technology allows the creation of flat seams by combining fabrics edge-to-edge, without overlapping material keeps the seam flat.

By using flatlock seams we create products that have reduced possibility of friction "chafe" problems.

FREELOCK MICROMETRIC ADJUSTMENT

The Freelock adjustment system is a dial system that micro adjusts to an individuals shape, allow you to get a perfect fit.

This technology is present on our race vests to allow a balanced, precise, and quick adjustment to each persons shape, size and required tension.

DUPONT SORONA MICRO-FIBRE

Developed by the Dupont-de-Nemours group, SORONA is a polyester micro-fibre made of 37% corn glucose.

In addition to its renewable nature, the manufacture of this fibre consumes less energy than for similar fibres. Soft and quick-drying, it wicks moisture away perfectly.

SENSOR3 COMFORT, ENERGY, PERFORMANCE

Sensor-3 technology is present in all our shoes

Sensor 3 exists in the insole/footbed and the midsoles, in both cases we utilise dual density construction to support and cushion the foot whilst maintaining a dynamic stride.
