Musto announce new BR2 offshore collection for racers and cruisers

by Musto 18 Mar 12:31 GMT

World-leading performance clothing brand Musto have launched a new BR2 offshore collection for Spring Summer 2022.

Drawing on technologies developed on other Musto offshore product lines, the BR2 products have double the performance capabilities of previous best-selling versions. For the first time, they will be available in Musto's signature HPX Gold colourway, making it accessible for sailors aspiring to the winning heights of professional offshore sailors.

Nick Houchin, Musto's Head of Marketing, commented: "Musto is a brand synonymous with offshore sailing and protecting athletes battling the harshest conditions in the most hostile environments. Over fifty years of research, development and testing in the Southern Ocean have enabled us to engineer world-leading offshore products, ranging from short trips to round the world races. The new BR2 products were put to the test by the X-Yachts team, a Danish luxury performance cruising yacht manufacturer. Using innovations from our MPX and HPX offshore gear, the new BR2 products are packed with new technologies that will protect against any adverse weather conditions."

The new BR2 fabric is the same tried-and-tested proprietary face fabric made of 100% polyamide, but Musto has introduced a new bi-component membrane combining hydrophilic and microporous technology together in one fabric. Hydrophilic technology allows greater water permeability (the process of transferring moisture vapour from the inside to the outer through the membrane), while microporous technology enhances the breathability. As a result the new bi-component membrane has a performance rating of 30k/12k, double the performance of the original fabric.

In addition, a new Long Lasting Durable Water Repellent* (LDWR) has been applied. The LDWR has been developed using fluorocarbon-free chemistry and has a much higher wet abrasion resistance, meaning the fabric will stay drier for longer compared to the original DWR.
