In the biggest product launch for five years, world-leading performance clothing brand Musto has unveiled a suite of cutting-edge MPX Race products designed for and tested by competitive offshore sailors.

Offshore racing is changing: sailors are increasingly spending more time in the protected cockpit and down below, and less time out on deck. But when they are on deck, speeds are only increasing. As a response to this changing environment, Musto's MPX Race collection includes a new generation of GORE-TEX Pro* membranes, new photoluminescent reflectors and lighter garments for improved functionality. The garments also feature a recycled face fabric, making the garment more sustainable than previous iterations.

Sam Goodchild, Musto Ambassador and skipper of the 50ft trimaran Leyton, commented: "Racing Ocean Fifty's is physically demanding. You're flying along the water at incredible speeds so you need freedom of movement when it comes to trimming sails and grinding. The new Musto MPX Race collection is an innovation in offshore racing gear and it will help us make those all-important marginal gains when racing."

The entire range of MPX Race products are built with a new generation of GORE-TEX Pro membranes, which are waterproof and windproof with enhanced durability, enabling them to withstand the harsh demands of offshore sailing. The 3-layer GORE-TEX Pro membrane is constructed with a recycled nylon face fabric and a solution-dyed tricot backer for strong abrasion and tear resistance.

"We have looked at every detail to improve functionality, safety, protection and greater agility for the wearer as they move around the boat," said Shane Rhone, Musto's Sailing Design Manager. "Offshore sailors are racing in extremely demanding environments and we want to guarantee that they can be highly-competitive and their Musto kit helps improve their performance on the water. Our design innovations and attention to detail make the MPX Race range a market leader."

New SS22 Musto MPX Race products and features:

MPX Race
MPX Race kit serves sailors that require an equally high level of water and weather protection, as well as maneuverability and breathability:

MPX Gore-Tex Pro Race Jacket 2.0 (£550)

  • GORE-TEX mechanical stretch has been added into seamless shoulder panels, offering maximum freedom of movement.
  • Recycled face fabric.
  • Ergonomically considered seams, articulated sleeves and underarm gussets enhance agility.
  • New and improved collar system featuring an internal PU* coated collar with gusset and velcro tab adjustment and an external overlaid collar with hook and loop adjustment to improve waterproof protection.
  • Top loading hood engineered with GORE-TEX Paclite high-vis, concealed within the external collar. This reduces the bulk at the back of the neck when the hood is stowed, making the style more comfortable to wear with a life vest.

  • GORE-TEX mechanical stretch has been added into seamless shoulder panels, offering maximum freedom of movement.
  • Recycled face fabric.

  • Chest pocket has been removed and a new and improved lower pocket construction with two waterproof zips opening to a large kangaroo pocket. An additional pocket, with top waterproof zip access, is bonded to the kangaroo pocket and allows access for a navigation tablet, map or notepad. All pockets feature water drainage holes and can be accessed whilst wearing a life vest
MPX GORE-TEX Pro Race Salopette 2.0 (£475)
  • Redesigned upper back shoulder panel, constructed from a single layer of four-way stretch CORDURA®* with a long-lasting Durable Water Repellent (DWR)* for improved freedom of movement.
  • Recycled face fabric.
  • Slimmed down legs reduce weight and bulk
  • Abrasion resistant knee pads for added durability when moving and kneeling around onboard
