Valentino Rossi testing AREAS engineered vest

Valentino Rossi is currently testing a new technical vest developed by AREAS – Academy for Research and Engineering in Apparel and Sport. As can be seen in the photos posted on his Instagram profile @valeyellow46, followed by almost 10 million people, the greatest motorcycle racers of all time, with nine Grand Prix World Championships to his name in four different classes, is training on the dirt track of his Ranch in Tavullia with the high-performance product custom-made in our laboratories.

Valentino’s vest is the result of sophisticated design and the most advanced technologies in the textile field. Our patented Membrain115 membrane makes it entirely waterproof, windproof and breathable at the same time for perfect body-temperature management whatever the weather. The high elasticity of the 3D knitted fabric allows the vest to adapt naturally to the protection on the back and sides, without creating constrictions and providing optimal comfort.

AREAS’s mission is to advance knowledge in the functional apparel field by developing increasingly high-performance technologies, fibres and fabrics. Thanks to scientific research, rapid prototyping and rigorous testing in the laboratory and in the field, AREAS products support champions of the calibre of Valentino Rossi in their pursuit of the best performance.
