We spent a lot of time improving our thermoplastic rubber: PER-lite was born in 2021.
The suffix "PER" comes from "PERCHA" (Gutta-percha is the name given to the rubber tree in Malaysia).
LITE stands for LIGHT (lightness)
Light and resistant: offers superior grip and flexibility even at low temperatures. In addition, it is 50% lighter than natural rubber and 100% recyclable.
H-DRY WHAT IS H-DRY? H-Dry® uses a patented one-piece construction process that creates a waterproof and breathable barrier. This impenetrable layer is heat bonded directly to the outer fabric, leaving no seams, no gaps and no water entering. With the traditional waterproof BOOTIE technology, the water enters and remains inside, collecting in the space between the lining and the upper, making them heavy and wet. H-Dry improves internal comfort, keeping you drier, lighter and more comfortable.
H - Dry Technology
