From 7 to 9 February during the upcoming Première Vision Paris show, The Woolmark Company will present its unique partnership with the Nissan Formula E team. The new Team Kit created in collaboration with Woolmark as well as the Nissan Formula E race car, a 100% electric car, will be unveiled exclusively in a dedicated area in Hall 6.
The Woolmark Company, new technical partner of Nissan Formula E team
The Woolmark Company has joined the Nissan Formula E team as a technical partner to develop their new uniform, an innovative outfit made from merino wool.
For the first time, Merino wool has been put to the test through the Nissan team’s uniform, created and developed for its participation in season 9 of the Formula E championship in the all-electric category.
These uniforms herald the emergence of a new type of equipment in motorsport, designed from natural materials and taking advantage of the intrinsic properties of Merino wool to maximise performance and comfort for the whole team.
The partnership brings a new level of technicality to the new Nissan Formula E racing uniforms. Created with durability and performance in mind, the Merino wool blend is made up of under layers, mid layers and outer layers and includes an average of 50% Merino wool to enhance performance through the technical benefits of wool.
“This partnership aims to create the most innovative team kit in motorsport history, combining the original performance of a fibre, merino wool, with one of the most technological sports on the planet, Formula E. The merino wool Team Kit includes T-shirts, polo shirts, shirts, trousers, shorts, mid-layers, softshell jackets and caps. Soft on the skin, merino wool has unrivalled thermoregulatory and breathable properties, perfectly suited to high performance clothing.”
Season 9 will be Nissan FE’s fifth in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and marks the start of the Gen3 era. Nissan Formula E brings zero-emission electric vehicles to a global audience.
