Innovations

Want to know more about how our innovations and products? Here are just some examples of how our science is driving the world of sport forward.
Fall during training

Dyneema®

For the 2019 season DSM worked alongside Craft Sportswear, the team's new apparel partner, and the team's own experts to incorporate Dyneema® into crucial areas of the 2019 Armor Bib Shorts. On a weight-for-weight basis Dyneema is 15 times stronger than steel, so light it floats, as soft as silk and hydrophobic so it doesn't absorb water (or sweat!).

Dyneema helps to prevent the short's fabric from ripping should a rider crash, protecting the skin from the sort of abrasion injury typical in a fall at speed, boosting their safety and confidence.

Protecting eyesight

FloraGLO® lutein & Optisharp® zeaxanthin

Lutein and zeaxanthin are both carotenoids that contribute to the development of the pigment in the macula, a small, extra-sensitive area of the eye that gives you central vision. The macula contains a pigment vital for protecting the eye and helping it to recover from damaging UV radiation and the invisible ‘blue’ shades in sunlight that are particularly damaging to vision. 

Exhausting training

Fruitflow®

Fruitflow® harnesses the anti-platelet compounds of tomato fruit, which helps maintain normal platelet aggregation and is s the first natural solution scientifically proven to contribute to healthy blood flow. 

Recovery

PeptoPro®

PeptoPro® is an established brand in the world of sports nutrition. PeptoPro is a highly advanced peptide formulation derived from dairy protein. Containing all 20 amino acids needed for muscle protein synthesis, these molecules are so small, they need no digestion and can be absorbed quickly by the body for instant delivery to the muscle.
