The Woolmark Company has developed the Nissan Formula E team’s uniform for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship

Merino wool’s innate performance properties are exploited in technical layering for optimum durability, performance and comfort.

The racing uniforms feature Merino wool blend base-layers, mid-layers and outer-layers, supporting performance through the fibre’s unique natural benefits as a 100% natural, renewable, biodegradable and recyclable fibre.

The Merino Perform certified team kit features T-shirts, polo shirts, shirts, trousers, shorts, mid-layers, softshell jackets and caps. Soft on skin, Merino wool’s unbeatable moisture management, thermoregulation and breathability properties are perfectly matched to performance-led environments.

“Our partnership with The Woolmark Company will provide the Nissan Formula E Team with a high-performance kit made with natural and biodegradable Merino wool fibre,” said Tommaso Volpe, managing director of the Nissan Formula E team.
