L&L Products is pleased to announce its new CCubed™ technology is a Top 10 Winner of the ISPO Textrends Award in the Soft Equipment category. A panel of experts evaluated the material based on weight, durability, abrasion resistance, UV protection, and waterproofing in the product category that includes backpacks, sleeping bags, and shoes.
CCubed™, the innovative polyester (PET) fiber-based performance cushioning material, is engineered to optimize wearer comfort through novel sweat management.
“We are grateful to ISPO for recognizing CCubed™ as a Top 10 Textrends award winner,” said Greg Thompson, who led the development of the CCubed™ technology at L&L Products. “Our CCubed™ technology elevates wearer comfort in a broad range of applications, including footwear, backpacks, impact padding, helmet liners, and horse blankets – in essence, anywhere that polyurethane (PU) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foams are used today for cushioning.”
CCubed™ material has a breathable 3D structure that provides cushioning, allows heat to escape, wicks sweat away from the skin, and helps create an evaporative cooling effect. Based on PET technology, the material can typically be more easily recycled or repurposed than EVA or PU foams. Unlike polyurethane foams, it contains no toxic isocyanates.
The technology is featured in the ISPO award-winning backpacks from NEMO Equipment, where it elevates the performance of the packs by providing sweat management in the back panels, shoulder straps, and hip belts.
Officially launched in August 2023, CCubed™ will be exhibited at ISPO Munich (Munich, Germany) on November 28-30, 2023 in the L&L Products booth.
