ODLO releases ultralight, ISPO award-winning trail running t-shirt 

The X-Alp Performance Wool 115 headlines ODLO’s new summer weight Performance Wool collection

ODLO’s latest ISPO award-winner is now here – the definitive trail running shirt for everyday athletes who want exceptional natural performance in warm temperatures.  

Available from March 2023, the X-Alp PW 115 was singled out by an independent jury at ISPO – (the leading international sports platform that recognises the most outstanding products and services in the outdoor industry) – for making merino relevant to summer thanks to its Nuyarn® fabric composition.

By working with Nuyarn® - the revolutionary twist-free wool spinning technology that amplifies the natural performance properties of merino twisted out by traditional spinning methods – ODLO has developed a modern merino t-shirt that’s lighter, stronger and faster drying than anything that’s come before it. 

The t-shirt’s unrivalled performance benefits include:

5 times faster drying than traditional merino and enhanced temperature regulation - Nuyarn fabric absorbs moisture at vapour stage before droplets of perspiration form.

Extra freedom of movement - Nuyarn fabric provides 85 per cent more elasticity than traditional merino and ODLO’s underarm construction ensures that the t-shirt moves with you.

Improved sustainability and durability – Nuyarn fabric uses 30 per cent less raw materials and is over 8 times more abrasion resistant.

Paired with running packs on long runs in the mountains, the X-Alp PW 115 sets a new standard in trail running t-shirts. 

Team ODLO X-Alp runner Maxime Grenot notes: "It's ultra-breathable on the skin and very comfortable to move in. Like nothing you'd expect. A totally new kind of merino."

Discover the X-Alp PW 115 and experience running in lightweight, high performance, natural wool. You'll never look back.
