The all new Valour Active - COMING SOON

Valour Sport kit out the ATN Solar Car team in fashion-forward sportswear for the Bridgestone World Solar Car Challenge.

The ATN Solar Car Team is the first of its kind in Australia to compete in the Bridgestone World Solar Car challenge. It’s a collaboration of five universities - University of Technology Sydney, RMIT University, University of South Australia, QUT and Curtin University.

ATN's team manager, Anna Lidfors Lindqvist, chose Valour Sport to design their race uniform. "Valour Sport stood out as innovators of sportswear technology. We loved the fact they had the technology and design savvy to create a one-of-a-kind race uniform for the whole ATN Solar Car team - males, females, drivers, the support team and team managers."

"We're all about the environment and so is Valour. Their factory is 100% solar powered, packing boxes and tissue paper are manufactured from recycled materials and their sportswear is packaged in biodegradable bags", Anna added.

Following an early meeting with Anna and sustainable fashion designer Dr Mark Liu, Valour set about creating a collection of sportswear that would endure the harsh heat and cold nights in the Australian outback.

ATN's race uniform includes short sleeve and long sleeve polo shirts, dress shorts, sports shorts, 7/8 Ladies tights, sports socks, caps, sports bags and even camp chairs.

Featuring a striking star feature panel designed by Dr Mark Liu, the team's polo shirts are reminiscent of a solar array grid pattern and the stars of the Southern Cross Constellation. They're treated with Polygiene Odour Control Technology, which is good news for teammates sharing a tent on the road and the environment. Sportswear treated with Polygiene can be worn more and washed less.

The team’s female drivers will love their 7/8 tights. They look amazing, and are functional too. Features such as an extra wide waistband and flatlock stitching, ensuring the tights stay in place and are comfortable for all day wear. When you sit in a car for 10 hours a day, comfort is key!
