It’s time to mark your summer calendar for the Maratona delle Dolomiti: on July 2nd, the 36th edition of the sports event known as the “Queen of Granfondo” will take place, and Carvico has been a golden partner for 13 years.

This is one of the most famous and spectacular cycling races in the world, held annually in the stunning Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It’s a 138 km cycling challenge that crosses some of the most iconic mountain passes in this region, such as Passo Pordoi, Passo Sella, and Passo Giau, offering a unique and exciting experience.

The Partnership between Carvico and the Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel

“As a company, we have chosen to support the Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel for several years, an event that we believe is very much in line with our philosophy. We are there for athletes with clothing that can support and enhance their performance while also being there for the environment, which we must protect and respect,” says Laura Colnaghi Calissoni, President of the Carvico Group. She explains that the two pillars that have always united the two entities are a love for sports and a respect for the environment. The Bergamo-based company’s participation in the marathon is active and concrete; this year, it has provided 9,000 vests made from its eco-fabrics, included in the race packets for the participating athletes. Creating a “green” uniform is a significant gesture that places Carvico at the forefront of environmental preservation, starting with the choice of materials for making the vests: Norway and Revolutional Eco, two eco-sustainable techno-fabrics made from recycled raw materials and produced with ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated nylon thread from pre and post-consumer waste materials, such as fishing nets, carpet fluff, and rigid tulle. Carvico’s corporate ethics and production processes have always been characterized by the combination of excellent technical characteristics and a strong commitment to sustainability. An example of this is their extensive range of eco-friendly fabrics designed for sports.

Appropriate Clothing for the Maratona dles Dolomites

Carvico vests dedicated to the Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel are characterized by simple lines and a perfect fit, making them a winning ally for athletes. They offer excellent protection and the ability to ensure maximum freedom of movement, thanks to elasticity, breathability, and durability, which are the main features that sports clothing must possess for athletes looking to enhance their performance. During a cycling race, temperatures can vary, so it’s essential to have layered clothing that can be easily added or removed as needed. The advice is to wear at least three layers: a short-sleeved or sleeveless jersey as a base layer, a long-sleeved jersey on top, and a windproof vest on top of everything. The partnership between Carvico and the Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel is a virtuous example of how innovation, sports performance, and respect for the environment can be combined. This vest created for this event demonstrates to everyone that excellent results can be achieved in sportswear without compromising the health of our planet.
