Wakefield, MA, October 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The new UFC training apparel with Agion Active will soon be available at retail.
Sciessent, makers of the Agion Active® brand of odor elimination technology partners with Ultimate Fighting Championship, the world’s leading mixed martial arts organization, to develop a new line of high performance men’s and women’s training apparel. UFC’s training apparel featuring Agion Active odor control technology will soon be embraced and utilized by the finest competitive athletes who compete and train through the UFC.
Agion Active represents the next generation of superior odor control for apparel. Agion Active is a dual-action technology that not only provides antimicrobial product protection and industrial-strength odor elimination but also eliminates odors on and around the fabric. An antimicrobial technology based on elemental ions and other naturally occurring elements, stops the spread of odor-causing bacteria on the fabric while a natural, proprietary odor-trapping solution captures molecules from ambient odors. Designed to endure the most demanding activities, like those brought on by UFC training, Agion Active controls odor to deliver unparalleled, long lasting freshness. Agion Active regenerates with each wash/dry cycle so it’s always ready to perform.
“At UFC, we pride ourselves in anticipating what aggressive athletes need in order to perform at the top of their game,” said Lisa Swanson, product line manager for UFC. “Once we experienced the proven strength of Agion Active we knew our athletes would appreciate its ability to keep them fresh even during the most grueling, sweat inducing training they choose to take on.”
“We are proud to partner with the UFC to deliver scent control to their new training apparel line,” said Paul Ford, chief executive officer at Sciessent. “We are excited that many of the world’s toughest athletes will depend on Agion Active for a new level of freshness.”
The new UFC training men’s and women’s apparel line with Agion Active will be available in early 2013, online at www.ufcstore.com and at select retail locations.
