Portsmouth, NH (January 4, 2016) – Dare 2b is proud to debut their new Black Label for fall 2016. Designed for the performance aficionado and fashion elite, the Dare 2b Black Label is their most premium collection to date. A monochrome color scheme makes way for the features of the range to be the star of the show. Wool look fabrics, sleek branding and metallic zips add to the premium feel of the collection. With a shorter and sportier fit, and a new deeper collared hood, Dare 2b’s Black Label jackets and pants are suitable for even the most challenging days on the slopes.
For ultimate performance, Black Label styles feature three of Dare 2b’s proprietary technologies: AEP Kinematics, Endothermic performance, and Oxyflow Ventilation. AEP Kinematics technology provides perfected freedom of movement, analyzing points of motion during athletic performance. Endothermic Performance Technology provides extra protection from the bitter cold with wool fill insulation and wool look performance fabrics. Dare 2b’s Oxyflow Ventilation system gives the wearer maximum airflow for a demanding day on the slopes by reducing over heating and perspiration build up.
The use of Dare 2b’s proprietary alpaca wool mix insulation fabric, Ilus Wool, further enhances thermoregulation and moisture control. Ilus Wool technology is designed to naturally insulate the user, keeping them drier and odor free, also making it ideal as an active wear piece.
