Professional sailors don’t have time to think about staying dry while speeding through rough waters on a race course.
What matters is the boat, moving as a unit, and taking the vessel across the finish line. Hopefully, first.
So when the team at Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli approached us in search of the best offshore technical gear they could wear to fully focus on their training, we stepped up to the challenge.
Working closely with the experts at Prada to get the colour, logos and fit of the gear just right, what’s emerged is a custom on-water set for every team member to wear while they train for their push to win the 2021 America’s Cup.
As the Official Supplier of the team’s extreme technical offshore racing gear, we’re pretty damn excited to give seasoned sailors the experience of the EP6.5 Collection; a bomb-proof set of ocean racing pieces that redefine technical sailing gear.
“Mustang Survival provides guaranteed protection against the elements at 50 knots, ensuring each one of us can focus on doing our job to the best of our ability day after day” said team member Shannon Falcone. “With over 40 team members on the water when supporting the AC75 training sessions, maximizing the collective efficiency means we can focus on our goal of winning the America’s Cup. I look forward to taking on this challenge together!”
While the custom kits for the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team aren’t available for sale, the EP6.5 collection is ready to take you on your ocean racing adventures.
