Musto Team Up With Sam Goodchild To Create MPX Race Range

In the biggest product launch for five years, world-leading performance clothing brand Musto has unveiled a suite of cutting-edge MPX Race products designed for and tested by competitive offshore sailors. 

Offshore racing is changing: sailors are increasingly spending more time in the protected cockpit and down below, and less time out on deck. But when they are on deck, speeds are only increasing.

As a response to this changing environment, Musto’s MPX Race collection includes a new generation of GORE-TEX Pro* membranes, new photoluminescent reflectors and lighter garments for improved functionality.

The garments also feature a recycled face fabric, making the garment more sustainable than previous iterations. 

Sam Goodchild, Musto Ambassador and skipper of the 50ft trimaran Leyton, commented: “Racing Ocean Fifty’s is physically demanding.

You’re flying along the water at incredible speeds so you need freedom of movement when it comes to trimming sails and grinding.

The new Musto MPX Race collection is an innovation in offshore racing gear and it will help us make those all-important marginal gains when racing”. 

The entire range of MPX Race products are built with a new generation of GORE-TEX Pro membranes, which are waterproof and windproof with enhanced durability, enabling them to withstand the harsh demands of offshore sailing.

The 3-layer GORE-TEX Pro membrane is constructed with a recycled nylon face fabric and a solution-dyed tricot backer for strong abrasion and tear resistance.

“We have looked at every detail to improve functionality, safety, protection and greater agility for the wearer as they move around the boat,” said Shane Rhone, Musto’s Sailing Design Manager.

“Offshore sailors are racing in extremely demanding environments and we want to guarantee that they can be highly competitive and their Musto kit helps improve their performance on the water. Our design innovations and attention to detail make the MPX Race range a market leader.”
