'For a cool, dry run—and a dapper look—Tracksmith’s Strata Tee is a top performer.'
—THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
This high performance running tee features a unique breathable knit structure and is finished with coldblack® to deliver UV protection and minimize heat absorption.
Air It Out
Soggy shorts, clingy shirts, and punishing humidity. Each mile hotter than the last. When you’re deep in a summer training program, the heat can be relentless—even if you hit the road for a long run just after sunrise. We wanted to build a top that’s light and airy without feeling scratchy and synthetic. Enter the Strata, our most technical short sleeve delivered in a classic tee silhouette with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 30+.
When we were developing our singlets for the Olympic Marathon Trials, we worked with the team at Schoeller to craft one of the most technical fabrics on the market: a silky-soft and feather-light nylon blend with a unique grid structure that rapidly moves moisture away from the skin and prevents any cling. It was an update on our best-selling Strata fabric, and performed so well in Atlanta that we introduced it across the collection for summer.
Beat The Heat
The material is treated with UVA and UVB-protection, a coldblack® finish to reduce heat absorption and an active>silver™ anti-microbial finish to reduce odors. Together, the technical properties of Strata help you transition from mid-summer base building to peak fall training.
In 1868, Rudolph Schoeller moved to Switzerland to open the country’s first worsted-yarn mill. A century-and-a-half later, Schoeller Textil remains the gold standard in performance fabrics. They’ve adapted to the times and have always been one step ahead of what athletes need, which is why we picked two of their proprietary technologies for the Strata: coldblack®, which reduces heat absorption and provides UV protection, and active>silver™, an anti-microbial finish that regulates and reduces odor.
