Sustainable materials for top performance

uvex vida planet

A new combination of high-tech materials and recycled components. Featuring UV protection and extremely secure grip, even in wet conditions. For perfect control of the reins. A riding glove made from sustainable materials with zero compromise in terms of performance and comfort: the uvex vida planet. This is a lightweight and functional summer glove that consists of more than 55% recycled components. Recycled nylon on the back of the hand and highly abrasion-resistant material made from recycled water bottles on the palm combined with stable high-end stretch that doesn’t lose its shape. In addition, reinforced zones in areas where the reins are held, maximum UVA, UVB and UVC protection and particularly non-slip material on the palm for maximum grip and perfect rein control, even in wet conditions. The uvex vida planet – because we love the planet.

The new uvex vida planet riding glove combines our protecting planet claim with our mission of protecting people. The model is the first equestrian product available under our uvex planet series, produced in a sustainable and highly environmentally friendly way without compromising on performance. To underline our protecting planet mission, we donate 1 euro for every pair sold to the Rainer Winter Foundation, with the aim of supporting the riding therapy centre operated by the charitable association Lebenshilfe Nürnberger Land.

Urban Planet Challenge

A campaign was organised from 1 June to 31 July 2023 under the motto: “Do something good for yourself and the environment”. The Urban Planet Challenge offered cyclists the opportunity to track the routes they ride and in so doing, to collect points to win amazing prizes. Teams of riders racked up the kilometres together with the aim of raising awareness of urban sustainability efforts. Each and every kilometre covered by the competing cyclists goes towards creating the cities of tomorrow in which life is less hectic and the air we breathe is far cleaner. As part of this initiative, uvex sports committed to contributing 10 euros to the Rainer Winter Foundation for each participant, with an overall sum of 5,000 euros ultimately donated.


The proceeds went to the primary and middle school on Schwabacherstraße in Fürth. In this way, three school classes had the opportunity to visit the Community Kitchen in Munich in November 2023 and learn all about sustainability in an interactive manner in the context of food rescue. The aim here was not simply to ensure that the students grasped the issues of food rescue and sustainability in theory, but to provide them with a real-life, hands-on experience. The Community Kitchen rescues food that would otherwise go to waste and uses this to produce delicious meals, with the organisation additionally committed to raising awareness of food waste.
