NFC technology revolutionises the textiles sector within the sports industry.

Sport delights, appeals, and connects people to each other, worldwide. The latest product innovation from the RATHGEBER Group makes it possible for sports people, trainers, fans, sponsors, and others responsible within sport to connect with each other. How does that work? Put simply, smart-FLEXXLINE, the shirt emblem with integrated NFC technology and IDconnect, the web app for mobile end devices, makes it possible.

smart-FLEXXLINE – a NFC emblem that’s thoroughly impressive.

The smart-FLEXXLINE Emblem provides plenty of design options due to the flexibility of the material, the excellent structure design, and the state-of-the-art stitched appearance. 

Club logos can be readily shown as smart-FLEXXLINE emblems. This environmentally-friendly material has extremely fine surface structures and quality printing inks.

The NFC chip is directly integrated into the emblem in a special production process. The particular production process ensures a high degree of functionality, a pleasing design, and a product that is readily recognisable.

A special adhesive enables long-lasting, consistent bonding of the NFC emblem to textiles. Alternatively, the NFC emblem can also be stitched directly onto textiles..
