The Confitex story starts back in 2013, when designer and endurance ski racer Frantisek Riha-Scott began exploring the potential of high-performance absorbent sports underwear to provide a competitive edge when he didn’t have time to take a toilet break during downhill races.
But having perfected his prototype absorbent underwear, conversations with friends and relatives drew his attention to a far wider market than a small group of top-level athletes. He quickly realised his invention would be life-changing for the one in three women and one in five men who live with light to medium urinary incontinence.
The Confitex story starts back in 2013 on the pure alpine snow slopes of New Zealand, when two young endurance ski racers came up with the ingenious idea of creating high-performance absorbent sports underwear to give them a competitive edge during downhill races. But they quickly realised that leakproof underwear would also be life-changing for the one in three women and one in five men who live with light to medium urinary incontinence.
And so, in 2015, Confitex was launched at New Zealand Fashion Week and made international headlines as the world’s first fashion-forward incontinence underwear range.
