SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - January 21, 2010) - Agion® (, the worldwide leader in natural silver-based antimicrobial technologies and Cyberknit®, a leading manufacturer of performance fabric for sports, fitness and tactical markets announce their partnership to offer their complete line with Agion Active® technology, the first textile treatment to incorporate dual odor elimination capabilities.

Agion's base technology has been proven effective in over 100 million pairs of shoes, and Agion Active goes one step further by adding a new proprietary technology that pulls in environmental, ambient or absorbed odors like a vacuum and annihilates them, fighting odor both on and around the fabric. Cyberknit, who supplies material to brands such as Reebok, New Balance and Asics, is a recognized leader in performance fabrics.

To demonstrate the powerful combination, Agion and Cyberknit have partnered to create a treated shirt that will be used in Agion Active's "Stink at Nothing" ( consumer campaign. The campaign challenges consumers to test the odor elimination technology by pulling on the treated shirt and engaging in their favorite sport. The test shirt material is being manufactured in the U.S. by Cyberknit, and will be treated with Agion Active technology.

"Because of their outstanding reputation as manufacturers of high quality performance fabrics and their deep expertise with finishes, Cyberknit was a natural choice for us when we considered how to best incorporate Agion Active technology into apparel," said Paul Ford, CEO of Agion Technologies. "We are excited to take this first step in our partnership and look forward to developing other opportunities with Cyberknit."

"We are looking forward to the Agion Active consumer challenge," said Menachem Katz, president of Cyberknit. "We have created a performance fabric worthy of the technology and we are eager to see it in action. We are confident that our partnership with Agion will continue to grow as we reach out to outdoor sports, fitness and tactical markets."
