X-Bionic Energizer MK2 Turtle Neck Shirt
- Compression - medium
- Insulation - warm
Reduce sweat, don't prevent it. For automobile owners, the "MK" marking system may just mean a simple model number. For the team of developers, though, these two letters alone represent months or even years of painstaking work and innumerable tests. The strategic focus is not just the design, but rather is more performance enhancements of the product: More horsepower, larger capacity, better chassis. In the end, of course, it's all about higher speeds and better safety. That's exactly the philosophy of X-Bionic®. Superior products, like the Bionic Energizer™, aren't just replaced, rather they are constantly improved. Our Swiss textile engineers needed months and months in the research laboratory together with our performance athletes. They focused mostly on the athlete, not on the product. How can we better support athletes in their endeavours? In the end, you could hardly recognize the Bionic Energizer™ anymore: a much larger 3D-BionicSphere® System, newly defined ventilation chambers, better joint protection.
Without giving the body the impression that it is getting cold, fresh air from the 3D-BionicSphere System in chest and back area cools down the body temperature. The air is tempered inside the ducts, working like a sluice. Hot, moist air is disposed of using the dynamics of body warmth and then replaced with new fresh air. Sweating is the natural cooling system of our organism. So X-Bionic puts the focus on keeping a thin sweat film on the skin during the active phase and creating a warming zone around the body during recovery.
ShoulderPads™: Every single honeycomb chamber of the newly developed ShoulderPads™ construction stores warm air for insulation. Simultaneously, they insulate the shoulder joint without limiting its range of motion.
SweatTraps®: Trap perspiration before you start to feel it. Sweat is wicked away so it can evaporate using heat dynamics. A film of perspiration - too thin to be noticeable - is left behind to cool the skin.
AirConditioning Channel®: The AirConditioning Channel® is a ventilation system of channels that flow around the body, continuously carrying away moisture and warmth. It allows air to flow to body regions not normally accessible by fresh air circulation.
AirGuides™ 1 mm strong - improved air circulation: The AirConditioning Channel® is enveloped by the AirGuides™ so that it can also function effectively under a second layer. The speed of evaporation is increased by multiples.
AirComplex-Zone - increased insulation to 72 cm²: At the solar plexus, directly under the 12th thoracic vertebra, important nerve fibres come together and receive signals that influence one's entire well-being. The Bionic Energizer™ MK2 protects this sensitive area with special channels. Warm air enclosed there optimally insulates in the cold. The system's structure processes excess sweat from physical activity and provides a nice, cool feeling all over.
ExpansionRibs™: The knitted fabric of the ExpansionRibs™ folds apart based on the accordion principle, insuring that cold doesn‘t cool down the elbows. Even when sharply bent, the insulating effect is maintained through warm air stored in the interior. The flexibility of the ExpansionRibs™ and the elasticity of the yarn allow a frictionless freedom of movement.
Self-adjusting cuff: Keeps the shirt from slipping up or constricting.
X-Impact Technology™: Better performance due to graduated compression that reduces muscle oscillations, supports muscles and joints and optimises nutrient supply.
The SkinNODOR® material consists of silver ions activated by body heat. They reduce bacterial growth and prevent unpleasant odor. The SkinNODOR® material is especially soft, breathable and provides superior fit.
Material: 92% polyamide, 5% elastane, 3% polypropylene
