The ground-breaking Thorny Devil Technology turns X-Bionic The Trick Running Pants into the champion of self-regulating cooling. The system integrating Sweat Collectors, Sweat Transporters and Sweat Distributor zones covers nearly the entire surface area. Using standards found in nature, excess sweat is collected on sweat-intensive areas via capillary action. The sweat is guided using a dense network of channels to those muscle areas that heat up more quickly. That enables an optimal cooling effect.
Skin Nodor is a climate-activated nano-filament which incorporates an inorganic, bacteriostatic ingredient in its interior. The gradual release of ions, which are activated by body heat, is the key to the effectiveness of Skin Nodor. These ions inhibit the growth of microorganisms rather than eliminating them outright, thus preserving the delicate balance of the skin‘s ecosystem. In other words, Skin Nodor is bacteriostatic (i.e. it inhibits bacterial growth), rather than bactericidal (bacteria-killing). Therefore, allergic reactions do not occur. Skin Nodor is especially soft and breathable and provides superior fit.
A lightweight, pH neutral, hypoallergenic fibre. Reduces the accumulation of germs and bacteria.
Normal thermoregulation during athletic activity follows defined rules: When the body temperature during activity climbs over a certain point, sensors in the back notify the brain via the spinal cord of the need for cooling. Only then is sweat produced to cool the already overheated body. With The Trick, the developers at X-Bionic have found a new and superior way to thermoregulate. Along an insulation zone on the spine, an overheating of the body is simulated, and the brain kicks in with early sweat production.
Thorny Devil Technology
Like a network of tiny canals, the sweat-transporting HydroPort yarn was developed using the precise principle of the Thorny Devil. The Thorny Devil Technology guides sweat directly to heat-intensive muscle areas. There, it evaporates for an optimal cooling effect.
X-Bionic Partial Kompression
Partial Kompression by X-Bionic utilises the advantages of compression without neglecting to cool. During sports activities, body warmth is created. In extreme situations up to 1,200 watts worth. Up to 90 % of this is released by the athlete from the skin to maintain a body temperate of 37 °C. X-Bionic Partial Kompression applies targeted pressure on 1 mm wide ridges. Left and right of the ridge is a compression-free area where compression could have a negative effect on blood circulation to the skin. In this way, the blood flow through veins and capillaries remain unimpeded. Partial Kompression uses the skin as a surface for cooling and, thus, can take advantage of the body’s personal micro-climate for optimising performance.
A knee can bend up to 160°: however, most pants can’t withstand this stress without being pulled thin and hence, resulting in a loss of functional insulation. In contrast, the accordionlike construction of the Expansion Ribs retains its insulating properties rather than losing them when the knee bends. A highly flexible system of chambers and channels spreads open with each movement, releasing the warm air stored inside.
The Neural-Response-Bandage exerts targeted pressure on the muscle attachment, prepares the receptors for action and improves the work of the muscles.
