Building muscle, losing weight, or improving endurance – with the Powershirt with Effektor Technology you’ll begin a new era of performance ability and achieve your fitness goals more quickly. The technology’s advantage: Partial Kompression, which only puts pressure on your muscles through the 1-mm-wide ridges, reducing muscle oscillations, and improves the supply not only of oxygen but also of nutrients to your muscles, enabling quicker recovery. The 3D-BionicSphere System on the chest and back as well as the AirConditioning Channels promote the evaporation of sweat with better air circulation. This cools your body even during the toughest workouts and hinders early-onset exhaustion.
3D-Bionic Sphere System
Leaves residual moisture on the skin that the body does not interpret as dampness. We have no sensors for sweat. We can only perceive sweat mechanically once drops form and begin to trickle down. Only at that point do we register “wet”. Sweat Traps absorb this moisture before it is felt, drawing it away to be evaporated and disposing of it through thermal dynamics. Only a thin film of moisture remains on the skin. Cooling is of course not possible without moisture.
The Air-Conditioning Channel is a ventilation system of channels that flow around the body, continuously carrying away moisture and warmth. This allows for fresh air circulation for more performance improvement.
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.
Effektor Technology recognises neural physiology as an extra boost to performance ability. With X-Bionic Partialkompression it exerts constant targeted pressure on the peripheral neurons and sets up a constant state of fight-or-flight. This constantly activated relationship to the nervous system enables an optimised muscular use and creates decisive performance advantages.
