Good news: Spyker gives you more power. Bad news: same goes for your opponent. The new X-Bionic Spyker reduces sweat but doesn’t eliminate it. High-performance athletes consume up to 97 % of their energy to control body temperature, according to scientific research from the University of Dortmund in Germany. Similar to the principle of calf packing, or cold leg compresses when you have a fever, special 3D structures of the patented 3D-BionicSphere System lead to a widespread dispersal of sweat on the surface of the skin. That promotes evaporative cooling, which saves energy. This natural turbo-charging effect gives you extra oomph for forward motion and transforms sweat into energy.
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.
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.
