BIONIC ENERGIZER MK2 SHIRT LONG SLEEVES blk/wht
X-Bionic Energizer MK2 Shirt Long Sleeves Women’s Undershirt – black/white
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 X-BIONIC Energizer™ MK2 Shirt, 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 shirt anymore: a much larger 3D-BionicSphere® System, newly defined ventilation chambers, better joint protection.
3D Bionic Sphere® System - 50% larger evaporative surface
With the increase in size and anatomical fit, the 3D Bionic Sphere® System works even more effectively. In the same period of time as before, it can process more sweat, and it can store 8cm³ more air for insulation during recovery phases.
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.
The Air-Conditioning 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.
SweatTraps® - 40 cm² surface area for sweat transport
Since a lot of sweat is produced in the chest area, SweatTraps® are placed strategically all around the 3D-BionicSphere® System in order to speed the transport of moisture.
Better performance due to graduated compression that reduces muscle oscillations, supports muscles and joints and optimises nutrient supply.
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.
3D-BionicSphere® System on the back
Guarantees effective ventilation so moisture is quickly wicked and transported away. No sweat means insulating air pockets in the wavelike structure protect against cold.
SweatTraps® on the back
To make sure you don't waste one single drop of valuable sweat, the closely aligned rows of SweatTraps® now form the bottom of the 3D-BionicSphere® System on the back
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.
ShoulderPads™ - newly developed details
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.
Air Guides® 1 mm strong - improved air circulation
The Air-Conditioning Channel® is enveloped by the Air Guides® so that it can also function effectively under a second layer. The speed of evaporation is increased by multiples.
