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.
Thorny Devil Technology
Sweat is energy – particularly when it evaporates where it has the maximum cooling effect. The only thing is – how does it get there? THE TRICK® does this. With an integral infrastructure programme. Patented Thorny Devil Technology collects and guides moisture through sweat collectors and sweat transporters to sweat distributors – precisely where athletes benefit most from the cooling effect of evaporation. Creating perfect conditions for maximum performance. Protected by Patent ZA 2011/01805
THE TRICK®: 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. Even before the body overheats, it's cooled by sweat effectively and more quickly. The strain on physical systems is relieved. RESULT: You have more energy for performance.
3D-BionicSphere® System at the tailbone: The sweat of the lower back area is conducted through the 3D-BionicSphere® System to the tailbone for evaporation. The SweatTraps® on the lower back are targeted specifically at catching sweat flowing toward the buttocks. This first phase, which often leads to friction sores, is interrupted before it can even begin.
ISO-Pad: Enables targeted insulation of individual body parts from a cold environment to protect the body from freezing in winter. This is how the optimised ISO-Pads retain more body heat, which is necessary to guarantee internal organ function and protect body parts which are vulnerable to cooling.
Two-Step 3D-BionicSphere® System: The high-tech knitting technology ensures optimal grip and climate comfort. The different ribs and surface constructions support and transport moisture as well as warmth.
X-BIONIC® Partial Kompression: A new benchmark in compression technology. Partial Kompression by X-BIONIC® utilises the advantages of compression without neglecting cooling.
AirConditioningSpot: The knee hollow perspires quickly and heavily. A fine, circular knitted fabric has been incorporated there. Perspiration dissipates and is pushed outward with the aid of body warmth without the risk of chilling.
Skin NODOR®: 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.
