Support, stability and power - thanks to Effektor!
Wearing the new Effektor Running Power Shirt has been described as like wearing a second skin. It is packed with X-BIONIC's award-winning and patented technologies, such as the 3D-BionicSphere-System, which keeps you warm when you are cold, and cool when you are warm. But that is not all. For the Power Shirt heralds the dawn of a new era in compression clothing, with the launch of Effektor Technologie.
Effektor unleashes the potential that until now seemed to be unrealistic - limits of muscle coordination, of body temperature regulation, heart rate, endurance, recovery time, lactate build-up and transmission of stimuli along nerve pathways. The key - Partial Kompression, which reduces muscle oscillations, and improves the supply not only of oxygen but also of nutrients to your muscles, enabling quicker recovery.
During sport 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 1mm 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 microclimate for optimising performance.
Wearing X-BIONIC products with Effektor Technologie, compared with standard compression clothing, could give you:
" 50% less build up of heat
" Up to 10% greater endurance
" Lower heart rate by 2.4 beats per minute
" 7% less lactate build up
" 20% faster recovery
The X-BIONIC Ladies Effektor Running Power Shirt also incorporates other new technologies specific to women, such as additional support and isolating zones Cohesion Wrap Technology.
3D-BionicSphere System in the chest area
Without giving the body the impression that it is getting cold, fresh air from the 3D-BionicSphere System in the chest area cools down the body temperature. The air is tempered inside the ducts, working like a sluice. Hot, moist air is disposed of using the dynamics of body warmth and then replaced with new fresh air.
Cohesion Wrap Technology
With its Vicarious Connective Tissue, this new technology supports and stabilises areas of the female body with weak connective tissue. It provides, from the outside, what female connective tissue is lacking on the inside: stability. The compression and special zoned structure around the abdominal region mean less lactate and metabolic waste can penetrate tissues. Key benefits of this technology, therefore, are support and stability, improved metabolism and breakdown of metabolic waste, support for lymphatic flow, reduced vibration and decreased build-up of cellulite.
X-BIONIC Partial Kompression
A new benchmark in compression technology, Partial Kompression by X-BIONIC utilises the advantages of compression without neglecting cooling.
Supporting and Isolating Area
With Effektor Supporting and Isolating Area, breasts are protected fully during athletic activities. No-show-through material steadies the entire breast area and reliably absorbs movement and impacts.
This zone supports the breasts from underneath and provides ventilation and optimal moisture management here.
Designed for large underarm areas to prevent dripping and to cool more effectively.
Heat Transfer Zone
The extremely fine mesh between the compression ridges allows heat to be optimally dissipated during physical exertion.
3D-BionicSphere System on the back
Varying amounts of heat are produced in different regions of the body, with that form the chest and back being particularly high due to the need to protect vital internal organs. The 3D-BionicSphere System leaves a thin film of moisture on the skin with the sensation of dampness. SweatTraps then transport excess sweat, allow it to evaporate, and then dispose of it via thermal dynamics. Remaining is only a comfortable, thin, cooling layer of moisture. Of course, no sweat - no cooling. In colder temperatures, during rest and recovery phases, the system switches to insulation mode.
