WICK-ED COOL™

Stay Dry, Stay Cool, Stay Comfortable

Temperature-activated technology reacts to your Body Heat to achieve optimal comfort and performance.

 

KEY PERFORMANCE BENEFITS

FEEL DRY

▪ Dries 35% faster than non-Smart Temp treated fabric
▪ Less water condensation in fabric = no more after-exercise clamminess
▪ Reduced "chill" time after exercising

 

 

COOLER SKIN

Up to 2°C/2.6°F cooler skin temperature (depending on fabric weight) and improves natural evaporation for more cooling.

HeiQ Smart Temp Polymer fiber technology

 

 

COOLING EFFECT TRIGGERED BY RISING TEMPERATURE

Good, standard wicking and evaporation at room temperature (20°C/68°F).

High performance wicking and dynamic cooling & evaporation at 35°C/95°F).

Cooling effect of wicking at multiple temperatures

 

 

What's the difference between evaporation and cooling?

Cooling through evaporation is a natural process. The most common example is skin temperature reduction thanks to the evaporation of body perspiration. This is the one and only mechanism our body has to keep its 37°C core temperature, evaporating. The principle underlying evaporative cooling is the fact that water must absorb heat for it to change from a liquid to a vapor; when evaporation occurs, this heat is taken away from the wet surface.
