BODYMAPPING

BODYMAPPING helps to analyze how your body regulates temperature and sweat during exercises. Through BODYMAPPING, adidas has identified different zones of heat and moisture release based on gender, body type and weather conditions. Using this information, adidas designs garments that meet the specific environmental demands of each particular sport – from a sweltering urban workout studio to a high mountain running trail.

 

climacool®

climacool® is a combination of performance fabrics, open mesh and ventilation channels that keep cool air flowing in and heat and sweat flowing out. You can stay dry, comfortable, and performing at your peak in even the most heated competition.

 

climalite®

climalite® is a fabric story that wicks and transports liquid sweat away from the skin to the outer fabric face for quick evaporation. climalite® thus enhances the body's natural temperature regulation functions. climalite® cotton gives you the soft hand feel of cotton, while enhancing the body’s natural temperature regulation functions.

 

climaproof®

climaproof® is breathable weather protection in even the harshest of wind, rain and storm conditions by acting as a barrier to these elements. At the same time it allows heat and sweat to escape through evaporation.

 

climawarm™

climawarm™ is lightweight, breathable insulation that keeps you dry and comfortable in cold weather conditions by using densely woven synthetic fibers to trap warm air close to the skin. While these fibers are dense enough to trap air, they are spaced far enough apart to easily allow heat-sapping sweat to escape through evaporation.

 

FLOWMAPPING

FLOWMAPPING describes a way of managing the intake and exhaust of air through specific zones in a way that maximizes cooling. Optimal vent location allows air to be delivered efficiently to key evaporative cooling zones. Optimal management of air flow from intake to exhaust maintains a supply of relatively cool, relatively dry air to the cooling zones. Effective FLOWMAPPING can increase hear loss by up to 30%.

 

FORMOTION™

FORMOTION™ garments use pre-shaped 3-D silhouettes that allow great freedom of movement while you exercise. Many features such as sculpted openings at collar, waistband, hem, arm, cuff and leg, combined with specific fabrics, constructions and ideal seam placement result in optimized fit and comfort. These products move with your body, never against it.

 

GORE-TEX® ACTIVE SHELL

GORE-TEX® Active Shell laminates combine a lighter, thinner GORE-TEX® membrane with fine denier performance textiles to deliver the ultimate 3-layer solution for the Active consumer. On the liner side, a proprietary lamination technology integrates the backer textile directly into the GORE-TEX® membrane allowing for extreme breathability and excellent next to skin comfort. The streamlined laminate package, together with GORE’s scientific system level approach to garment design brings a completely new, never before seen level of comfort performance into the world of waterproof apparel.

 

GORE-TEX® PRO SHELL

GORE-TEX® Pro Shell is engineered with the most rugged, most breathable and durably waterproof and windproof fabrics. It meets the demands of outdoor professionals and serious enthusiasts so it is the optimum solution for outerwear to use under extreme tough conditions.

PrimaLoft

PrimaLoft insulation products offer superior performance for high quality cold-weather gear. PrimaLoft is incredibly solft, lightweight, breathable with excellent water repellency so you remain dry, warm and comfortable-even under the most extreme conditions.

 

TECHFIT™ adiPower POWERWEB
