State of the art. Endurance athletes consume up to 97 % of their energy to control body temperature, scientists have found. This means more cooling will allow more performance. Inspired by the desert fox, or Fennec, whose shiny silver fur refl ects heat from the sun and the surroundings to allow it to survive in the hot desert, our X-BIONIC® by Fennec® Running Shirt integrates the revolutionary material xitanit™ It too is able to refl ect radiated heat because xitanit™ works like a heat shield. The Fennec® shirt is hot on the outside and stays cool on the inside. Dispersing of heat, the distribution and evaporation of sweat, as well as the Heatpipe® Construction are additional cooling technologies in the Fennec® Running Shirt.

Product details

 
  • 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.

  • SweatTraps®

    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.

  • 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.

  • Heat Reflector

       
  • Self-adjusting cuff (Shirt)

    Keeps the shirt from slipping up or constricting.

       
  • RodTypePaddings™

    Placed on the back, above and below the 3D-BionicSphere®-System, they ensure effective ventilation. Due to their special design they also work under pressure. Their great elasticity guarantees that the temperature-regulating woven design fits on the body perfectly.

       
  • Wüstenfuchs Technology

    The desert fox Fennec's shiny silver fur reflects heat. Also, the Fennec releases much of its body heat through its huge ears. This is the inspiration behind our X-BIONIC® Wüstenfuchs Technology. The exclusive XITANIT® material reflects heat pounding down at you while distributing sweat across your skin to achieve an effective cooling process.
