The globally unique symbiosis of SpaceFrame™ Technology and symbionic™ membrane. The SymFrame™ Bike Jacket is the only jacket anywhere in the world with SpaceFrame™ Technology. It can “transport” sweat out of the jacket as vapour as well as sweat droplets through the symbionic™ membrane. The SpaceFrame™ Technology guarantees that moist air saturated with perspiration – and therefore unable to absorb and transport “new” sweat – is conducted out of the jacket, allowing “new” unsaturated air to be drawn in. This is the only way in which the process of targeted cooling can start all over again, thus enabling the body to “work” at its optimum performance temperature. A rain jacket without SpaceFrame™ Technology is unable to do this. A normal jacket, with a conventional membrane, is pressed next to the body either by its own weight or by the person carrying a backpack. This weight destabilizes the complicated temperatureregulating system (using sweat to cool by evaporation), and the sweat management system using the exchange of sweat saturated air with fresh air is destroyed.
 

Product details

 
  • AirConditioning Grids

    These air inlets further support the chimney effect of the ClimaSphere-System™, and at the same time easily allow excess perspiration to be released.

       
  • SpaceFrame™ Technology

    Thanks to specially placed SpaceFrame™ elements, which provide a defined air flow in selected areas inside the clothing, the ingenious patented air management system transports warm, moist air out of the clothing.
