Get ahead with a trick
The Trick® 4.0 tricks your brain: A special weave along the spinal column simulates overheating of the body. The sensors transmit their observation along the spinal cord to the brain. The brain interprets the signals as a sign that the entire body is overheating. It kicks in sweat production although the body in fact is still near its optimal performance temperature. Even before the body overheats, it‘s cooled by sweat effectively and more quickly. The strain on physical systems is relieved. As a result, the brain triggers sweat production long before overheating can occur. Early sweating permits more effective cooling that sustains energy reserves.
The Trick® 4.0 Thermo regulation
THE TRICK® 4.0 is a new brilliant way to regulate the temperature of your body. Special structures on the spine trick the heat receptors and start to cool the body through perspiration much earlier. The result is that your body remains at the perfect temperature for longer.
The Thorny Devil that lives in the Australian desert with little water has developed a system of water transporting channels on its body. These channels transport water from moisture and fog to its mouth using capillary action. According to the fractal principle (self-replicating principle) of self-similarity the structures come up with decreasing scale. Thus the effectiveness of the water conducting structures increases at the same time. X-BIONIC® 4.0 developers translated this capillary effect to athletic apparel to strategically transport sweat to parts of the body in need of intense cooling.
The Bionic Model
But its cleverest way of withstanding the lethal heat is almost invisible. It has countless microscopic grooves along its skin. These attract water from the morning dew, hold it and then transport it straight to the animal’s mouth using capillary forces.
Special knit structures along the spine simulate the overheating of the body. As a result, the brain kicks in with early sweat production, even before the body overheats.
Early onset of sweating enables more effective cooling that protects power reserves.

3D Bionic Sphere® System with ThermoSyphon® technology
The ThermoSyphon® System splits in two and wraps around both sides of THE TRICK® 4.0. Thanks to the ThermoSyphon® warmth that comes from the
insulating function of THE TRICK® is cooled down as soon as sweat production begins. Overheating is effectively counteracted.

Thorny Devil Technology:
1. Sweat Transporter
Wrapping around the body, this system continuously transports excess sweat via channels to the zones where it can have the largest possible cooling effect on overheated muscles.
2. Sweat Collector
Where the body accumulates the most sweat, Sweat Collectors soak up the sweat and move it gradually through the thickened structures of the HydroPort yarn to
3. Sweat Transporters.
Sweat Distributor with Partialkompression® The combination of X-BIONIC® Partialkompression® and knit-in ridges collects excess sweat and allows it to evaporate over a broad area to provide extra cooling for heat-intensive muscle areas.
THE REVOLUTION IN TEMPERATURE REGULATION
With X-BIONIC 4.0, a new era of supersportswear begins, featuring the legendary, patented and award-winning X-BIONIC® 3D Bionic Sphere® System with ThermoSyphon® technology. Complex, precise 3D-structures in ultra-high-resolution RETINA® quality increase the evaporation area and are stable even under load. Y-structures accelerate the flow of warm, humid air through thermodynamics for maximum temperature regulation and best sweat management.
FUNCTIONAL WEAR AS PRECISE AS THE HUMAN EYE
The human retina is a miracle of evolution. With its millions of receptors, the multi-layered specialized nerve tissue inside the eye defines our visual perception of the world – and provides our brain with high-resolution data for orientation and bodily coordination. Now X-BIONIC® transfers this evolutionary achievement to the skin. The innovative RETINA® ultra-high-definition technology makes it possible to build a superior class of functional clothing for performance beyond anything ever achieved before.
Stabilize the optimum body temperature: 37 °C CCR-Technology
Only 3% of your energy available for your performance? Let us change that.
An overheated or undercooled body is not efficient. That’s why he himself makes sure that he always has the optimal to maintain a core body temperature of 37 °C. Depending on the weather, in extreme cold or heat, this may be efforts to bind enormous amounts of strength of the body. Up to 97% of its energy is used by the body according to scientific studies for his sweating management. That leaves only 3% energy for your sporting goal. So that you can also enjoy the valuable 97% for you, EFFEKTOR® 4.0 will help your body with a wide range of technologies, its primary goal being “ideal body core temperature” easier to reach. Intelligent surface structures and X-BIONIC® 4.0 Partialkompression® hold the autonomous temperature regulation function of the skin and of the blood. Effector relieves your body and can be thus unleashing enormous additional performance potential.

„Up to 97 % of their energy is consumed by endurance athletes. In extreme cases, to maintain their body temperature at an optimal 37 °C. Only 3% of the energy remains for their performance.“
EFFECTIVELY AVOID ODOURS: SKIN NODOR®
HIGHT-TECH DOWN TO THE SMALLEST ATOM
This special high-tech fiber offers function in the smallest molecule. It reduces bacterial growth and odor formation. Skin Nodor® is a climate-active nanofilament with an inorganic bacteriostatic active ingredient incorporated inside. Only through the slow release of ions, activated by body heat, Skin Nodor® unfolds its effect. The ions hinder the multiplication of microorganisms, at the same time protecting the sensitive ecosystem of the skin and excluding allergic reactions. Skin Nodor® is particularly soft and breathable and ensures maximum comfort.
X-BIONIC® THE TRICK® has been rewarded internationally for:
Degree of innovation, outstanding design quality, choice of materials, workmanship, functionality and ergonomics.
