CARBON

Hi-tech yarn

Resistex® Carbon is a yarn by the unique technical characte- ristics, obtained by the union of textile fibers with a continuo- us filament of conductive material based on active carbon.

Features

HIGH PERFORMANCE

073_16_0005_carbon_performance

Because during physical activity it lowers the concentrations of lactic acid, improving the circulation of the blood and oxygenates the cells.

NATURAL

073_16_0012_bioceramic_nature

100% natural, non-toxic and does not contain chemicals.

REFLECTIVE

073_16_0004_carbon_reflect

Because it protects the body from absorbing static energy, electrosmog and UV rays.

ANTISTATIC

073_16_0008_carbon_antistatic

Because of its conductivity, the fiber absorbs and disperses electric charges accumulated from the environment or during physical exercise.

BACTERIOSTATIC

073_16_0007_carbon_bacters

Because it respects the skin and protects it from bacteria and pollutant dusts. Eliminating the risk of annoying allergies.

HEAT REGULATING AND HEAT TRANSFER

073_16_0006_carbon_heat

Because it speeds up the evaporation process of perspiration, slow down the formation of humidity on the skin and keeps the temperature constant.

Resistex® Carbon. Increase your performance

It is shown that Resistex® Carbon increases the efficiency of technical sportswear increasing muscular performances of the athlete. Resistex® Carbon is high performance, in particular, in disciplines that require prolonged physical effort over time and under high temperature ambient conditions. The performance of the athlete, intended as the percentage of metabolic energy that the muscular system is able to transform into mechanical energy, remains constant and even tends to grow during the thirty minutes of effort wearing the shirt Resistex® Carbon;

in particular it is observed a performance of 24.68% at 15 minutes against one of 24.93% at the end of 30 minutes.

On the contrary, by wearing a jersey in total polyester, the performance percentage tends to diminish over time during the exercise. So Resistex® Carbon delays the onset of fatigue during exercise.

Static protection

Extensive studies in the field of ESD (Electro Static Discharge), have shown that the problem of controlling static electricity and electric fields variables, refer to any type of environment. The human organism is affected by the presence of these natural phenomena.

In fact, the electrical charges that are dispersed in our body are responsible for numerous adverse effects. Resistex® Carbon prevent the discharge of electrical charges on the body, thus preventing muscle twitching, cramps, and fatigue.

Carbon improves the electric performance of human bodies by promoting blood circulation and the regular supply of oxygen to the cells.

The characteristics of high conductivity Resistex® Carbon also allow to improve the dispersion of moisture favoring sweat evaporation. The least moisture in contact with the skin, the greater is the sensation of wellbeing.

Test

Numerous tests have been ran in collaboration with Dr. David Susta, scientific director of the Centre for the Development of Training Como. The tests have compared the jersey Resistex® Carbon and other jerseys totally in polyester, worn by a group of athletes during a training done in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.

  • the increase in body temperature of the athletes resulted three times lower in those ones who wore Resistex® Carbon
  • respiratory parameters were better in people wearing Resistex® Carbon. For these athletes, the need for oxygen was lowered of 3 liters / minute, improving the respiratory quotient
  • the heart rate of the athletes who were wearing Resistex® Carbon was lower than 4 beats / minute respect the other ones. In a 4 hours run, this translates into about 1,000 heart beats less
  • it was also measured the concentration of lactic acid in capillary blood, with the result of about 12% less acid in those who trained wearing Resistex® Carbon.
