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.


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.
