A new partner for Resistex brand, skilled in the production of high technical yarns and belonging to the company Tecnofilati Srl – part of Abati Group. We are talking about BASE, a sports clothing brand for Pade, born from ad idea of the entrapreneur Fabio Giudici, by joining two passions: fashion and sport.

What is it padel?

Padel is a racquet sport. It is different from the sport known in the US and Canada as paddle tennis.

Padel is typically played in doubles on an enclosed court roughly 25% smaller than the size of a tennis court. Scoring is the same as normal tennis and the balls used are similar but with a little less pressure. The main differences are that the court has walls and the balls can be played off them in a similar way as in the game of squash and that solid, stringless bats are used. The height of the ball being served must be at or below the waist level.

Padel is not to be confused with platform tennis, a winter and summer sport typically played at country clubs in the US and Canada, with courts heated from below to eliminate snow and water. The court, rules and styles of play are very different.

All the clothes realised by Padel Base Milano are 100% made in Italy: all the textile are realised in Lombardy. But what makes unique Base, is the choice of the yarn: a a technical one based on Carbon and produced by Tecnofilati Srl. Because of its conductivity, the fiber absorbs and disperses electric charges accumulated from the environment or during physical exercise. Moreover It speeds up the evaporation process, slows down the build-up of skin moisture and keeps the body at constant temperature.

Resistex Carbon Yarn: the secret performance of Base Padel Milano

Now let’s go in depth to better discover the main features of Resistex Carbon yarn related to the sportsworld, through physical tests that show how this yarn can really make the difference.

Physical Tests

Numerous tests in collaboration with Dr. David Susta, Scientific Director of the Development Training Centre in Co-mo, have compared the jersey Resistex® Carbon to other polyester jerseys, worn by a group of athletes during a workout in a temperature and humidity controlled environment. The results shown that the increase of body tem-perature in Resistex® Carbon jersey was three times lower: that allows to save 3 liters per minute, increasing resistance and respiratory quotient.

The heart rate of athletes that were wearing Resistex® Carbon was lower than 4 beats per minute: in a 4 hours run this is translated into 1.000 heartbeats less than normal. The last benefit is related to the concentration of lactic acid in capillar blood: the result is 12% lower in the athletes who wore jersey made with Resistex® Carbon.

Beyond the physical prowess, the competitive motivations and the ability to analyze competitive situations, the right yarn can also make the difference. It is in fact shown that Resistex® Carbon increases the technical performance of sportswear, guaranteeing muscular hold protection for the athlete against the external environment.

Especially in high temperatures and resistance tests, the conductivity of the Resistex® Carbon yarn stabilizes the external environment, favoring athletic performance over the medium to long term, if compared to adversaries wearing a fabric without those properties.A physical test performed over a period of thirty minutes, with athletes wearing a shirt containing Resistex® Carbon yarn, shows that at the 15th minute and at the 30th minute, the athlete’s metabolic energy presents a growth index of yield, which goes from 24.68% to 24.93% and indicates that the muscular system can transform heat into mechanical energy

Let’s summarise the main feature of Resistex Carbon yarn in a infographic:

And now we show you all the great past and present athlets from soccer that chose to pass to Padel discipline. To practice it each one chose also the performances of Resistex Carbon yarn, the fiber which composes the clothes of the Italian brand BASE Padel Milano. Athletes belonging to the highest level: Alessandro Billy Costacurta, Esteban Cambiasso, Nicola Amoruso, Mark Iuliano, Nicola Legrottaglie, Ferri, Stefano Eranio, Beppe Bergomi, Franco Baresi, …
