Climachill™ keeps you cool with a meshlike fabric and titanium fibers that channel heat away from the body
Adidas Climachill is a fabric constructed to keep athletes cool and comfortable. The fibers of the material are woven with small, aluminum-silver dots that help to pull heat away from the wearer’s body as well as provide a cool, refreshing touch to the skin. Paired with mesh-like microfibers, the result is the SubZero flat yarn.
Adidas Climachill is strategically engineered to offer cooling and breathability in the areas where athletes need it most. In areas such as the back and forearms, you’ll find the aluminum dots, helping to conduct heat away from the body in places where you’re most vulnerable to sweat. Meanwhile, the microfiber construction allows for moisture to pass through almost as soon as it forms.
ClimaLite is a material developed for optimal humidity control. ClimaLite consists of 100% synthetic functional fibers. The goal is to bind the fluid that the body excretes in the form of sweat and to expel it as quickly as possible. In order for this process to work smoothly, the fabrics of the first layer must be worn so as to be close to the body.
ClimaCool® is a system (not a material!) Which, based on the Body Mapping process, optimizes Pulse Control and Thermal Control. In addition to humidity control, the main focus is on additional ventilation (compared to ClimaLite). Ventilation, in this case, means the internal circulation of air between clothing and skin. 3D mesh materials and a special seam construction are used for this purpose. Using the silver staple (x-static) or the application of 3M in the cool touch tape, an additional heat dissipation is achieved. The product is labeled ClimaCool if the following criteria are met: Body Mapping, Humidity Control, and Ventilation.
