High compression. Not everyone has the same calf circumference. X‐Bionic Effektor Competition consider this and offer different calf sizes for each foot size. With high compression you get the maximum performance during a race. The Partial Kompression helps your calf to cool down even during a tough run. The perfect sock for long competitions.
Skin Nodor is a climate-activated nano-filament which incorporates an inorganic, bacteriostatic ingredient in its interior. The gradual release of ions, which are activated by body heat, is the key to the effectiveness of Skin Nodor. These ions inhibit the growth of microorganisms rather than eliminating them outright, thus preserving the delicate balance of the skin‘s ecosystem. In other words, Skin Nodor is bacteriostatic (i.e. it inhibits bacterial growth), rather than bactericidal (bacteria-killing). Therefore, allergic reactions do not occur. Skin Nodor is especially soft and breathable and provides superior fit.
A lightweight, pH neutral, hypoallergenic fibre. Reduces the accumulation of germs and bacteria.
Impact-absorbing, hollow-core fibres for reducing pressure and impact thanks to enclosed air chambers.
X-Socks positioned the Air-Conditioning Channel under the arch of the foot, the area that normally does not touch the ground. It begins there and then moves along the foot up to the cuff. Covering only 30 % of the skin’s surface, it is constructed using a fine-knit mesh, so with every step, moist air is pumped out of the shoe and fresh air is drawn back in. An optimal air circulation system for the foot is now a reality: fresh air can even be circulated within a snug-fitting shoe.
Traverse AirFlow Channel System
The three-channel cross-ventilation system helps conduct warmth and moisture into the Air-Conditioning Channel.
AirFlow Ankle Pads
To protect the exposed ankle, X-Socks developed high-performance paddings. The crescent-moon-shaped alignment of the pads offers the best possible protection without affecting the ventilation ability of the AirCondtioning Channel.
The feet depend on the fine-tuned interaction of tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. One careless step can be enough to destroy this experienced team. Therefore the ankles require extra protection without inhibiting the foot’s freedom. This is why X-Socks invented the X-Cross Bandage. It is a cross ankle bandage knitted from an elastic material, which stabilises the ankle and optimally supports the foot’s function without limiting the freedom of movement.
Anatomically Shaped Effektor Footbed
The soles of the feet are covered by a particularly dense network of sensory receptors. As demonstrated very impressively by the reflexes stimulated when somebody tickles them. X-Bionic socks with Effektor-Technology use these natural skin sensory functions on the soles of the feet and enhance them in a unique way. A controlled stimulus intensity is induced partly by compression above the stimulus threshold. The stimulation of partial areas generates a continuous stream of specific information which tells the brain to send messengers. These messengers play an essential role in the interaction of cells within an organism. They control the body's metabolic processes.
X-Bionic Partial Kompression
Partial Kompression by X-Bionic utilises the advantages of compression without neglecting to cool. During sports activities, body warmth is created. In extreme situations up to 1,200 watts worth. Up to 90 % of this is released by the athlete from the skin to maintain a body temperate of 37 °C. X-Bionic Partial Kompression applies targeted pressure on 1 mm wide ridges. Left and right of the ridge is a compression-free area where compression could have a negative effect on blood circulation to the skin. In this way, the blood flow through veins and capillaries remain unimpeded. Partial Kompression uses the skin as a surface for cooling and, thus, can take advantage of the body’s personal micro-climate for optimising performance.
