Chilled legs sustain injuries easily. The X‑Bionic Leg PK-2 Energy Accumulator offers targeted protection from the cold because your muscles lose warmth differently in different areas. When pedalling the knee bends repeatedly. Traditional leg warmers spread thin with that movement. With Leg PK-2 Energy Accumulator the system works like an accordion with chambers and ducts that fold and unfold, allowing the ExpansionKnee to gain insulative attributes. At the same time, the X‑Bionic Partialkompression reduces muscle vibration and supports muscles and joints. That keeps legs even on freezing days powerful and optimally temperature-regulated.
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.
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.
A knee can bend up to 160°: however, most pants can’t withstand this stress without being pulled thin and hence, resulting in a loss of functional insulation. In contrast, the accordionlike construction of the Expansion Ribs retains its insulating properties rather than losing them when the knee bends. A highly flexible system of chambers and channels spreads open with each movement, releasing the warm air stored inside.
