X-BIONIC® Effektor Long Sleeve Power Shirt - Step beyond the current limits of physics? All clear ahead! Effektor™ Running Powershirt®. The blood in your arms have a tough road back to your heart – long, against the force of gravity and against the centrifugal force created by your arm movement. The Effektor™ Running Powershirt® therefore not only has performance-enhancing X-Bionic® partial compression in the entire upper body, but it also increases the compression applied to the arms. The return of venous blood has an easier time of it, and your cardiovascular system saves energy. You gain even more power with the large 3D-BionicSphere® system on the back. It relieves your body’s own need for temperature management. Neural-Response-Bandages on the elbows provide for quicker, more precise muscular response.
Effektor unleashes the potential that until now seemed to be unrealistic – limits of muscle coordination, of body temperature regulation, heart rate, endurance, recovery time, lactate build-up and transmission of stimuli along nerve pathways. The key – Partial Kompression, which reduces muscle oscillations, and improves the supply not only of oxygen but also of nutrients to your muscles, enabling quicker recovery.
During sport 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 1mm 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 microclimate for optimizing performance.
X Bionic are the manufacturers of compression base layers, pants, shorts, and t-shirts. Whether you're skiing, climbing, running or cycling, your body is working hard to regulate itself to a constant 98.6° F. That's when award-winning X-Bionic® Functional Sportswear comes in. Delivering high performing, fully functional workout apparel is what they do best. As leaders within the industry, X-Bionic® Functional Sportswear was developed by leading European textile scientists who have engineered proprietary fibres’ and fabric constructions to cool you when you're sweating and keep you warm when it's cold.
Wearing the new Effektor Running Power Shirt has been described as like wearing a second skin. It is packed with X-BIONIC’s award-winning and patented technologies, such as the 3D-BionicSphere-System, which keeps you warm when you are cold, and cool when you are warm.
