Copes with anything from a tough evening run to a demanding snow shoe trip or a gruelling cross-country ski session. The Stormcap eye makes sure to cover a greater area of the face including the nose.  

The head is a highly sensitive area and reacts quickly to the cold due to the sensory organs located there. Thermal protection is crucial at low temperatures. The X-Bionic Soma Stormcap Eye has a specially designed surface texture to keep the head pleasantly warm. Excess heat is allowed to escape in a controlled way. Extra perspiration immediately absorbed. The Balaclava Face guarantees optimal performance in extreme conditions.  

During recovery cold ambient air represents no overcooling risk factor because the warm air inside the InnerAirChannels form an insulating cushion. During recovery the cooling down process is interrupted by the lack of sweat. The air in both channles serves to warm and protect using the body`s own warmth to create a body aura: a protective shell that wards off the influence of cold. The 3D-BionocSphere System begins warming when sweat is absent.  

During activity sweat forms a line of moisture on the skin. Drops are absorbed by the SweatTraps and conducted into the Evaporation Surface Expander. The evaporation occurs in three ways activated by body heat; On the skin for cooling In the SweatTraps to process excess moisture and in the Evaporation Surface Expander where the excess is finally evaporated. SkinNODOR Technology Inhibits Bacterial growth and prevents unpleasant odour. Skin NODOR is a climate-active 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.Reduce sweating. But don`t prevent it!Don`t waste a drop: sweat is too precious to dispose of completely. The skin requires a certain level of moisture in order to cool down. Evaporation cooling only starts to drive the body temperature down when moisture on the skin evaporates. Conventional functional underwear design has tended to ignore this vital fact by absorbing moisture completely and keeping the body as dry as possible. Big Mistake. Dry skin may feel good but it lacks the ability to cool naturally.

Xbionic headgear is packed with technology to keep you cool when sweating and warm when you stop. Technology is zoned for maximum effect.

  • High Insulation Zones A great deal of heat is released through the upper part of the head. Extremely thick insluation zones in this area provide optimal climate management.
  • 3D-BionicSphere System on the forehead. As long as the body sweats it needs constant cooling to continue working effectively regardless of outdoor temperature. The 3D-BionicSphere System leaves a thin film of sweat on the forehead that evaporates and directly cools the skin.
  • Sweat-Traps trap perspiration and wick it to the outside where it evaporates. The insulation kicks in when you stop sweating to rpevent loss of body heat and undercooling.
  • Neck SweatTraps The exopsed and sweat intensive neck is protected against cold while the complex 3D structure leads excess sweat to evaporation.
  • ExpansionNeck The accordion principle of the ExpansionRibs provide high isolation: turning and bending the neck a system of chambers and channels unfold to provide insluation by storing warm air inside.

  • Fabric Specification: Skin NODOR

Skin NODOR is a particularly soft new yarn with exceptional temperature optimizing properties. It features a polymeric matrix incorporating a bacteriostatic agent that will not transfer to the skin. Excessive growth of bacteria on the skin and in clothing can cause unpleasant odor. Skin NODOR helps maintain the skin`s natural bacterial environment i.e. Skin NODOR has a bacteriostatic effect.

Skin NODOR works thanks to the continual reaction of ions within the fiber. This effectively inhibits the activity of microorganisms responsible for the build-up of bacteria and odor. The unique bacteriostatic ingredient in the polymer matrix prevents allergic reactions. It is an integral component of the fiber rather than merely coating the surface meaning the ingredient is not transferred to the skin.

Skin NODOR is an especially robust and long-wearing fabric that offers protection from microbial contamination. Even after repeated washing it does not lose its bacteriostatic properties retaining them for the entire life of the item of clothing.Skin NODOR incorporates a special inorganic anti-bacterial ingredient. This feature effectively retards the growth of the two most important types of bacteria: Gram-positive (Staphylococcus Aureus) and Gram-negative (K. Pneumonia). Because Skin NODOR is not bactericidal (i.e. it doesn’t kill bacteria) it does not destroy the natural bacterial environment of healthy skin.Products made with Skin NODOR are unbelievably soft and extremely comfortable. The supple micro-fiber hugs the body adapting to any shape. This guarantees optimal fit.
