Heat limits concentration and performance in sports. Scientific studies show that cooling can improve performance in sports up to 10% and also recovery is much better -  which becomes more and more a critical success factor for athletes. Most cooling apparel works with the sweat production of the user – a process which still requires energy. A different approach is active cooling by evaporative technologies which may have a higher impact. Especially in different cooling scenarios as precooling, dura-cooling as well as for recovery there are numerous scientific studies available which show the efficiency of cooling technologies in textiles for performance. Join the presentation and learn more about the different cooling scenarios, learn about pre-cooling, dura-cooling and recovery effects.
