We have already seen the material that hardens upon impact. Now Adidas has made their Torino 2006 athletes wear a new tech suit. The strategic placement of the TPU power bands enhances spatial awareness and amplifies the natural movement and motion of a sprinter. The result is more efficient movement, greater comfort, amplified freedom and ultimately a faster run.
From Gizmag -> Adidas claims that an average 5.3% improvement in energy output and 1.1% faster sprint time was measured over 30 metres. Most importantly the testers registered a 1.3% reduction in oxygen consumption on test subjects wearing the new suit. A clear indication that the onset of fatigue is delayed.
With its shaped, three-dimensional engineering, the adidas Clima TechFit suit fits like a second skin, helping muscles work more powerfully and efficiently while maintaining your body at the optimum temperature using the Clima365 system and Powerweb technology.
