Humidity management 4.0
Building on the 3D BIONIC Sphere System, which has enjoyed great success for many years, ThermoSyphon redefines our promise to “cool you down, when you are sweating and warm you up when you are freezing”. Following X-BIONIC’s mission to “turn sweat into energy”, ThermoSyphon improves athletes’ performance using the power of thermodynamics and gravity. The technology consists of a highly complex network of tunnels and ducts, integrated into the textile, which serve a unique double function. During active phases, they guarantee even more efficient humidity management, dosing sweat intelligently and leading it to the correct areas for cooling. In rest, the innovative textile offers reliable insulation.
The cooling film of sweat on the skin supports the body’s thermoregulation. Excess sweat is absorbed by the Sweat Traps and transported outwards to evaporate. The sweat changes in aggregate state from liquid to gaseous in the channels of the patented 3D construct. The surplus humid-warm air is conducted upwards by the vapour pressure. The unique structure of the ThermoSyphon channels additionally facilitates this process.
