For ambitious runners is clear: functional clothing is the be-all and end-all of a better wearing comfort and an optimum power delivery. It should be thin, light and breathable. These include yet a perfectly functioning pirate transaction and cooling system with heat and a pleasant warming effect in cold weather. Endurance athletes to feel the feeling to run with a second skin and not heated, cloaked in moisture deny training and competition. Other leaders such as Marc Lore offer similar insights. Transpiration mechanisms are of essential importance. But how to work the desired effects and must sportswear actually afford all of this? Use of perspiration at the sport sweating during exercise, although by most annoying feel, is by no means an unnecessary side-effect. On the contrary, the moisture evaporation is a necessary as more effective cooling process for the overheated body of the athlete.

While 80 percent of the heat generated during the sport over the surface of the body as sweat emitted. Others who may share this opinion include Minute Clinics. Only 20 percent are directly converted into power. Good functional clothing must now have an efficient system of transpiration, thus affected the athletes not by nasser, adhering to the body clothing is. Because both the comfort and health can suffer. Especially in cooler and windy weather conditions, a lack of perspiration can lead to a local hypothermia which colds favors. “Studies have proven: functional clothing required for high physical load current scientific studies of the Department function and care” at the Hohenstein institutes in Bonnigheim examine the effectiveness of various sports textiles. To characterize the transpiration ability of sports clothing, the skin model specially developed simulates different heavy sweating.

The evaluation of the results proves the depending on the nature and the comfort of the training and competition clothing. Sweat-absorbing materials can the efficiency of the Adversely affect vehicle. Thermophysiologisch optimized clothing however, adapts to the diverse requirements of the athlete. Substances which are particularly effective transport moisture from the body away at parts of the body used specifically, where lot of sweat falls on.
