When it comes to delivering your best performance, your body needs more than just average comfort, support and protection. That’s why all of our next-to-skin base layers use the same technology developed for NASA (yep, astronauts!), which helps to actively stabilise your temperature, no matter how much the heat is on (or off!). How does it do that? Simply by incorporating super-intelligent microcapsules into the yarn of the fabric before it’s been woven.
These microcapsules contain a ‘phase change material’ that absorbs the heat energy above a certain temperature and gives it back to you below a certain temperature; helping to stabilise your body at 37 degrees and effectively reducing sweat production by up to 33%. This thermo-regulating technology means that no matter how intense the race conditions are, you’ll never feel too hot, nor too cold.
…And it doesn’t stop there. We’ve also added Envirotex to our clothing, which is a nontoxic, hospital-grade antimicrobial that’s 99.999% effective against many common bacteria as well as many fungal spores and viruses, keeping you fresher for longer.
Success has never smelled so sweet!
All this technology has been tried and tested by Outlast® over the years since it was released and there are several research papers available to support the various claims.
The US Olympic triathlon team even used it to improve their performance at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Further evidence was found during the last Golf Ryder Cup event when competitors faced rather undesirable weather conditions in bonny Scotland!
When you combine all of the above with a tailored, superior fit, flat-lock seams and super-soft fabric… it’s safe to say that Walero base layers are like no other. It comes as no surprise. They were engineered by drivers, for drivers.
