Walero, based in Cambridge – Europe’s technology hub – is a company that is constantly striving to supply athletes with the most technologically advanced apparel possible. Not willing to accept the norm, Walero uses science to challenge the status quo and push the limits of what’s available to athletes around the world.
Fiona James (Owner, Founder and racing driver) has never accepted ‘okay’, always striving for more. With her background at the highest levels of equestrianism, having fielded several horses at international right up to Olympic level, she is only too accustomed pushing the limits and using technology to find that next 0.01s, seeking that next incremental gain.
Walero’s first range, our temperature regulating baselayers, comes from that desire to not just accept what is available in the market. Sat in her Praga R1, strapped in and ready to go, Fiona was already being affected by the heat given off by her car, the elements and inadvertently insulating safety wear that she was wearing. So, she set herself the challenge: to find a solution heat stress suffered by drivers. From this, Walero was born.
“When central body temperature reaches or exceeds 37°C, the driver may experience muscle fatigue, lapses of concentration and even loss of consciousness. In cases of intense heat, the wearing of a cooling garment could help to keep the central body temp below 39°C.”
Well, now there is a solution – Walero racing baselayers.
By using the same ‘Outlast’ technology used by NASA (yep, astronauts) our baselayers actively regulate your body’s core temperature to within safe levels. Reducing heat stress, fatigue and ultimately giving higher levels of performance through increased reaction times and concentration. Independent test results also show a reduction in heart rate and in perspiration, which can drop by up to 33%.
Times have changed.
Get rid of those ice packs down the race suit or ducting adding weight to your car and replace them with Walero. Put simply, the coolest part of your kit bag.
Get the edge.
