Q36.5 Termic skinsuit is a form of cutting-edge homage to this historical moment and attitude, a modern conception of Equipment for specific training. During the years winter training has undertook a deep direction in high intensity fast rides shifting the demands of cyclist. The Termic Skinsuit is a lightweight piece of Equipment, with a reducted low volume and freedom of movement, thanks to a Fully Pre-Shape cut that is completely ergonomic, guiding an economical pedaling action. The exploitation of proprietary fabrics and calibrated Body Mapping creates an unique hermetic suit which exalts its function. The deep reason to produce an unique piece of winter Equipment is to reach more functionality, due to the ergonomic cut, and reduction of heat loss, thanks to the combination of Jacket and Long Salopette. It’s constructed entirely from its proprietary Hybrid Air Protection fabric, an innovative completely new two layers fabric, which incorporate a ribbed fleece and high-density polyamide woven fabric for the outer part with a specific water resistance treatment (the UF Hybrid Shell) and for the inner part we introduce our new UF Air Insulation, a lofted knitted jacquard brushed with incredible moisture vapor management and thermal capabilities. The result is a high thermal protection in low volume, which can adapt to the different demands of high intensity winter training.
A pre-shape fit garment is cut to have the least resistance to the athlete’s body when in the position it assumes while riding. Riders will notice that pre-shaped garments will, when hung unworn from a hanger, naturally fall towards a riding position. This means that while the wearer may feel a minor degree of strain or notice small creases in the garment when standing upright and not on the bike he or she will be most comfortable and aerodynamic and have greatest ease of motion when riding.
The introduction of the silver thread may be understood as a further fine-tuning of the fabric’s original raison d’être in which the extraordinary natural properties of this material are carefully exploited in a performance-wear context. When activity becomes intense and the body emits an excess of heat and moisture with must be dealt with through conduction, evaporation and convection, the fabric instead benefits from silver’s high thermal conductivity. The pure silver thread’s greatest performance advantage is not given by its anti-bacterial or conductive qualities but by it qualities of protection from electrostatic and magnetic interference (the so-called “electrosmog” pollution of electromagnetic radiation resulting from wireless technology and mains electricity). The protection offered by the silver thread from these waves allow the active muscles to operate with less “distractions”, further refining the ergogenic function of Q36.5’s high density woven fabrics.
An extension of the Ergogenic pattern concept Vectorial Elasticity particularly refers to the intelligent alignment of panels so that the ergogenic qualities of the fabric (modulus force, elastic return and stretch) are orientated in function of the direction of the pedalling action conferring a: stabilization of fibres which may be disturbed by bumps and other irregularities in the road surface; superior circulation thanks to the pump effect of the pressure applied to musculature; improvement in proprioception thanks to the uniform sensation of ‘second skin’ given by the material. The elasticity of the fabric along the warp’s vector is instead orientated to operate with least resistance on the downward motion of the foot and with greatest return during the upward motion of the foot, thus reducing fatigue and guiding an economical pedalling action.
