Football Kit Technology Explained
NOTTINGHAM, England, December 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
When it comes to football kits they often incorporate many different technologies to ensure that the player is comfortable and performs to their best. However, each brand has their own technologies, so SportsDirect.com are on hand to give a low down on the top brands and their unique insulating and cooling fabrics.
Football shirts and base layers need to have certain technologies in order to keep the player cool, warm, dry and comfortable - depending on the weather when they are training or competing in a match. As we have now hit the Autumn/Winter season base layers are an essential item to the training kit and it's important that they keep the heat in, without causing the wearer to overheat.
Under Armour use ColdGear® technology in their base layers which aims to circulate heat through the inner layer, but simultaneously the outer layer battles with the elements to ensure that moisture is wicked away to leave the player comfortable and dry.
Similarly, Nike have Dri-Fit technology that also draws sweat away from the body when body temperature rises, and have recently introduced HyperCool technology that can been seen in the 2014 Brazil and France football shirts to ensure that players are kept cool under pressure.
adidas also have their own version of moisture wicking fabric in the form of ClimaCool. This can be found in the latest football shirts such as the Real Madrid Away Shirt 2013 2014 and, again, aims to keep the footballer dry, comfortable and focussed on the game.
However, when it is really cold outside a warmer base layer is essential and Sondico have incorporated Sondico Therm which aims to keep the warmth in and increase insulation when the weather and elements are particularly cold and bitter.
Although most of the technologies do have the same function it is important to know what they do and how they can benefit the footballer on the pitch.
