The SportHG® differential factor, apart from its modified Climatherm® polyester and its seamless production system, is the use of carbon fiber in many of its models. The carbon is introduced into the cloth and increases the athlete's performance without using any external complement. This revolutionary textile technology is the future of sports practice, which SportHG® becomes a reality of the present.
A world dominated by static electricity
In the 21st century, the technological revolution has made our environments constantly altered by the static electricity of the environment.
The result of all this is a human organism totally exposed to the electromagnetic fields and to its own energy, thus generating a good amount of static electricity that does not dissipate and directly affects the physical performance of the user, especially when it is in sports activity.
Effects of static electricity on the body
In general, the user experiences its effect in small electric shocks when touching a loaded object.
Naturally, muscles are connected to the brain through the neurons of the nervous system, so they can constantly send information about their state.
The nervous system works by bioelectricity, and some cells are able to generate those small electrical charges. Thus, each muscle tells the brain its level of fatigue, whether it needs more glucose and energy, more blood circulation, more heartbeat or even if it needs to use lactic acid reserves because it is in a limit situation.
The static electricity from the medium or from the synthetic materials totally alters this connection, directly affecting the performance of the muscle and its level of fatigue.
The body is less able to know the thermal state of its muscles and organs, causing a deficient response of the blood circulation and the needs of the muscles.
Characteristics of carbon fiber
Carbon fiber is a yarn with unique technical characteristics, composed of a continuous filament of conductive material based on active carbon and textile fibers. The conductive material manages to dissipate static electricity and eliminate it completely, to prevent any resulting alteration in the body.
Carbon fiber prevents any negative reaction in muscular contractility, reduces up to 4 beats per minute and eliminates the feelings of fatigue, tingling and itching caused by the alteration of the circulatory system.
In addition, the carbon fiber is equally protective against UVA and antibacterial rays, acting as a shield. It also adds an extra point in the thermal sensation, which helps protect the muscle even more. Carbon has a high durability, maintaining its effects for a long time.
The elimination of any type of alteration in the nervous and circulatory systems results in a quantifiable increase of the physical performance of the athlete.
It reduces up to 4 beats per minute, which in a period of 4 hours becomes a reduction of more than 1000 beats.
The variation of temperature in the organism is three times smaller than when a garment 100% composed of polyester is used.
The need for oxygen decreases three liters per minute and respiratory rate is reduced.
Muscle fatigue and the risk of micro-fractures or injury to the walls of muscle tissue are reduced.
It increases the speed of cellular recovery, especially in muscle tissue, thus shortening post-exercise recovery times.
Uses and practices
The carbon fiber is positive for the whole organism in any situation that is found, although it is especially useful when it is subjected to physical activity, by the special stimulation of the nervous and circulatory systems during these practices.
SportHG® incorporates carbon fiber in most of its technical meshes. Together with the Active differentiated pressure system, it increases performance in lower-leg muscles and reduces injuries and cramps, making it perfect for sports and fitness. Likewise, the brand introduces the carbon fiber in the back and forearms of some of their technical shirts, to reduce fatigue and possible pain from the injuries in those areas. The rapid recovery and reduction of injuries are well appreciated by users of any type of sport.
Its advantages have been experienced by ultradistance runners, where the muscle is subjected to a lot of pressure over long periods of time. The decreasing in oxygen need and beats is especially positive in long exercises, when the reduction amounts to tens of liters and thousands of beats.
Likewise, incorporating carbon fiber into sensitive areas such as ischia or calf muscles achieves good results in many other sports, such as tennis, fitness, climbing or motorcycling, where some muscle areas are more sensitive than others.
