adidas recently launched their new cooling technology, Climachill, for the Spring and Summer of 2014 with David Beckham as feature model.
Climachill includes two key cooling features – SubZero flat yarn containing titanium throughout and 3D aluminum cooling spheres that cool the skin upon contact in strategic locations. Here is our World Exclusive review at the statement product from adidas Climachill range – the Climachill tee.
Using a simple crewneck look, the tee features highly reflective adidas stripes toward the front of the left should (an adidas first in terms of location), adidas logo on its chest and Climachill text on its back. Reflective elements are essential to training tops since many of us run early in the morning on at night.
Taping in a Solar Blue appears along the neckline and waistline of the stunning Solar Lime version of the Climachill tee for a nice touch that makes the shirt stand out from other bland training tops on the market.
The adidas Climachill tee fits true to size so we recommend getting it in whatever your normal t-shirt size is. If you are a bit on the muscular side, it should be noted that the shirt uses a contemporary, slimmer fit and will definitely show off your hard earned physique wherever you choose to wear it.
Our testers wore the adidas Climachill t-shirt during a warmer Spring days for training that including outdoors running followed by an indoor weightlifting workout. What we found was that the tee lives up to its billing as a lightweight top with superior sweat absorption to just about every other on the market in similar price ranges.
The Climachill shirt’s aluminum cooling spheres are the true differentiator for it though. From the first time you put it on, you can immediately feel their cooling effect on your upper back. What this might be likened to is placing a wet towel on your neck to cool down. Needless to say while training in the Climachill top in the heat, the cooling that the spheres provide feels wonderful. They’re almost like having a mini air conditioning unit on your upper back. We wish that they lined the entire shirt!
Climachill’s Footballing Future?
While adidas’ Climachill technology is currently limited to training products, we can definitely see the benefits of it being incorporating into the firm’s new football kits. With temperatures at the end of summer when major European leagues kick off still on the higher side, Climachill jerseys would definitely be a hit among soccer fans and players alike.
