Nike recently unveiled its new exclusive Nike Pro Collection, which consists of garments made using AeroAdapt technology. This technology consists of invention of new material designed to keep the athletes at their optimal temperature so that sweating, overheating or getting chilled doesn’t interfere with a workout.
In a normal apparel, air flow decreases as a person sweats as fabric becomes saturated; but, with Nike AeroAdapt it increases. The technology works in such a way that the moment AeroAdapt senses sweat, the material’s moisture reactive yarns open the fabric to release body heat and let air in. The wetter the material gets, the more it opens. As the moisture evaporates, the vents close to trap body heat, helping to prevent the athlete from feeling chilled or staying wet during a warm up or cool down.
When wet, the yarns contract to allow air flow and the fabric appears crinkled and raised. When dry, the fabric appears flat and the yarns are in straight, horizontal lines. Nike AeroAdapt debuted in five garments with Nike Pro Collection from Nike Training and two Nike football garments.
