Working up a sweat packs a host of benefits—there’s no denying that. However, overheating and tapping out is a real concern, even during the colder months. Fortunately, the right apparel can save you from a complete meltdown. And that’s exactly how the Under Armour Iso-chill collection could be one of your best workout assets.
What Is It?
The Under Armour Iso-chill microfibre technology is a total game changer. It made its debut in late 2019 as a replacement for CoolSwitch, a crystal technology that sends a cooling sensation back to the body once the garment tissue is activated by perspiration.
What’s the Difference Between Iso-chill and Coolswitch?
The key difference between Iso-chill and CoolSwitch is the introduction of the natural element Titanium Dioxide, which—unlike its predecessor—expels heat immediately from the body when touched. Yeah, you read that right: immediately!
How Does It Work?
Under Armour flattened out the fibres within their garments and added Titanium Dioxide. This allowed them to create a material that quickly pulls heat away from your skin—letting you work out for an extended period, at maximum capacity. The specially designed fibres lay flat against your skin to evenly disperse heat, literally providing a cooling sensation to the touch.
Why Should I Buy It?
As top competitors will know, it can take just a shift in minutes, seconds or even milliseconds to give you a competitive edge; to create a podium finish; to define who wins and who comes in second.
The Titanium Dioxide in the Iso-chill Collection absorbs UV energy and quickly moves heat away from the body. The exclusion of this concentrated heat allows athletes to increase their max-out time and increase output in any hot, high-pressure situation.
In short, you’ll be able to work out for longer thanks to this new tech.
