The winter training and competition season presents a vastly different set of challenges to those at other times of the year. Apart from the physical and psychological impacts that negatively affect performance, there’s also the increased likelihood of injury due to reduced blood flow to the extremities, muscles and connective tissues.
At KYMIRA our approach extends far beyond merely looking at warming the body – whilst insulating is important, we need to develop performance fabrics, ones that don’t just heat the body, but thermoregulate. The difference is KYMIRA will help keep you warm in the cold, but cool when the temperature rises.
The performance aspect is fundamental to KYMIRA clothing. If insulation was the primary goal, we’d simply make fabrics thicker and heavier, but that would have a significant impact on performance.
In this article we’re looking at the insulating properties of KYMIRA and how it benefits us during winter training and competition.
