About High Performance Wear
It uses the best combination of Chillproof 3-layer fabric where you need warmth + Hydrophobic Nanotech Compression fabric where you need maximum flexibility and for best muscle performance boosted by Far Infrared (FIR) technology + 4-Way Stretch neoprene where you require extra comfort and abrasion resistance to create a range of garments that provide full protections from the elements. By seeking feedback from and listening to the world’s best watersports athletes Sharkskin has designed the ultimate performance watersports range.
How does it achieve this? The entire front and lower back uses Chillproof 3-layer windchill proof fabric to keep your core and kidney area warm. The front also has a ½ zip for 100% warmth when you zip up, or allows you to unzip and vent when needed for body temperature regulation.
The shoulders and arms are covered with a new Hydrophobic Nanotech Compression fabric. This new compression fabric is heavier-weight to provide more insulation and better compression properties to help speed recovery, yet is extremely flexible to provide total freedom of movement across the back and shoulders for active watersports.
The compression fabric uses Hydro-Lock technology to repel water and to minimise water absorption even when submerged for a truly Hydrophobic finish.
The fabric also uses the Far Infrared (FIR) Nano-technology. By embedding titanium into the fabric three performance enhancements are achieved – 1.a further boost in warmth from your body’s reflected heat, 2.a boost in the health, performance and recovery benefits attributed to the Far Infrared radiation created, 3.a permanent anti-microbial effect.
The wrist has a welded-band cuff to keep it super secure and to stop it riding up when paddling or swimming. The shoulder area uses “posture right” kin aesthetic panels that help with musculoskeletal form for all active watersports where you are using shoulder and arm rotation.
