Carbon Energized Fiber C.E.F. associated with Dryarn is a combination of high performance fibers. A combination of innovative yarns that offer the athlete comfort, technology and practicality. Lightweight, insulating, breathable, Carbon Energized and Dryarn Polypropylene is the best ally of sports performance for an athlete and more.

TECHNOLOGY

UNDER SHIELD®

From the experience in the textile-engineering field, a new innovative fabric is born created to improve the performance of amateur and competitive sportsmen: C.E.F. “Carbon Energized Fiber”. Under Shield® garments are made from an exclusive combination of yarns with unique technical characteristics

C.E.F. “Carbon Energized Fiber”

The union of textile fibers with a continuous filament of conductive material based on Carbon Energized – Active Carbon, which acts on Human Thermodynamics, to improve the performance of every athletes.

DRYARN®

A material that’s more breathable than polyester, more insulating than wool, and lighter than any other fibre. DRYARN®, LIGHTNESS THAT GIVES WEIGHT TO WELL-BEING. A garment in Dryarn® weighs: 32% less than the same garment in wool 34% less than the same garment in polyester. During moderate-intensity training sessions, Dryarn© draws perspiration outward, helping balance the body’s thermo-regulation system and keeping skin dry.

C.E.F. Technology

The combination of Carbon Energized Fiber and Dryarn® polypropylene allows to improve the parameters of the body during physical activity.

Carbon Energized Fiber wicks perspiration away from the body, drawing it to the surface of the fabric for unrivaled breathability, reducing moisture levels on the skin.

It also ensures the body’s temperature stays constant, reducing sensations of heat and fatigue.

Athletes will immediately reap the benefits of balanced thermoregulation: heart rates drop and breathing improves.

How does Carbon Energized Technology react when body temperature rises?

When an athlete’s body temperature increases (be it due a hard workout or summer heat), the base of the molecules in the material expands, encouraging breathability and wicking moisture away from the body.

However, when the temperature drops again, the base of the material closes, trapping a thin layer of air between the skin and the fabric, thereby stabilizing the athlete’s body temperature.

It has been shown that garments in Carbon Energized Fiber increase athletic performance while betterprotecting muscles thanks to the conductivity of C.E.F. over the mid/long-term.

BENEFITS FOR A BETTER WORKOUT

TEMPERATURE STABILIZATION

When wearing Under Shield. garments, the fluctuation in body heat caused by physical activity is three times less volatile compared to polyester garments, maintaining a steady, comfortable temperature.

LOWER HEART RATE

Carbon Energized Technology can lower an athlete’s heart rate by 4 beats per minute compared to polyester.

BETTER BREATHING

Under Shield. garments help improve respiratory efficiency, reducing oxygen intake requirements by 3 liters per minute on average.

LACTIC ACID

Fabric with Carbon Energized Technology can reduce the production of lactic acid in capillary blood by up to 12% compared to other garments.

FABRIC PROTERTIES

SEAMLESS

Seamless garment construction protects the body and supports muscles in strategic points while leaving you unrestricted and free to move in every direction.

ANTI BACTERIAL

The wicking of sweat away from the body keeps skin dry, ensuring that bacteria don’t build up, thanks to the unique composition of C.E.F. fabric.

BREATHABILITY

Under Shield® garments wick sweat away from the skin, drawing it along the material’s fibres. Once perspiration reaches the surface of the fabric, it evaporates quickly and efficiently.

STANDARD 100 BY OEKO-TEX (R)

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the best known labels in the world for fabrics tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety. If a textile article bears the STANDARD 100 label, you can be sure that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article is therefore harmless in human ecological terms. . In many cases the limit values for STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements.

ECOSUSTAINABILITY FOR A BETTER WORLD

Our Dryarn® and Prolen® fibers are Ecosustainable for a better world. The Under Shield® family has decided to take an Ecosustainable path by carefully choosing their own fibers and the entire production cycle, reducing to the minimum the usage of electricity for production.
We care a lot about our environment that’s why we behave and produce our underwear with the most respect
for nature in order to preserve it the way we inherited it for our future needs. PROLEN®YARN, DRYARN® and its productions do not pollute the environment (water, air or soil). During the production of our underwear only a small amount of water is used (as opposed to cotton, to
produce 1 kg up to 11 liters of water).
Use the lowest temperature, or less energy (up to 45%).
No pesticides or toxic dyes are used to produce our garments.
