Adidas introduced a new technology this month called Climachill, a new innovation in their active cooling apparel line.

It incorporates innovative fabric woven with titanium and (an industry-first) 3D aluminium cooling spheres that provide an instant chilling sensation. The high tech fabric is designed to transfer heat away from the body to help the athletes’ performance in warm conditions -- lowering their body temperature, so they can train harder, run longer, retain focus and compete at the highest level.

Cooling spheres are strategically located on the back, neck and forearms to correspond with the warmest areas of the body, providing a cooling sensation upon contact. The micro fiber fabric allows the apparel to act like mesh and moves excess moisture away from your skin. Using evaporation and conduction methods together for the first time, the ground-breaking SubZero flat yarn contains titanium and is woven throughout the inside of each article of clothing. Flat yarn has more surface area than traditional yarns, which enables it to transfer heat away from your body.

Climachill pieces included running, training and tennis tees, tanks and shorts. They are available nationwide at select retailers and Adidas' online store from $40 to $60.
