Adidas has launched a base layer technology made to empower athletes in training and competition called Alphaskin.
The layer differs from traditional base layers, with each sections constructed to match the body’s movements in sport. The kinetic wrapped design movies with critical areas of athletes to eliminate unnatural friction between the fabric and skin. This allows athletes to focus and preform in training and competition.
Alphaskin was developed using a highly-advanced ARAMIS, a motion-capture system that finds where fabric could inhibit an athlete’s performance. Because of this, designers were able to create a wrapped performance layer that works with the movements of athletes across all sports.
Adidas Alphaskin is available now at Adidas stores and online, ranging from $25 to $150 USD.
