This jersey and shorts are the product of Swiss based X-Bionic. Nuts and bolts of the jersey is that there is actually more material along the spine, which is intended to trick your body’s heat receptors to start sweating more quickly, thus starting the cooling process more quickly. The shorts, on the other hand, have done away with a layer of material, which X-Bionic claims means less chance of chafe. The end result is a very exposed chamois pad. As for the fashion appeal of it all, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. Both products will be available in North American later this year.
