The Performance Apparel with the CoolMax® & Lycra® Advantage

Real World Test Results

World Marathon Report
An in depth research study, conducted by the Penn State Center for Sports Medicine from 1991 through 1995, showed that performance can be enhanced by the type of athletic apparel worn during exercise.

This study conducted under the direction of Dr. William Kraemer found that both male and female athletes experienced significant improvements in force and power production. Unfortunately; no part of the study applied to marathon running.

Regardless, we decided to wear test the Lontex Corporation LYCRA® POWER™
CoolMax® performance shorts. They come in full length and 3/4 length sizes. They were very comfortable to wear and because of the CoolMax® fibers blended through the LYCRA® POWER™ fibers, you feel less vibration through the muscle belly.

CoolMax® component allows for comfortable running even as the body temperature rises. We can't qualify as to how much the performance shorts assisted in increasing endurance, but we can say with confidence that the LYCRA® POWER™ CoolMax® performance certainly assisted the recovery process significantly; possibly through the effect of less muscle vibration.
