Monday, January 12, 2015
Adidas Golf's new climachill apparel was designed to keep golfers cool on the course when temperatures rise.
The polos, made of 100-percent polyester, reinvent the climacool technology released by Adidas in 2005.
The polyester is made of flat yarn, which is not seen with the naked eye. It is light and ventilated.
The back of the neck if one of the warmest parts of the body. With the help of small aluminum dots strategically placed on the shirt, climachill allows the player to stay cool throughout the round. The technology also helps lift the polo off the body for airflow.
"The goal was to make a shirt that was cooler than anything we've made before," said Davide Mattucci, director of global apparel product marketing for Adidas Golf.
The polo comes in five styles for men, in five color schemes (black/solar blue, hi-res red/solar blue, light onix, solar blue, solar blue/white, white/solar blue). There are three polos available for women, in four color schemes (bahia megenta/white, black/solar blue, solar blue/white and white/solar blue). Cost: $75-80.
