At JEK Sports we carry a range of fabrics for our custom cycling clothing. Performance polyesters are used for cycling jerseys and lycra and poly/lycras as well as compression Spandex blends for cycling shorts, bibs and tights.
COOLDRY: Imported 100% polyester that have sweat wicking properties. Sweat is drawn away from the body to the surface of the fabric, helping to keep you cool. This product is super soft to the touch and prints very well. We are now able to offer the best quality fabric on all our jerseys. Mesh Vented Side Panels : Optional extra. This just gives that extra cooling and venting feature to make our cycling jerseys the best.
Imported Italian Fabrics: With a new range of imported performance fabrics we can offer new fabrics that not only look and feel good but will help in your performance:
ROMBINO: Our top performance fabric which is lightweight and moves heat and moisture away from the body helping to keep you cool. A soft feel keeps you feeling comfortable. A UPF rating of 50 to protect you from the sun.
CARBON: Antistatic, bacteriostatic, UV reflective and it is shown that Carbon increases the efficiency of technical sportswear increasing muscular performances of the athlete. Carbon is high performance, in particular, in disciplines that require prolonged physical effort over time and under high temperature ambient conditions. The performance of the athlete, intended as the percentage of metabolic energy that the muscular system is able to transform into mechanical energy, remains constant and even tends to grow during the thirty minutes of effort wearing the shirt Carbon; in particular it is observed a performance of 24.68% at 15 minutes against one of 24.93% at the end of 30 minutes. On the contrary, by wearing a jersey in total polyester, the performance percentage tends to diminish over time during the exercise. So Carbon delays the onset of fatigue during exercise.
BIOCERAMIC: A fabric for cooler areas with a polyester fiber linked to bio-ceramic crystals and capable of performing an action highly beneficial to the human body. On the one hand a natural absorbing function against harmful ultraviolet rays UV-A and UV-B impacting the skin causing irritation, sunburn and melanomas. On the other, reflective action of the rays of thermal nature constitutes a real shielding effect against the heat of the sun. The unique technology of Bioceramic allows to lower the temperature of the inner surface of the fabric ensuring freshness and comfort during sports activities and exposure to the sun.The solar spectrum contains not only the harmful UV-A and UV-B but also the beneficial FIR, far infrared rays, a type of electromagnetic waves of reduced length. Thanks to the action of bio-ceramics, the body heat absorbed by the yarn can be returned in the form of rays FIR (far infrared rays) that are able to penetrate the subcutaneous tissues and stimulate the micro circulation, strengthening our metabolism. As studies in the biological field have shown, FIR rays are absorbed very easily by the body to which they are an essential contribution for its growth and development. Bioceramic is thus able to reproduce the FIR rays emitted by the sun also known as “rays of life”.
