SIXS - Original Carbon Underwear technology

YOUR SECOND SKIN

Original Carbon Underwear®: is the patented fabric that makes our garments unique; the precise blend of technical fibers and distinctive weaving stitch ideally come together to create a fabric designed to help athletes attain a level of comfort never before experienced during their sports activities.

The blend of materials includes:

  • CARBON
  • POLYPROPYLEN
  • POLYAMIDE
  • ELASTAN

THE SECRET LIES IN THE FABRIC

The configuration of the fabric allows sweat to be truly taken away from the skin to the outside.

This means:

  • the skin remains dry
  • by preventing perspiration from stopping, the formation of bacteria and bad odors are eliminated
  • the products dry quickly after washing

Because it respects the skin and protects it from bacteria and pollutant dusts: the Carbon Underwear® fabric has properties that eliminate the risk of annoying allergies, reduce the proliferation of bacteria and the procreation of bad smells.

Temperature and intensity

The two main factors that determine the choice of one product over another are the level of physical activity (such as intensity of effort) and the temperature of the environment in which the product will be used.
