Dryarn and Mico sportswear collection

Mico, a producer of technical products for sport, has presented its MC2 collection, a sports underwear range designed for running, cross-country skiing and alpine skiing.

The collection aims to address the question of fighting the fatigue that subjects the body to great stress as a result of sports exercise. It is designed to provide performance enhancing aid during sports training and competition.

The Mico MC2 collection is the latest company’s development that is available on sale in leading Italian sportswear retailers for the 2013-2014 Autumn/Winter season, Mico reports.

MC2 sports underwear is said to offer outstanding performance features including breathability and thermoregulation, enhanced by the high percentage of Dryarn in the fabric. According to the company, Mico MC2 helps the wearer to feel less fatigued by reducing the formation of lactic acid and assisting its dispersion.

Carnosine molecule

MC2 sportswear made from Dryarn features carnosine molecule, that is already present naturally in the human body – in the crystalline lens, the brain and skeletal muscle tissue. Recent research has shown that it is a highly effective aid for anyone practising sport, according to the company.

Carnosine is said to help increase strength by activating the enzymes responsible for muscle contractions, combat inflammation of the joints and provide an antioxidant action.

It is also said to reduce fatigue, by converting the lactic acid in muscle tissue into pyruvic acid, a substance more easily absorbed by the body. This should increase resistance to muscular effort, delay the sensation of muscular pain and improve recovery rates.

Processing

Mico has a method for processing yarn and fabric, which is said to protect the fragility of this molecule, ensuring that it can effectively and safely perform its action on muscle tissue. This requires advanced technical fabrics, which are compatible with the molecule.
