CW-X Fabrics

WARMSTRETCH fabric captures and releases moisture vapor unlike any other technology. This means the hotter the user gets, the stronger the driving force removing moisture becomes—and the more comfortable the garment remains.

COOLMAX® is the fastest drying fabric known to man. It moves moisture instantaneously from the body out to the fabric’s outer surface where it evaporates at twice the speed of cotton.

LYCRA® possesses the unique ability to stretch yet retain its shape.

Scientists at the Wacoal Human Science Research Center (WHSRC) in Kyoto, Japan, have extensively studied kinesiology, the science of human movement. They have come to understand the mechanics of joints and muscles in minute detail. This exhaustive study of body movement has culminated in CW-X® Conditioning Wear® and over 15 US patents.

Biomechanical studies at the WHSRC have shown increased lower torso/leg stability and balance during running, reduced knee impact during the foot-strike phase, and reduced rate of fatigue during and after exercise.
