2BKOOL is Indy Team's Secret Weapon
When the Fazzt team prepares and races for the Indy 500 trophy this month, driver Alex Tagliani and his crew will have help in defeating that continual nemesis in racing – heat exhaustion. Under their fire-suits, the team will be wearing 2BKool apparel with its unique phase-change technology especially developed to combat heat.
Alex Tagliani first tested the 2BKool system at the Kansas Indy car round and “absolutely loved it!”
Indy cars and other racecars with space and weight limitations for carrying water-cooled systems are ideally suited for 2BKool products. No tubing or plumbing with potential for failure are required – just wearing the lightweight and comfortable underwear provides body climate control.
Microcapsules inserted into the base-layer fabric absorb heat and allow the body’s own perspiration to cool them. The microcapsules absorb heat at a greater rate than other sweat-wicking fabrics can transfer heat away from the skin surface. 2BKool apparel is suited for all extreme sports and activities where heat is an issue. In addition to the fire-resistant products, a new line for sports that do not require protection against fire is soon to be released. 2BKool is designed and manufactured in a historic factory in South Boston, Virginia.
