Smart shirt enhances and tracks athletic performance

NILIT, a leading global manufacturer and marketer of premium Nylon 6.6 apparel fibers, recently featured its portfolio of Sensil® Nylon 6.6 products for the sports apparel market in Munich. NILIT is particularly proud to present the ISPO Textrends Top Ten award-winning Sensil® Innergy fabric designed and manufactured by Tiba Tricot, as well as a unique Sensil® Innergy smart garment created in collaboration with knitting technology leader Santoni.
 
"We are thrilled to present Tiba's fantastic Sensil® Innergy fabric and the other extraordinary Sensil® premium Nylon 6.6 products in our performance portfolio" says Pierluigi Berardi, NILIT Global Marketing VP.
 
Sensil® was designed to address the evolving consumer attitudes about apparel shopping and, with its launch, immediately elevated the quality standard for Nylon 6.6. Sensil® represents NILIT's new way to convey the many benefits of its premium Nylon 6.6 products to consumers looking for value, performance, and quality.
 
Tiba's award-winning Sensil® Innergy base layer fabric is ultra-light and incredibly soft but also boasts the proven athletic performance benefits of Sensil® Innergy premium Nylon 6.6. Sensil® Innergy gently reflects energy back to the body to invigorate muscles for improved athletic performance and recovery and reduce the appearance of cellulite. The Sensil® Innergy fabric also boasts increased durability, UV protection, and odor-resistance. Base layer garments made with this incredible fabric will answer the market's call for multi-tasking products that deliver value-added benefits, unparalleled comfort, and impeccable design.
 
NILIT has also collaborated with Santoni, and Italian high-tech yarn producer Tecnofilati. The three companies worked together to create a high-performance smart seamless t-shirt in which Sensil® Innergy enhances athletic performance and recovery and the Resistex® Silver conductive yarn enables the tracking of heart rate, motion, and other performance metrics. Santoni's exclusive EVO4J seamless technology allows for better distribution of yarns throughout the garment for superior connectivity, and ensures an ultra-comfortable garment that doesn't chafe or bind.
