FR Nano Sports Socks - Black/Red
FR Skates have collaborated with NanoGLIDE™ to bring you the best performing Socks for Skating ever! Available in 3 different colourways, the FR x Nano Sports Socks are uniquely engineered to be durable, wick sweat, dry fast and reduce friction. This way you get a fabric that is highly durable and breathable for fast evaporation; minimizing friction resulting in fewer hot spots, chafing and a reduced chance of blisters on the skins surface.
In depth details :
Comfort: PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) is the heart of NanoGLIDE. Their fabrics provide beneficial “tactile aesthetics”; to include (1) better fabric hand, (2) softer fabrics and (3) superior fabric loft. This means superior fabric bending, less flexural rigidity and improved compression and thickness. All of these factors impact comfort and hand; to include UV protection. These are the key fabric attributes to comfort; and the PTFE advantage; with every fabric made with NanoGLIDE.
Moisture Management: A garment or sock must be able to handle the amount of sweat being produced by the body and continuously move the moisture away from the skin; in order to allow the body to continue its natural cooling action through sweating. The material must also “dry” very fast to avoid “wetting out”. PTFE is extremely hydrophobic; thus wicking will occur very fast (as drying); but it will also be high performing for not “wetting out” like most products on the market today. Because PTFE is very hydrophobic; NanoGLIDE will conquer wicking, wetting out and moisture management; at maximum speed.
Heat Management: Heat Management is the ability of a fabric to allow the skin surface to cool; but to also address heat caused by static and kinetic friction. PTFE's coefficient of FRICTION is 0.1 or less, which is the second lowest of any known solid material known to mankind; eliminating Static and Kinetic friction; thus allowing the skin surface to stay cool by eliminating friction and abrasion on the skins surface. NanoGLIDE will yield a cooler product on the skins surface by eliminating abrasion and friction.
Friction & Abrasion Management: With the PTFE's coefficient of FRICTION is 0.1 or less, this means that Nano's products offer maximum abrasion control; and eliminates friction. The friction or rubbing of any apparel or sock on the skin; produces heat. Heat produces sweat. NanoGLIDE, when tested in the labs using accepted testing methodologies for measuring abrasion and friction, demonstrated a 2-3x increase in reducing static and kinetic friction over standard POY fabrics. That equates to a 200-300% improvement for any apparel or sock made with NanoGLIDE.
