In just 11 years, X-SOCKS® has redefined the world of functional clothing.
People have been talking about functional clothing for decades. Manufacturers found big words to describe the limited progress made in textiles, but the clothing itself was hardly intelligent. The correct concept for intelligent customers with aspirations had yet to be discovered – by X-SOCKS® and X-BIONIC®.
In 2000, we were the first company to address the basic questions in depth and adopt a highly scientific approach. Was is it that makes our body so eminently capable? Where are perfect examples to be found in nature? How can textiles help athletes to use their energy resources more efficiently than ever before?
In the beginning there was a revolutionary functional sock. Then came an innovative jacket. Just like with evolution, the development was continually perfected. X-SOCKS® patents for leading solutions piled up. And long-standing believes about functional apparel ended up in the garbage due to outdated myths. In the place of bulky socks came anatomically shaped, multifunctional construction that maintained the barefoot climate found in nature. Instead of sweat-absorbing material came unique membranes into play that gave energy back to the body instead of absorbing it. From a technological viewpoint, X-SOCKS® and X-BIONIC® are more at home in the aviation industry than in the world of sports clothing. Our engineers make use of high-tech research and innovative materials. No detail is superfluous, every fibre has a function. And every product is a sophisticated construction that integrates the body perfectly into its sporting environment.
