What sets the Walero lineup of Nomex tech layers apart from others isn’t simply the thickness of the material, but rather the material itself. Walero uses a space-age material developed by National Aeronautics and Space Administration for off-world applications to regulate body temperature based on ambient temperature. It’s called Outlast technology, and it really is the stuff of science-fiction. Garments made with Outlast technology use thermo-regulation to keep you cool when the temperature rises and keep you warm when the temperature drops. This reduces perspiration by up to 33 percent and, as most racers already know, perspiration leads to dehydration and dehydration has all sorts of nasty side-effects that reduce reaction times and prevent you from putting down your best lap times and increase the odds of making a mistake.
Another benefit of Walero Nomex is its anti-microbial Envirotex treatment. This hospital-grade treatment is 99.99 percent effective against most common bacteria, eliminating a portion of the bacterial odors we’ve all become so accustomed to when opening our gear bag. In other words: less funk in your junk!
Also, as has become the norm for high-end tech layers these days, Walero uses flat-lock seams and super-soft fabric to maximize overall fit and comfort. $79 for a balaclava to $198 for a shirt.
