CARFIBEX is the ultimate performance base layer

In order to reach peak performance, your body needs to be at a certain temperature. CARFIBEX base layers help you keep the warmth, but lose the sweat.

  • What is a performance base layer? It’s a skin-tight garment that helps to keep your muscles at the optimum temperature.
  • What is the optimum temperature for performance? Around 97°F or 36°C, according to recent scientific research.
  • What is the best base layer? If you are looking for cutting-edge performance, CARFIBEX is hard to beat.

How do top athletes manage to hit peak performance in freezing conditions? The answer is pretty simple: they wear base layers. These skin-tight garments help to keep your muscles warm, without causing an unnecessary build-up of body heat.

Of course, you don’t have to be a Green Bay linebacker to benefit from wearing base layers. If you work outdoors or just love playing sports, you would be well advised to invest in some base layer apparel.

CARFIBEX performance base layer is one of the most advanced technical garments we’ve seen. Made from state-of-the-art fabric, this second skin helps to wick away sweat and keep you comfortable.

Why do I need a performance base layer?

Contrary to popular belief, base layers are not a new invention. Layered clothing has been used for decades by outdoors enthusiasts as an effective form of temperature control.

The only contrast with today’s base layers is the technology involved. The CARFIBEX performance base layer contains a unique mix of cashmere wool, Micromodal and carbon fiber. If it sounds space-age, that’s because it kinda is.

The weave offers remarkable moisture control, and it feels soft to the touch. In addition, the base layer is very lightweight and flexible.

Technical sportswear

Most of us think of wool as the kind of warm, fuzzy material you would only wear in winter. But wool has other less well-known properties.

For instance, wool naturally repels water — that’s how sheep can survive in harsh mountain conditions. It can also wick away moisture, and the material is odor-resistant.

The special fabric used in CARFIBEX includes threads of cashmere wool. This is much softer than the Merino wool that we are more used to. As a result, the base layer is silky smooth to the touch.

The fabric also contains carbon fiber. Aside from being very lightweight and durable, the carbon has anti-static qualities. This means you won’t experience the unpleasant shocks that are so often generated by synthetic fibers.

The other two key ingredients are Lycra and Micromodal. The former provides superior elasticity, while the latter offers exceptional moisture management.

These threads are woven together in a fine knit that helps to maintain the ideal temperature for your body. In addition, there are two versions of CARFIBEX — one for summer and one for winter.

“Temperature is scientifically proven to influence muscle physiology. When muscle temperature drops below 32 degrees Celsius, less energy is required to cause muscle tears. Available in both Summer and Winter weight variations, we are proud to give you CARFIBEX” — Iron Ocean on Kickstarter

The highlights

The unique CARFIBEX fabric offers an impressive blend of properties. It means your base layer is comfortable, effective and hygienic.

Future upgrades

The current Kickstarter focuses only on the upper body. We’re looking forward to seeing some CARFIBEX performance base layer pants!
