Performance Racers are Staying Cool on the Track this Summer. Thanks to the ThermApparel UnderCool Cooling Vest This innovative cooling vest weighs less than two pounds and lasts longer than the competition—improving drivers overall performance.
Imagine a cooling vest with no hoses, no wires, no ice and no nonsense! The ThermApparel UnderCool cooling vest provides racers with cooling relief at their core, allowing them to cool down faster and stay cool longer. The average temperature in the cockpit during the summer months can exceed as much as 140 degrees Fahrenheit. There’s no doubt that the heat impacts the driver’s performance, especially when wearing all of the required gear such as the balaclava and the 3 layer fire suit.
While the vehicle’s ventilation system does improve the impacts of the heat, it can only do so much! That’s why wearable gear like the UnderCool helps provide cooling relief from the inside out! The cooling packs are made of phase change material and rather than being frozen, they are simply cold enough to keep drivers cool for up to 2 hours and can be safely worn directly against the skin.
Spec Miata racer, Charlie Boehly of Rochester, NY has found that implementing the vest into his race gear, has allowed for less weight, immediate cooling relief, and most importantly, better concentration. Overheating in the cockpit is a common problem among drivers and this negatively impacts both cognitive abilities and physiological wellbeing.
"The UnderCool lowered core temps by a FULL 3 degrees from the morning race (no vest) to the afternoon race (with vest) and ten degrees warmer ambient. I couldn’t wait for the morning race to be over. I could have gone double the laps in the afternoon with the vest. It works, period!”
Kurtis Kracke, Co-founder/CEO/ designer/creator of the vest speaks more to the their mission, “ThermApparel has created a product that works with the body’s natural abilities of cooling itself. The cooling packs absorb the heat away from the body and cool the core temperature. This allows the cooler blood to flow and circulate through the body more freely, keeping the core temperature cooler for longer and also helping aid fatigue.” Improving race day performance is made simple with the UnderCool and its innovative technology that makes it lightweight, breathable, comfortable, washable, and adjustable!
••Important: ThermApparel cooling products can help prevent the effects of overheating from exertion or the environment. But when signs of heat exhaustion are present, seek immediate medical treatment.**
From our humble origins we have been striving to help people live active, comfortable, and safe lives. In a time like this we all need more help and we hope this information on masks and the pitfalls of their use can help. Remember that if you are overheating you can also make sure to stay a safe distance from others to remove your mask and take water breaks and switch out your cooling packs.
Stay safe, stay healthy, stay happy.
