X-Technology, in Wollerau, Switzerland, has launched a new line of performance wear called X-Bionic for Automobili Lamborghini, which is engineered to enhance the performance of runners, cyclists, skiers, golfers, and even drivers. The X-Bionic items are developed and designed by X-Technology and produced in Italian textile mills.
The Super Trofeo driving jacket ($1,005)—named for Lamborghini’s Super Trofeo car racing series—features what the manufacturer calls the 3D Bionic Sphere system, which uses inner ribs and ridges to control air movement and the distribution and evaporation of sweat across the chest and back. It is composed of lightweight Macrotermes fiber that keeps the driver warm, while additional ribs and covers at the shoulders and elbows ensure flexibility and comfort. The jacket’s collar and cuffs are designed to dispel excess heat. It is adorned with Lamborghini’s shield in front, script on the arms, and the Super Trofeo logo between the shoulders. Worn in combination with X-Bionic’s Freeride FireShield shirt and pants, which similarly optimize perspiration management and airflow, the jacket represents a stylish yet serious approach to high-performance driving wear.
Other items in the X-Bionic collection include the Limited Huracán Edition runner’s shirt and shorts and the Xitanit 2.0 ski overalls, bike bib, bike socks, and golf shirt, all of which marry technology with style to help athletes reach their peak performance—or at least look like they are. Prices for many of the X-Bionic items are not yet available.
