Pine Crest provides many different types of performance wear fabric for garments for peak athletic performance! With elements such as moisture wicking, compression, breathability, and UV protection, the fabrics are engineered to give us the best athletic performance.

But what is this high-tech fabric really doing?

One advantage is that athlete can have a psychological advantage over competitors knowing that they are wearing the latest high-tech fabric! It give us confidence to go out there and give it all we got.

Mental advantages aside… We’ve got fabrics that help keep you cool, protect you from the sun, keep you dry, and increase blood flow to give you peak muscle performance!

Let’s break it down:

Moisture Wicking: Most wicking fabric is made from polyester. Polyester is a synthetic fabric and doesn’t retain as much moisture as natural fabrics. What makes wicking fabric different from regular polyester blend fabrics is the way it’s woven. The woven materials force moisture into and through the gaps in the weave so it can find the outer shell of the material. In other words, it keeps us dry no matter how sweaty we get!

Compression: Compression fabric is engineered with elastic gradient compression by the spandex fibers used. Compression fabric lessens vibrations, reduces fatigue, increases blood flow, improves performance, and expedites recovery. A firm compression keeps us at peak performance and recovery!

Breathability: Breathe comfort fabric restricts the trapping of heat in fabric. Through accelerated evaporation, these fabrics keep you drier and cooler longer. The lightweight fibers reduce friction to helps us stay cool all exercise long!

UV Protection: Many of Pine Crest’s fabrics are UV Protective because of the way the fabric is woven. The weave, color, weight, and stretch all factor into the UPF rating. This means your activewear is keeping you protected in the sun but don’t forget to wear sunscreen!

Your sports performance can be affected by a variety of things. Pine Crest Fabrics is always looking to make sure our performance wear fabrics are top quality with the best technology. Enhancing your performance is what we do best!
