TRACK TEST

SWEAT SAFETY COMES FIRST, BUT ALSO COMFORT AND ERGONOMICS ARE IMPORTANT, SO WE CARRIED OUT SOME TESTS ON SWEAT TOO, TO SEE HOW HOT IT IS INSIDE A RIB PROTECTOR AND A SUIT. TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA, AT 30°C ENVIRONMENT AND 42% HUMIDITY, DRIVING A KART WITH JUST A T-SHIRT UNDER THE SUIT, THE SWEAT MARKS WENT FROM 200 AVERAGE MV UP TO A MAXIMUM OF 700 MV. THANKS TO THIS TRANSPIRING MATERIAL AND THE SPECIAL MEMBRANE USED, WHICH ALLOWS HEAT TO DISSIPATE, WEARING A RIB PROTECTOR THE MAXIMUM WE GOT WAS ONLY 1.022 MV.
