When it comes to pinnacle performance, LeBron James champions action over words. “I'm always trying to push the limit and not worry about what people say the body can and cannot do," declares James.
James employs this philosophy in-season and during his dynamic, year-round indoor and outdoor training, which includes yoga, running, biking and weightlifting — just a few elements of his routine. This range of activities is best served by tights with a second skin-like fit that minimize external conditions to help improve focus.
The Nike Pro Hypercool Max men’s training tight provides a compression fit from ankle to hip that moves with the body, while seamlessly managing the heat of indoor and outdoor training with a breakthrough combination of zoned venting and reflective, metallic material.
Designers tapped into research from Nike’s Advanced Innovation Kitchen that tracked cricket players in some of the world's hottest geographic zones. These outdoor athletes were constantly under direct sunlight and needed more than just lightweight materials to combat the heat. Inspired by the reflective windshield sunshades that help cool car interiors, Nike designers created a thin, metalized polymer film that blocks UV light and infrared heat.
The Nike Pro Hypercool Max men’s training tights, comprised of ultra-lightweight Dri-FIT Max fabric, incorporates that thin film into a graphic pattern across the knee and shin, areas most affected by the sun’s warming rays, while zoned venting across the back of the tight increases airflow in key sweat zones.
