Resistex® Carbon, on the other hand, is an excellent antistatic and bacteriostatic: it disperses static electricity and does not undergo alterations if attacked by bacteria, molds, moths, insects or other microorganisms.
Thanks to the “Seamless” technology, you can enjoy ideal muscle compression with great freedom of movement.
The summer-winter technical trousers are a smart garment made of Dryarn® and Resistex® Carbon yarn, a combination that actively acts to increase well-being in the saddle. Thanks to the “Seamless” technology, the garment does not deform and adapts to the morphology of the body, to ensure freedom of movement and muscle compression. The high degree of insulation and breathability of the materials keeps the body temperature constant, even at low temperatures, and transfers sweat from the epidermis to the outer layer of the fabric,
for a fast evaporation process. Dryarn® does not undergo any alteration if attacked by bacteria, molds, moths, insects or other microorganisms; carbon fiber, on the other hand, guarantees the dispersion of static electricity.

TS1 Short Sleeve Crewneck in Carbon Underwear® by SIXS
TS1 is the short-sleeved crew-neck shirt made of Carbon Underwear®, a material patented by SIXS, which, thanks to the careful mix of technical fibers and the particular intertwining point, guarantees perfect transpiration and a constant body temperature during all seasons and in all climatic conditions. Unlike the sleeveless (SMX), the sleeve wraps the upper arm and the armpit, subject to abundant sweating, keeping the epidermis cool and dry. The polypropylene fiber, the lightest and most breathable on the market today, intertwined with a weft of carbon threads (with thermoregulatory and antistatic properties), protects the body from the electrical load caused by the rubbing of several synthetic fabrics together, a typical condition of 'sportswear in general.

PN2L (with pad) and PNXL by SIXS: the LEGGINGS dedicated to the motorcyclist
The PN2L and PNXL SuperLight Carbon Underwear leggings allow you to never give up the pleasure of driving, even on particularly hot days, thanks to the thermoregulation and transpiration properties of the SuperLight Carbon Underwear® by SIXS fabric which, like a second skin, allows the motorcyclist to maintain the correct body temperature, transporting sweat (and with it the heat) outside, without absorbing it. The result is a pleasant sensation of dryness and freshness on the skin.
The two products differ only in the presence of a variable density breathable chamois dedicated to motorcyclists (called "Motorcycle PAD") in the PN2L model. Motorcycle Pad is the revolutionary double density pad, designed specifically for the motorcyclist thanks to the particular shape that exactly covers the areas subject to vibrations and rubbing, in particular for the "Adventure" riding position where the knee drops below the hip joint, following the profile of the saddle.
Price: the PNXL and PN2L leggings (with pad) are on sale on the website www.six2.com and at SIXS dealers at the price, respectively, of Euro 48,90 (VAT included) ed Euro 69,90 (VAT included).
