How does graphene support sportswear and tools ?!
Many companies used graphene to produce unique sportswear and tools, which appears clearly in Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, behind sports competitions the companies have another competition by facing new technology and new material vs old material.
The Netherlands national cycling team was wearing a graphene-based shirt that employs Thermal Planar Circuit (TPC) technology designed by Directa Plus that an Italy-based company focused on providing sportswear supported by graphene and new materials technology, and have a new generation of sportswear that combines the properties of Directa Plus Graphene Plus (G+) with the benefits of postural compress fabric while offering superior comfort.
This new texture using graphene to absorb heat produced by the body and distribute it through its material. The shirt then dissipates this heat to the surrounding environment.
Korean archer Kim Je-deok has won two gold medals at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, using a secret weapon “Graphene Bow” this made from graphene by the Korean sports equipment company Win&Win, based in Anseong, Gyeonggi Province. Win&Win’s WIAWIS brand of bows are also made using aluminum, And the athletes chose between aluminum and graphene bows based on their preferences.
These Graphene bows are so flexible that they can be bent and returned to their original shapes without losing their performance. The material is considered better than aluminum in terms of performance.
In the past Win&Win previously made bows using carbon nanotubes, but replaced them with graphene. Graphene bows are 60-percent more durable and 20-percent more shock-absorbing than carbon nanotubes.
And Korean national track cyclist Lee Hye-jin, is riding Win&Win graphene cycles also.
