The HL-0 Sprint Suit for men is designed solely for running faster. It features two of ASICS’ HL-0 fabrics* that are rigid and high stretch materials, designed to eliminate restrictions on the wearer’s motions without energy loss to unlock athletes’ fullest potential.
The high-performance fabrics used in the HL-0 Sprint Suit were developed in collaboration with TORAY, Japan’s largest synthetic fiber manufacturer and a leader in functional textiles. Compared to conventional materials, the high stretch fabric is about 80% lighter and takes only 80% of the force required for stretching. It reduces energy loss by delivering dynamic motion with less stress and the high rigidity fabric that stretches back like rubber.
The HL-0 Sprint Suit uses fabric tension in a unique way to supply the athlete with ample energy. The ‘stretch’ in the high rigidity fabric uses a passive motion to store energy in the fabric during the inertia phase of a sprint, giving back energy to the body in the ‘release’ phase.
