Specialized PowerGrid Balaclava
Featuring a great fit, soft feel, and highly effective fabric that will help keep you warm and dry on cold rides, runs or hikes, the Specialized PowerGrid Balaclava is a featured garment from the Prime Series of cold weather gear. The coverage is excellent, allowing for easy integration with a tall collar jersey or jacket, in 360 degree fashion. From the name, you can identify the primary fabric type as Polartec's PowerGrid. This impressive knit has a base composition of 91% Polyester and 9% Spandex.
Polyester is the foundation of synthetic fleece textiles, and spandex stretches, so the combination is popular for outdoor gear. PowerGrid adds a constructed geometric pattern system that creates space and structures that will block some cold air, hold some heat in, and releasing moisture very effectively. It has a soft inner surface. In this piece, the key facial zones that require protection and warmth during cycling are covered in the PowerGrid structures. The rest of the design has the same fabric blend, without the geometric structures, so it still feels, stretches and breathes, but won't overheat in non-wind facing zones.
Polartec's PowerGrid™ patented grid construction knit strengthens performance efficiency by increasing warmth and breathability, while also reducing fabric mass. These geometric patterns improve compressibility, wicking, and add technical style. By reinventing thermal warmth possibilities, PowerGrid is a minimalist design that maximizes fabric performance.
