What's the difference with a running T-shirt?
There’s no doubt – a good running short sleeve tee can change your life. It keeps you dry, fresh and chafe-free. Probably most of us have seen pictures of marathon runners with nipple bleeding marks on their T-shirt. Nope, we certainly don’t want that on our running tee! So, if you are active – you run, cycle, go to the gym etc. – you should consider a good technical short sleeve.

Q: Can't I just run in a normal cotton T-shirt?
A: Cotton material isn’t advised for any high-intensity activity because of its lack of moisture management and low breathability. Sweat is captured in it, which causes bacterial growth, a bad smell and rubbing against your skin.
Q: What is a technical fabric?
A: Material made from (usually synthetic) fibres, which are moisture-wicking, breathable and stretchy. Every year, more and more companies are starting to use recycled polyester for running gear production, which makes it a sustainable and eco-friendly choice. It's not only the content of the fabric, but the construction of the fabric that gives it technical properties.
Q: What is the best running shirt material?
A: Polyester or nylon are great for any high-intensity exercises. Some companies blend them with natural material like tencel, merino wool or linen for comfort and a cooling effect.
Q: How to care for running T-shirts?
A: We recommend washing all your technical clothes in 30 degrees, ideally with detergent designed for sportswear. Do not use any softener and remember to line dry your clothes.
