M-Clima® is the only flexible fast-response personal climate management system for comfort conditioning under demanding temperatures.

 

You can keep a stable body temperature to maximize your comfort, performance and safety.

 

Uses and applications:

punt

For powered recreational and professional vehicles users. It provides cooling in hot climates or during active riding, and heating in cold climates specially for extended riding.

punt

For Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) users. It provides cooling in hot environments and heating in cold environments, indoors and outdoors, thus increasing safety, comfort and productivity.

USING YOUR M-CLIMA®

Attach the fan unit to the vest

Connect the fan air exhaust to the matching vest air intake. Connect the flexible fan support snaps to the vest

Plug the heating cable to the matching outlet (when vest is equipped with heating)

Place the battery in the vest battery pocket. Be sure to pull the battery cable out through the hole at the bottom of the pocket

Connect the battery cable to the outlet marked with the battery symbol

On powered recreational and professional vehicles

Put on your protective equipment, making sure that the fan’s air intake is not fully covered by it.

Plug the fan unit to the vehicle with the cable supplied for this purpose*.

Activate the heating or cooling functions with the remote control supplied

When connected to the battery, it allows you for 2 hrs use off vehicle**.

* Note that you should check with your dealer for the correct connector to your vehicle

** The battery usage time may be extended or adapted based on customer’s requirement by using larger batteries

As Personal Protective Equipment

On cold environments, you can put your jacket on top of the M-Clima® system

On hot environments, you can wear the M-Clima® system over your first layer clothing

Plug the supplied power cord from the fan to the power outlet*

Activate the heating or cooling functions with the remote control supplied

* Note that you should check with your dealer for the correct wall outlet adapter

COOLING MODE

The fan pushes air inside the system. This air turns into a turbulent flow next to the skin, generating an evaporative cooling effect. This effect evaporates perspiration on the skin, helps lower the skin surface temperature, and it generates an immediate improvement on the user’s comfort.

 

Once the perspiration has been evaporated, the system continues to deliver a lighter Cooling sensation which keeps the skin dry and cool, without generating excess coolness. This enables the use to keep the body within an ideal temperature range.

HEATING MODE

Once the heating system is engaged, the heating panels start emitting a steady hot temperature. Thanks to their exclusive technology, the panels are designed to work in a constant temperature and to avoid overheating.

Increases safety (no overheating nor overcooling)

Suitable for all climates

Lightweight

Can be worn under your standard protective apparel

2 hours cooling autonomy off-bike*

Gentle handwashing resistant

*The autonomy depends on the battery size, and several options can be chosen to achieve different autonomy values.

ENDURO RIDING, COOLING STUDY

Thermal comfort > Reduced stress > Reduced Fatigue > Better mental and physical reaction times > Better performance

 

Under thermal comfort conditions, the heart rate is significantly lowered for a better riding performance.

Background

RIDERS:

• Rider A. 40 yrs old amateur rider. Medium physical condition

• Rider B. 47 yrs old professional enduro rider. Good physical condition

 

EQUIPMENT:

• Both riders wore full protective gear (GORE-TEX® jacket and cordura pants)

ACTIVITY:

• Enduro riding in a mountain area of the Pyrenees

• 2 runs each (1 x w/o system, 1 x with system)

• Each run 1 hr, 10 mins

• Ambient Temp Range : 22 – 26 ºC

Conclusions of the test

1.

Following the beginning of the rides, we can appreciate a divergence on the skin temperature caused by wearing or not wearing the system. Rider A experienced a decrease of around 6 ºC and Rider B experienced a decrease of around 2 ºC. Even on the well trained Rider B, the difference of temperature allows for better comfort and concentration. (Graph 1)

 

2.

The Rider A, while not training as hard or frequently as Rider B, achieved very similar temperature of the skin when wearing the system. The system has enabled Rider A to be as comfortable, concentrated and safe as Rider B. (Graph 1)

3.

When not using the system, both riders perspired until soaking their inner layers, and stayed wet throughout the rest of the ride. This can be measured as both reached above 80% relative humidity, which is above the threshold of perspiration. When riding with the system, both riders did not reach the perspiration point, thus remaining dry with all the benefits related to this condition. (Graph 2)

 

4.

Statistically, the tests results show a decrease of 10 bpm on average on the Heart Rate of the riders. This enables the riders to rider longer, safer and more intensely, helping to improve the performance and reaction times.
