Sports fabrics generally refer to the fabrics of clothes during exercise. In fact, most of such fabrics are polyester.

The first feature you need is quick drying.

Because you need to sweat a lot during exercise, wearing pure cotton clothes does absorb sweat, but the sweat is absorbed on the clothes, and the clothes become wet and it is difficult to evaporate. And many sports fabrics, such as CLIMAFIT from ADIDAS, DRI-FIT from NIKE, and ATDRY from Li Ning, are all made of 100% polyester. It quickly evaporates the sweat, so you will not feel any heavy feeling of the clothes, nor will it stick to the body, it can be said to be the first choice for intense sports.

The cross-section of this fiber is a unique flat cross shape, forming a four-slot design, which can discharge sweat more quickly and volatilize. It is called a fiber with an advanced cooling system. It is worth mentioning that the Chinese Table Tennis Corps won the gold medal in Sydney, wearing clothes woven from Coolmax fibers.
