Women’s thermoreactive stretch merino baselayer leggings with next-to-skin comfort for alpine mountaineering, ski mountaineering, speed hiking and alpine trekking.
Performance thermoregulation Baselayers form the core of our layering systems, and should support the body’s natural thermoregulation process. This is a tough call during high-intensity workouts in wintry conditions. Salewa designed the Zebru Responsive Tight to deliver total mobility and warmth without compromising on performance – these leggings offer excellent wicking and drying performance, great next-to-skin comfort and natural odour prevention.
Smart fabric technology
The Zebru Tight is woven primarily with super-fine merino for optimal wicking warmth, temperature regulation and next-to-skin comfort. However, we knit the striped-mélange merino/poly blend fibres with matrix-patterned Responsive polyamide yarns that contain a unique blend of natural thermoreactive minerals.
Responsive recycles far-infrared radiation (FIR) from the body and gradually releases it back into the muscle tissue. The result: increased blood flow, enhanced cellular performance and higher oxygen levels so that you perform better, recover faster and stay warm longer. In addition, Responsive technology is a permanent part of the fabric and does not wash out.
The Zebru Tight is engineered using an innovative tubular knitting process, requiring minimal seams for greater comfort without chafing, according to a bodymapped pattern. The super-soft, tight-fitting athletic cut has additional 4-way stretch thanks to its core-spun elastane yarns wrapped in nylon. This tight was inspired by Monte Zebrù in the Ortler Alps on the border of South Tirol and is made in Italy. Our lightweight, body-mapped merino tights for enhanced thermo control and stretch comfort.
