Daniel’s idea ‘Lenticulon’ is a new material developed for On that provides energy back to self-supported Fastest Known Time (FKT) long-distance runners while keeping them cool and comfortable. This is achieved through the use of Celliant, a performance fibre treatment which transforms your body's heat into full-spectrum infrared energy.
Daniel’s application uses this effect to improve muscle health and adds a graphene coating to reduce chafing. He has developed two constructions - one knit, and one rip-stop woven - using conductive yarns to facilitate body sensor use, in turn affording the FKT runners increased awareness of their body's needs throughout the run.
