F.I.R.

BIEMME F.I.R. (Far InfraRed) technology

Biemme has often been bearer of innovation into the cycling world and it now presents a new collection with F.I.R. technology, thanks to the co-operation between the company from Vicenza and Dr. Mauro Testa.

Some info about F.I.R.

The F.I.R. rays are the non-visible part of light.

Their smallest particles can influence water and modify its state. When F.I.R. is reflected into the human body, it can break water clusters (bubbles filled with water and minerals). This allows to release into the body a big quantity of water and minerals.

Hundreds of medical studies, sports test and everyday use, demonstrate the F.I.R. effectiveness.

The advantages are:

  • enhanced performances
  • increase of microcirculation of the skin surface
  • reduced redness and swelling
  • reduced water cluster
  • reduced body temperature
  • acceleration of post workout / race recovery
