Harley-Davidson® Footwear Introduces Intellitemp® Technology to Keep Feet Comfortable at Any Temperature.
Sweaty feet in the summer and freezing toes in the winter need not take away from the thrill of riding year round, thanks to a new series of performance-driven footwear by Harley-Davidson® Footwear.
For summer 2011 H-D Footwear introduces several women’s and men’s styles featuring Intellitemp®, a state-of-the-art comfort technology. Intellitemp® is a temperature-regulating, anti-microbial moisture management system that is proven to help keep the wearer cooler in summer and warmer in the winter for the life of the product.
When body temperature rises above the ambient temperature the micro-encapsulated materials within the Intellitemp lining absorb the excess heat creating a cooling sensation. Similarly, when the temperature drops below the ambient temperature the microencapsulated materials release stored heat to help keep the foot warm over an extended period of time. This temperature-regulation is due to a cushioning ‘smart foam’ that helps to keep feet cool and dry by absorbing moisture and transferring it into a gel-like substance in the cushion.
With a constant flow of movement, the gelled ‘absorbed’ moisture dissipates continuously throughout the day. Intellitemp smart foam is constructed with EPA registered X-Static silver fibers that protect against odor and inhibit growth of bacteria.
For June 2011 Harley-Davidson Footwear introduces four styles for men and women featuring the new Intellitemp® lining.
“We pride ourselves on creating riding footwear that looks good and performs. This is especially true when you’re riding. There’s too much to concentrate on than having uncomfortable boots. Using a technology that improves temperature in hot and cold weather was a necessity for our customers who are serious about riding year round”, commented Hobie Burgnon, VP Sales at Harley-Davidson Footwear.
