Abstract

Textile materials are an essential part of all sports as sportswear, and in many games as sports equipment and sports footwear. The sports textiles sector includes specialist apparel for specific sports each with its own particular functions. This chapter emphasizes the requirements and applications of different sport textile materials in hi‐tech applications, with very good wear comfort properties. Comfort describes especially through thermal comfort and relates to moisture management. Testing methods of textile physiology provides us with the scientific means to evaluate real performance benefits of textile materials in extreme conditions. Ultimate performance is essential for professional competitors, but it is also important to hobby athletes. High‐performance materials have also environmental impact. The requirements of sustainability are increasing. Composite and mixed materials make the as yet rare textile recycling a challenge, especially smart and electrical devices which create totally new sustainability issues.
