Ski jacket with Hydro_Bot technology

29.11.2018 he sports apparel brand KJUS of skiwear manufacturer LK International AG Cham/Switzerland, has unveiled a garment with an electronic, user-controlled membrane. The technology – Hydro_Bot, integrated by KJUS into a ski jacket, actively pumps out sweat from inside the jacket to keep skiers dry.


TKJUS’s 7Sphere Hydro_Bot ski jacket actively pulls sweat away from the inner garments and out of the jacket using a process called electro-osmosis. This overcomes the issue of sweat becoming trapped inside a skier’s clothing system, and the dreaded post activity chill that results from having saturated inner garments.
The technology is incorporated into the jacket in 2 panels located on the high-sweat zone of the back. The technology consists of 3 functional layers; a membrane made up of trillions of pores/m², surrounded by conductive fabric. When a small electrical pulse is applied, the pores turn into micro-pumps, actively pumping sweat away from the body and out of the jacket quickly and efficiently. The jacket can be switched on and off with the integrated control unit or via Bluetooth from the iPhone and Android compatible app.
