S.I.O – Minimal Pattern

S.I.O is the name we have given to our own, unique pattern cutting technology developed to help optimize physical performance.

Basically, it develops garment design and pattern cutting that optimally matches natural body movement, from a starting point of a human figure in an action – rather than a static – body posture. Thanks to this technology: The body and sleeves can be made in one piece, reducing the number of parts requiring sewing.

The fabric can be cut on the bias in parts of the garment where greatest freedom of movement is needed.

Sewn seams can be eliminated or minimized in places where greatest friction will occur.

Garments can be designed and made that significantly improve mobility and comfort by making them lighter, and taking maximum advantage of the natural properties of the fabrics.

Schematech SKY

More Free, More Dynamic

Schematech technology is the process of adding necessary functions in panel format in a single piece of fabric by changing the knit structure.

At DISC, Descente's R&D center, 3D measurements were made of body movements when skiing. Experiments were then conducted to determine what parts of the body are subjected to pressure from garments that leads to physical hindrance or discomfort when skiing.

By visualizing how much load is applied to elbow bending and stretching, to the arms, and to the torso through these experiments, the parts of the garment fabric that need to be stretchable became clear. Then, working jointly with DISC's pattern engineers, these parts were mapped on the garment to show where and how much elasticity was needed.

SKY Characteristics: Elasticity

Skiwear in stretchable fabrics is widely available, but Descente's Schematech technology adds another dimension.

The human body has areas that require high elasticity and areas that do not, depending on movement. Schematech gives a single piece of fabric the necessary elasticity for both areas by changing the way it is knitted.

(1) Enabling minimal sewing

Standard seam sewing inhibits the elasticity of a fabric.

Schematech fabrics, however, have a high degree of stretch due to the absence of seams, allowing for much greater freedom of movement.

(2) Comfort like a second skin

By changing the knitting structure, the thickness of the fabric in each area can be varied, and functions such as elasticity and durability can be added to each area to make the garment respond like a second skin.

Developed by Toray, Dermizax is a soft, stretchy, nonporous laminated fabric with superior waterproofing and anti-condensation features. The outer layer stops water from entering, while the inner layer absorbs and expels moisture to the outside where it spreads and dries quickly to keep you dry and comfortable.

3D insulator

Different climates in different environments/ freezing cold/ end-of-season temperature fluctuations.

Athletes who open and close their zippers many times due to intense physical activity in such environments always complained "If only there was a garment that breathed like an organic body . . ." The 3D ventilation system on the back of the garment is the answer to this problem. The special tube structure containing down provides high warmth retention and the ventilation system placed in the front and back of the garment promotes internal air flow. Ventilation also expels excess humidity, enabling the body to stay dry at all times.

The Breathing System's upper back ventilation openings work in conjunction with the underarm zips to promote ventilation of excess moisture from within the garment. This system compensates for the limited breathability of the fabric and keeps the body dry.

Critical SEAL

It's not full seam seal but seamed in a critical part in terms of water proof when skiing(Not 100% water proof)

Logos sewn on to the outer material of garments are a thing of the past. Now, with a unique heat sealing and welding process developed by Descente, the logo shape is laser cut into the fabric, and welded in place from underneath. This makes them much thinner, lighter and more flexible than the traditional sewn ones.
