Here at NoApollo, we're a team of athletes and outdoors enthusiasts located in Los Angeles, California. We're keen on health and fitness and we can typically be found either hiking in the mountains, cycling on the beach, surfing, distance running, or taking part in some random outdoor activity.
Summer is no doubt, our favorite time of the year, but it also presents us with the challenge of extreme heat. After one too many workouts stopped short due to heat exhaustion, we knew we had to find a better way to cool ourselves off.
PVA cooling towels quickly became our ally to combating the heat, but like all the solutions before, they had their own set of problems. The PVA material was rubbery, awkward to wear, and it got hard when it dried.
We saw this as an opportunity to create something better using the same evaporative cooling technologies that the PVA towels used. We wanted something soft, lightweight, wearable, and fashionable. Something that could double over as both a headband and a body towel. Hence, we created our first cooling product - NoApollo Cooling Towels.
NoApollo cooling towels are made of a soft breathable microfiber polyster and polyamide mesh composite. When the towel is wetted, wrung out, and then waved in the air (like a sandy beach towel), it creates a hyper-evaporative funnel of air throughout the fabric. The rapid circulation of air rapidly pulls heat away from the body and gives off an instant chilling effect.
When water evaporates, it gets cold. It's as simple as that.
Keeping the body at a low internal temperature is necessary for optimal performance.
Cooling the body down promotes relaxation, accelerates recovery, boosts energy, and increases mental clarity.
In high impact sports such as mixed martial arts, a prepped cooling towel during a quick rest interval can drastically lower the body's internal temperature within seconds. In endurance sports such as long-distance running, a cooling towel can be used as a headband or neck tie to reduce fatigue and keep you going harder for longer.
Many have discovered that our cooling towels are the fastest and most effective way to quickly cool off during warm weather and intense physical training. And many high-level athletes have stated that cooling towels have become an essential part of their toolkit that helps them to perform at their very best.
