Primato is the new occupational footwear of Dike, which thanks to its ergonomics, reduces muscular fatigue, provides 40% extra lightness compared to standard occupational shoes, and offers an energy return of 40%, while also guaranteeing correct posture thanks to the shift of the centre of gravity towards the heel.
The innovative DTRS® system is made up by numerous technologies: DER® technology is at the heart of the revolutionary midsole made up by polyurethane microcapsules which, when the shoe impacts the ground, stores the kinetic energy to then return it in the subsequent step phase with an energy return of 40%. The DXT® carbon fibre toecap has an incredible strength-weight ratio. One step ahead of future safety regulations, the penetration-resistant sole in aramid fibre of DTS® weighs 50% less than the most widely used midplates but is also ultra-resistant. The removable DAS® insole (washable, anti-fungal, and antibacterial) is made up by microcapsules that massage the foot with an anti-fatigue effect and optimal ergonomic support.
Dike also proposes a line of workwear, Primato 37.5, which helps the body cool down or warm up based on the amount of humidity next to skin. When you’re hot, active particles embedded into the material use your body’s energy to remove moisture and cool you down. When you’re cold, the active particles retain the body’s energy to warm you up. In fact, the technology helps you maintain a personal microclimate relative humidity of 37.5%, while also removing sweat in the vapor stage before liquid sweat forms and trapping odours and then releasing them when washed and dried. The active particles are derived from nature and the technology works for the entire life of the clothing. The line is made up by Twill Tech water-repellent trousers, and Polos and T-shirts in woven honeycomb fabric.
