Chaval Introduces Next Generation Nanotech Heated Gloves With New Self-Drying Technology

Exclusive Nanotech Heat Will Keep Fingers Toasty Warm up to Three Times Longer Than Any Other Brand

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2013) - The fast-approaching winter promises exhilarating days on the slopes and carefree fun in the snow -- universal pleasures that are denied to those that suffer chronic frigid fingers. Chaval Outdoor shatters this obstacle with the release of their next-generation Response-XRT heated ski glove containing exclusive alphaHEAT™ polymer nanotechnology. "We are eagerly looking forward to our customers and distinguished product reviewers experiencing the level of comfort these gloves are capable of providing," said co-founder Mark Boone.

In freezing weather, glove heating elements must produce 62 degrees Celsius to effectively keep hands warm. Other brands can produce this amount of heat only for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. The Response-XRT can produce this level of heat for up to 6 hours. Instead of the decades-old heating wire technology prevalent today in heated apparel, we developed a paper-thin polymer heating film with proprietary nanotech 'programming' that enables independent temperature regulation in each finger. This self-regulation, constantly adjusting the levels of power to the nanotech polymer in each finger, ensures perfect steady warmth, and enables excellent power conservation. The result is luxurious warmth and significantly longer battery life.

"We steadfastly believe our exclusive alphaHEAT™ technology is significantly more advanced and effective than any other. To prove our sincerity, we are publicizing an open invitation to all internal battery-heated glove brands to a side-by-side performance evaluation of their product vs. the Response-XRT in freezing conditions. Details are posted on our website," said Mark Boone.

Chaval is also introducing a new and exclusive enhancement to their no-hassle charging system: activeDRY™ built-in glove drying technology.

For many skiers, the accumulation of some moisture within the glove is commonplace. Until now, their only choices were to either live with the resulting discomfort and unpleasant odor, or purchase a bulky table-top glove drying system. Chaval's new, patent pending activeDRY™ technology is built into the charging system and will simultaneously recharge and dry Chaval gloves, reducing normal drying time by up to 50%. Reducing drying time not only ensures optimal comfort with every use, but will also help prevent unpleasant odor and bacteria growth. "activeDRY™ exemplifies Chaval's continued tradition of innovation and market firsts. We are shipping activeDRY™ chargers with every order this season and have no doubt these new features will heighten your enjoyment of our gloves," said Mark Boone.
