@SummitRacing • @COOLSHIRT •(May 16, 2016)- The inside of a race car or off-roader is hot—darn hot. Being hot is not only uncomfortable, it can throw off your concentration and ability to react. That can cost you a win—or worse, cause an accident.
Being toasty isn’t an issue when you’re sporting a Cool Shirt. Developed to manage body heat in extreme environments like racing, a Cool Shirt is layered with tubing that circulates temperature-controlled cool water around your torso from an ice-filled base unit. The shirt stabilizes body core temperature, reduces heat stress and prevents dehydration. When you’re nice and cool, the chances of blowing a launch or making an error are greatly reduced.
Summit Racing offers a full line of Cool Shirt products including:
Cool Shirt Water Shirts
These shirts features sewn-in, non-kink tubing that supplies consistent, continual cooling to the wearer’s torso from a Cool Shirt base unit. The shirt fabric is moisture-wicking, provides anti-microbial protection, and won’t shrink or fade. Machine washable too! Available in men’s X-small, small, medium, large, X-large, 2X-large, and 3X-large.
The compact Club System is ideal for short-duration competition like drag racing or autocross. The base unit has an internal pump which supplies cooled water to a Cool Shirt through double insulated hose with automatic shutoff/quick disconnects. Your choice of a 12 quart or 24 quart capacity unit. Hose is not included, but is available at Summit Racing.
Pro Air and Water Cooling System
Into road racing, circle track, off-road/desert racing or other endurance racing? The Pro Air and Water System is what you want. It delivers temperature-controlled cooled water to the driver’s Cool Shirt plus cooled HEPA-4 filtered air to their helmet via a 235 cfm blower. The base unit holds 12 quarts of water and has an internal pump to circulate water through the Cool Shirt. A dual temperature control switch allows the user to regulate the flow and the temperature of water based on external temperature variation. You also get eight feet of double insulated water hose with automatic shutoff/quick disconnects to attach the cooling unit to the Cool Shirt
Back Pack Cooler System
You can use a Cool Shirt to keep cool in the pits or your home shop by attaching it to the Back Pack Cooler System. The lightweight backpack-style system can be worn over your Cool Shirt or other clothing; the battery-powered 7.4V pump can circulate cool water for up to two hours before you need to add ice. The Back Pack Cooler System comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, recharger, and two ice bottles.
Summit Racing also carries other Cool Shirt cooling systems plus vests, hose, drain kits, base unit mounting brackets, and other accessories.
