US retailer Dick's Sporting Goods has launched a line of performance baselayers that use a special fibre technology designed to enhance the wearer's performance.

The Koppen baselayers, which are available for men and women, feature technology from Celliant that embeds a blend of minerals and other ingredients into the core of the fibre.

These "optically responsive materials" are said to harness the body's energy and re-emit it into the muscle tissue in the form of usable energy and far infrared light.

Effects range from increased oxygen levels in the tissue, to balanced temperature, quicker recovery and healing, and heightened strength and athletic performance, the company claims.

Baselayer tops and bottoms will retail for US$50.
