C3fit offers the most precise compression and degree of comfort. This was achieved through trial and error and the invention of the crescent design. The crescent design allows for optimal movement at the knee.
C3fit products aim for a fit so comfortable that you forget that you even have them on. To achieve this goal some components are reduced to lessen seams, while maintaining a three dimensional design. Adjustments are drawn on a prototype to ensure the accuracy of compression and elasticity by testing which will lead to perfection.
Prototypes and finished C3fit products are human fitted and 3D scanned. 200 to 300 thousand areas on the body are scanned to gather sufficient information. Legs were scanned before and after wearing C3fit, and in the morning and afternoon, to accurately evaluate effects in swelling reduction.
A subject running on a treadmill in a climate-controlled room is filmed using a high-speed camera to test product performance. Several markers are attached to analyze muscle movements. Such data helps with both the analytical and subjective study of the C3fit gear.
In the Oyabe city of Toyama prefecture is the Goldwin Technical Center, where C3fit was invented. Goldwin continues its 60 plus years tradition of inventiveness by actively developing new highly quality products in this center.
