Qore Performance builds the world’s first modular athletic base layer system that enhances human performance and improves hydration. Our innovative Wearable Hydration Technology enables the body to offload heat at the pulse points, helping athletes get the most out of their body and stay in the game. Headquartered in Fairfax, VA, all Qore Performance products are designed and built in the U.S.A.
Our mission is simple: to actively enhance human performance with wearable technology.
Inventor Justin Li initially thought to combine first aid science with athletic base layers as a way of solving his own problems while on duty as a sworn law enforcement officer in Southern California. With no lightweight and portable solutions available to counter the temperature extremes of a high desert alpine environment, Justin invented a versatile product to get a competitive advantage when faced with austere conditions and difficult missions.
We have set out to extend this initial concept to give users a competitive advantage where none previously existed. Our proprietary technology helps the body offload heat at the pulse points by cooling the blood that flows through major arteries. Being able to offload heat efficiently with less sweat and aspiration improves hydration and enhances performance, both in longevity and intensity.
Our gear has been battle-tested and endorsed by elite users across the spectrum, from hunters to professional athletes to high-end tactical operators. In October of 2014, Qore Performance Technology was identified by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as viable to help support Ebola relief workers control their temperatures through Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the extreme conditions of West Africa.
As temperatures increase and you work harder, it becomes difficult for your body to stay cool. As your temperature rises, your body labors to cool itself through heavy breathing and sweating, which causes dehydration. Dehydration is an athlete’s worst enemy – it leads to fatigue, lack of focus, increased injury risk, and weaker overall performance. Until now, the only means to fight dehydration was to exit the playing field and replenish fluids on the sideline.
Qore Performance Wearable Hydration Technology is the key to improved hydration for athletes. Built on tried and true science taught to first responders, HydraQore Inserts accept heat from your body’s blood to help keep your temperature from rocketing upwards as you perform. By targeting the places on your body where the large quantities of blood flow closest to the skin, our products help you off-load this heat and maintain your hydration, maximizing performance. Pulse point precision allows our technology to work efficiently without impeding your movement.
