Why the dark jerseys? Users of Xert are the strongest and toughest by virtue of being totally in-tune with their fitness and abilities and having trained themselves better than everyone else. Black with teal accents reflects this.
Heartbeat Across the Front and Back
Placed just over the heart, this symbol reflects the basis for the Xert models – heart rate. Much of what has been discovered came from analyzing HR data and how power, cadence and speed affects it.
Xert has a number of terms that are different from most of the industry. These include Difficulty, MPA, Focus and Strain Score. During the last year we have been looking for symbols to represent these concepts and came across Adinkra symbols. Originally from West Africa (Ghana area), these symbols resonated with us as interesting and ‘close to the intent’ of our terms. Furthermore when discussing them, we felt that they would be an interesting story for our jersey wearers to tell their friends.
