Intelligent Heat

Intelligent Heat

This technology thinks, so you don’t have to. ALPHAHEAT™ 3.0 is the only available solution that works in harmony with your body to regulate the production of heat within each individual finger, feeding heat to frosty fingers, and conserving power after hands warm up. ALPHAHEAT™ 3.0 uses a proprietary, paper-thin, nanotech polymer film that automatically regulates its own temperature. As your hands get cold, the film gets denser, increasing its electrical conductivity. This change pulls power from a battery to deliver heat to the film and the hands. As your hands get warm, the heat reduces the film’s conductivity which reduces power draw.
 

The Longest Operating Time

The Longest Operating Time

ALPHAHEAT™ 3.0’s localized heat regulation conserves energy use so that a comfortable, toasty temperature can be maintained up to 3 times longer than all other glove brands and technologies. Short operating time is a significant and universal problem with other brands since much of their stored power is used for purposes other than producing heat. The simplicity of the ALPHAHEAT™ 3.0 design resolves this because it does not require the thermostats and other electronic components that sap power and produce bulk. Other technologies waste upwards of 50% of stored power to drive these extraneous components. Compare this to ALPHAHEAT™ 3.0 technology that uses virtually all stored power to produce heat.
 

No Hassle

No Hassle

ALPHAHEAT™ 3.0 strips away the crude complexity of other heating technologies to achieve a pure, simple and intuitive user interface. Other technologies require you to constantly tinker with the temperature control to keep your hands warm and conserve power. And charging the batteries requires you to suffer through a long, intrusive and cumbersome battery extraction process. Chaval Response XRT gloves are as easy to charge as your cell phone. And they self-regulate, so all you have to do is push the “on” button and enjoy the great outdoors. No hassle and worry-free.
 

Light and Flexible

Light and Flexible

ALPHAHEAT™ 3.0 technology is light, ultra-thin, and flexible, so it virtually disappears inside the glove. Enjoy NO restrictions to any dynamic movement of the hand.
 

Non-Intrusive Heating

Non-Intrusive Heating

Wires = Low-Tech. ALPHAHEAT™ technology uses flat, flexible, conductive traces to transmit power inside the glove. This is an optimized solution generally seen in highly engineered products such as cell phones and computer chips to maximize the use of available space. Bulky wires take up space which detracts from the experience and comfort of non-intrusive heating. You shouldn’t feel the electrical components, batteries or wires when you put on your gloves. You shouldn’t feel anything but heat.
 

Built-in glove drying technology

Built-in glove drying technology

For many skiers, the accumulation of some moisture within the glove is commonplace. Until now, the only choices were to either live with the resulting discomfort and unpleasant odor, or purchase a bulky table-top glove drying system. Chaval's tradition of innovation and market firsts continues with our new, patent pending, ACTIVEDRY™ technology. ACTIVEDRY™ is built into our charging system and will simultaneously recharge and dry your Chaval gloves, reducing normal drying time by up to 50%. Reducing drying time not only ensures optimal comfort with every use, but will also help prevent unpleasant odor and bacteria growth. Just attach the gloves to the ACTIVEDRY™ charger and your gloves will simultaneously charge, heat and dry with absolutely no increase in recharge time.
