Performance gaming wear might sound like an oxymoron, but with the rise of the professional competitive gaming industry, the advantages that such clothing offer are impossible to ignore. KontrolFreek's new line of performance gaming wear is thus a harbinger of a potential slew of new products that will come as professional gaming continues to gain visibility and popularity.

In the world of pro sports, every minute performance advantage is sure to be seized. Athletes will sleep in hyperbaric oxygen chambers, use VR to train reflexes, and wear compression gear that increases their aerodynamics by fractions of a second. It should hardly be surprising that such efficiency considerations have made their way into e-sports as well.

KontrolFreek's performance shorts are similar in cut to basketball shorts. Their distinguishing factor is the panels running down each side. These panels are made of 'DRYV,' a moisture-wicking fabric, that allows gamers to quickly dry their hands.
