English term or phrase: performance underwear
"Wireless man" will be able to put on his performance underwear, hop in his SUV and power himself up to the top of a Colorado mountain peak.

German translation:Performance Unterwaesche
Explanation:
Is Wireless Man some kind of superman or electric man? If so, is it the undies that make him the super hero? So, instead of wearing the undies during the performance, does the underwear enable him to <perform>? If that's the case, and wireless man makes you kinda think that that's the case, then it might be something like <performance underwear>, >performance> here in the sense of <Vorfuehrung> or <happening> (art) or, well, being wireless. DUDEN recognizes Performance in this sense.
<Unterwaesche> doesn't sound particularly cool in German, so I wonder if you might want to use the original term as a whole (depending on the nature of your text, some Denglish might be acceptable).

HPU , Performance-Unterwaesche


Explanation:
What is "performance" underwear?...
Performance underwear is specially designed to rapidly transfer moisture away from the body during active times. Additionally, the garments are manufactured to warm or breath on demand to keep the body cooler when it's hot and warmer when it's cool.

Wenn Sie sich draußen wohlfühlen wollen, geht es
nicht ohne die richtige Funktionsunterwäsche.
JEANTEX High Performance Underwear [HPU]
reguliert das Körperklima und verhindert Auskühlung
und Konditionsverlust. Die Spezialfasern halten die
Hautoberfläche trockener und wärmer als bei her-
kömmlicher Baumwollunterwäsche.
JEANTEX [HPU] ist das ideale "Darunter" unter jeder
funktionellen Outdoorbekleidung.

Powerstretch- oder Funktionsunterwäsche


Explanation:
Über Google gefunden. Unterwäsche, bei der die Feuchtigkeit nicht von der Faser gespeichert wird. In dem erwähnten Kontext gefällt mir "Powerstretch-Unterwäsche" besser.
