Unleashing the Power of LYCRA® Fiber: A Q&A with SportPort Active

Unleashing the Power of LYCRA® Fiber: A Q&A with SportPort Active

Q: Did you set out to use LYCRA® fiber technology?

SportPort Active: Absolutely! Our entire Apex collection is made with LYCRA® fiber technology! We believe in using only the highest quality fabrics in our activewear, which is why we incorporate LYCRA® fiber into our athletic clothing. This advanced technology ensures that our garments are not only durable but also exceptionally soft and comfortable.

Q: Why did SportPort Active choose to use fabrics with LYCRA® fiber?

SportPort Active: When we started SportPort Active, we knew we wanted to prioritize quality over quantity. We wanted to create activewear that not only performs well but also provides the utmost comfort and support to our customers. Fabrics with LYCRA® fiber allow us to achieve just that.

Q: What makes LYCRA® fiber so special?

SportPort Active: LYCRA® fiber is the gold standard in spandex technology. Its exceptional stretch and recovery properties set it apart from traditional spandex. This means that our compression garments made with LYCRA® fiber maintain their shape and compression wear after wear, wash after wash.

Q: What is LYCRA® fiber made of?

SportPort Active: LYCRA® is the brand name of the polyurethane or spandex fiber made by DuPont. It is basically a grafted polymeric fiber and the specialty of the fiber is the very high extensibility (up to 400%). Moreover, the fiber is much more costly than other fibers.

Q: How does LYCRA® fiber enhance performance and support in SportPort Active's compression activewear?

SportPort Active: LYCRA® fiber is the active ingredient that delivers unparalleled fit, shape, and comfort. Its superior elasticity and support make it the perfect choice for high-performance activewear. By selecting fabrics with LYCRA® fiber, we ensure that our compression garments provide targeted support to muscles, improve blood flow, and reduce muscle fatigue and soreness.

Q: Is LYCRA® a polyester or cotton?

SportPort Active: LYCRA® is a blend of polyester and urethane, created to be more elastic than polyester alone. Polyester is more chlorine resistant and more colorfast. It also stretches less and is less susceptible to wear and will last longer.

Q: Can you tell us more about the moisture-wicking properties of LYCRA® fiber?

SportPort Active: LYCRA® fiber also boasts excellent moisture-wicking properties, making it breathable and comfortable to wear during intense physical activity. It helps to keep you dry by pulling sweat away from your skin and allowing it to evaporate quickly. This ensures that you stay cool and comfortable, even during your most challenging workouts.

Q: How does SportPort Active maintain quality control over their garments?

SportPort Active: As a boutique brand, we have always put our customers first. We believe in tight quality control, and that's why we carefully craft our compression garments to maximize the benefits of LYCRA® fiber. Our dedication to quality ensures that every piece of activewear we produce meets our high standards and exceeds our customers' expectations.

Q: What sets SportPort Active apart from other activewear brands when it comes to fabric technology?

SportPort Active: What sets us apart is our commitment to using only the highest quality materials. Our compression fabric is made from the finest yarns, combined with LYCRA® fiber, to create the most durable and softest fabric available globally. This attention to detail and focus on fabric technology allows us to provide premium quality activewear that supports your fitness goals and takes your performance to the next level.
