Kyro Lite: The Apparel Upgrade Men Didn’t Know They Needed
The athleisure trend is a relatively new development in the convergence of fashion and fitness. It is no longer uncommon to see people wearing their workout gear everywhere to perform a wide range of tasks other than exercising.
But if we think about it, generations of Singaporean men have been wearing their SAF-issued singlets, shorts and sport shoes for everything in life – from exercising in neighbourhood parks, to grocery shopping in markets, or just hanging out at home.
As a tribute to these true pioneers of athleisure, Kydra has created a new men’s collection using Kyro Lite, a spin on our signature Kyro fabric.
This series was designed to provide a noticeable upgrade in comfort, performance and appearance for Singaporean men – without compromising the do-it-all versatility and simplicity that they love.
What is Kyro Lite?
The foundation of any collection starts in the choice of fabric. Kydra fans would already be familiar with Kyro, our signature quick-cool fabric that until now has been used exclusively in our Women’s range.
In consultation with Kydra enthusiasts from all walks of life, our development team created Kyro Lite – an adapted version produced specifically for men, that we have introduced into our new collection.
Kyro Lite shares Kyro’s most-loved features, such as being ultra-breathable, quick-cooling and quick-drying. The difference is that Kyro Lite does all of the above, while being surprisingly light and yet durable.
The enhanced lightness makes it super comfortable during physical activities, as well as being the perfect companion for wearing all-day in Singapore’s tropical climate. That’s why we believe that Kyro Lite gear would be ideal replacements for your SAF-issued apparel for all your athleisure needs.
Your SAF Shorts vs Kyro Lite Shorts
As much as the venerable SAF admin pants and PT shorts are popular, their shortcomings should not be overlooked.
For starters, these shorts were not made with specific workouts in mind. Furthermore, the materials used aren’t exactly the most comfortable, nor do they absorb sweat well. This makes them sub-optimal for intense, sweaty workouts – which we all know, are the best kind.
Another major issue is the cut of the bottoms, which do not feature any lining. This increases the likelihood of abrasions during high-intensity interval training (HIIT) sessions, which is unnecessary and totally avoidable.
On the other hand, the new Bolt 4” Lined Shorts II and Elevate 6” Lined Shorts are made with Kyro Lite, which have linings that provide support and hug your legs seamlessly like a second skin, and the side slit design boosts mobility even further.
With sweat-wicking and 4-way stretch, these Kyro Lite-powered shorts will keep you comfortable and performing your best at whatever task you choose to tackle – whether that’s housework, intense HIIT sessions, or training for your yearly Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT).
