Right out of the bag, you will notice the distinct difference between Purpose Hypermesh and others. Purpose Hypermesh is a technical fabric uniquely selected, and the suit's construction is specially built for brutal heat and humidity. That’s why it’s crucial to take good care of it.
Let’s go over some tips on how to keep your tri suit in top shape.
1. Wash after every use, avoid fabric softeners:
After every race or training session, it's essential to wash your triathlon suit and running kits to remove sweat and dirt. It's recommended to use a mild detergent and wash them in cold water to prevent any damage to the material. Avoid using fabric softeners, as they can clog the pores in the material and affect its breathability.
2. Do not soak for more than 30 minutes:
High-performance microfibres are extremely sensitive to detergent and soap. The longer the microfibres are soaked, the faster they will break down.
3. Avoid using harsh chemicals:
Triathlon suits and running kits are designed to wick away moisture and keep you cool, so it's essential to avoid using harsh chemicals like bleach that can damage the fabric's breathable properties. It is worth a reminder not to use fabric softeners.
4. Hang dry, do not dry flat:
Avoid putting your triathlon suit and running kits in the dryer as the high heat can damage the elastic fibres and shrink the fabric. Instead, hang dry them in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight. Do not dry flat as this creates unnecessary dampness during the drying process and contributes to the microfibres ageing.
5. Store properly:
Store your triathlon suit and running kits in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Don't fold or compress the suit or kits, as it can affect the elastic fibres and cause creases in the fabric. Instead, store them hanging or flat.
6. Be cautious of abrasive surfaces:
Triathlon suits and running kits are made of delicate materials, so be cautious when putting or storing them near abrasive surfaces like boxes with hard rough textures. This can cause snags and tears in the fabric.
There you have it. We hope that this guide has been helpful in providing you with the information you need to take care of your Purpose Performance Wear triathlon suit and running kits. Whether you're a seasoned triathlete or just starting out, remember to follow the steps listed above for proper care and maintenance of your Purpose triathlon, running and cycling gear so that it functions at its best.
By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your Purpose tri suits, cycling and running kits are always ready for your next race or training session.
