Purpose Performance Wear is from Singapore.
We are the first and only triathlon and cycling brand from this country in Southeast Asia. Since we incorporated in 2017, we have been expanding across the region and meeting the needs of triathletes and cyclists.
We design and develop our products in Singapore, spearheaded by Noor Aziz, our founder. With a dDES in Design and more than 25 years of experiences as Head Creative and Creative Director for many international creative agencies and tech companies, we take pride in our product design leadership.
Our production is done in our main manufacturing facility in China. which also manufactures for many other famous international triathlon and cycling brands. We also have several other facilities across Southeast Asia that manufactures different ranges of item.
All our items are developed and designed for the Southeast Asian weather. We are the only brand in the world to focus on performance in heat and humidity as a core feature.
Whilst we do not claim to have the most beautifully designed apparels, no other brands can match us in technical function and performance in heat and body temperature management. We are only scratching the surface of what's possible in performance wear for heat.
Before production, we produce samples and prototypes for testing before we officially launch them and add them to our collection. Also, with each new range we launch, there will be new product innovation and upgrades. Our proprietary technical fabric is called HYPERMESH, with different levels of functionality categorized as PRO, ELITE and ELT and TEAM.
Our main location is online here in this website. Being primarily online means that you, and everyone else in the world, can reach us anytime 24 hours of the day. We are available to serve you always.
Our worldwide fulfillment hub is in Singapore located at: 3791 Jalan Bukit Merah #05-19 The E-Center@Redhill lSingapore 159471
Yes you can on some of the items. As we produce items seasonally, we do not reproduce many of the items that are out of stock. We can reproduce it, only on demand. Look for the Made-on-Order link on items that you can request to be reproduced on-demand. There is a minimum of a 4-week waiting period and there may be a surcharge on it because of the low production quantity.
That means once you see something you like, buy it immediately!
All our products are unisex, unless stated specifically for women only.
We strongly recommend hand wash or using gentle settings on the washing machine. Do not soak for more than 30 minutes as washing detergent can erode elasticity of rubber and fabric as well as cause hot logo printing to come off. After multiple washes, our products should not experience any colour fade either.
We use stronger compression fabric and you will notice the immediate effect on the core (for tri suits) and thighs (for tri suits and cycling bib shorts). The durability of the elasticity will depend on the number of times the kits are used. Because compression fabrics are made primarily of elastic nylons, these will always wear out over time even when lightly used.
