Designed by our founder himself using materials sourced from different manufacturers, these technical masks are finally put together and finessed in Singapore, our global headquarters.
Made of a one-piece construction, the PURPOSE Technical Mask is the first mask to shapes and contours itself to your face.
Raised 3D brand profile, reinforced stitching, adjustable soft around-the-ear bands, high air-flow through 1mm foam filter, and ultralight layers of nylon polyamide bring comfort with a high-quality finishing.
Tested in several 5km runs in the Singapore heat and humidity, this mask feels like not wearing anything at all. All day.
"Test scenario: Target was to maintain a comfortable pace at HRZ 2 and HRZ3. Managed 3k at Z2, 7:30 pace and 2k Z3 7:00 pace, with some spikes at sub-threshold Z4 for short distances or on elevations. Overall average HR 156 which is Z2 average, and at average pace of 7:15, which is normal given the fitness state I am in currently.
Impact: No impact to my run nor breathing. Weirdly, I found it easier to breathe with the mouth rather than through the nose. Without a mask, I would usually breathe via the nose because of the filtration. The mask helps to filter the air this time. Is it placebo? I am not sure. No fogging of glasses. I run 100% with glasses, but took them off for these photos. Overall comfortable all the way. I was able to focus on the run and targets set.
Result: I had set a target of 7 to 7:15 at Z2 overall, which was achieved. No restrictions in breathing. No constrictions. I also managed to breathe at the optimal 3/2 pattern - three steps breathing in, two steps breathing out. Average cadence was 174. Almost perfect."
Great quality takes time. The artisans working on these can only produce a limited amount of quantity by hand. These are made because we wanted to bring great fitting, comfortable product to the active masses. Be one of the first.
