LYCRA Sport® and LYCRA Xtralife® fabrics are specially designed for sports that require a combination of lightness, breathability, muscle support and freedom of movement. The LYCRA® fibre provides comfort, support, dimensional stability and durability. Always combined with other fibres, it provides unmatched stretch and elastic resilience. This fibre can be stretched up to seven times its initial length before returning to its initial shape and size when no longer under tension, hence its unique assets. LYCRA Sport® or LYCRA Xtralife® is found in most of our elasticated fabrics (XTENS® and ThermoXTENS®)
