American sportswear manufacturer Under Armour is launching a mask, the UA Sportsmask, that complies with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) standards to enable athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike to protect themselves and the others from COVID-19 during their workout.
The UA Sportsmask enables training and exercise to continue without risking hypoxia. To that end, this is only possible because of UA’s proprietary three-layer technology: the spacer fabric that’s structured to stay off the mouth and nose for better airflow; the open-cell foam that inhibits passing of moisture and sweat, and the ISO-Chill fabric accompanied with PROTX2, a non-metal anti-microbial technology, that prevents the growth of bacteria on the mask.
Credit to that, the UA Sportsmask is a reusable and water-resistant mask. Not to mention, one that’s equipped with a moldable nose-bridge to hold the mask firmly in place for the user and reduce airflow to the eyes—resolving the issue of having glasses fog up.
Especially when fitness and sports and recreation centers are opening up once again, the UA Sportsmask comes at a time when we need it most. “At Under Armour, we always want to be part of the solution, especially during this extremely challenging time. We specifically designed this mask for athletes and for all of us who want to exercise and train while also keeping ourselves, and those around us, safe,” said Patrik Frisk, the CEO of UA.
The UA SPORTSMASK is available for US$30 in mid-July here.
