LOS ANGELES, March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Manduka, creators of high-performance, sustainable yoga gear designed by yogis and trusted by teachers worldwide, released its first fitness-forward Manduka X Mat today, a high performance, professional quality yoga mat designed for cross training athletes and yogis. This mat is a must-have for every athlete's collection of workout gear. The X Mat is the highest quality cross training mat at the lowest price point.
The X Mat is a durable yoga mat with high-density shock absorption to provide both joint protection and comfort. Its highly textured surface welcomes sweaty, high performance workouts by combating slippage and bacteria with its hygienic closed cell construction. The mat is free of chemical solvents and manufactured in an energy-efficient facility, aligning with Manduka's mission to prove that sustainable design does not lower performance grade — all at an accessible price point.
"We created this mat to support the versatile fitness workout regimens of yogis, athletes and fitness fans with the growing trend of crossover workouts," said Joanne Sessler, VP Product & Design of Manduka. "The X Mat is the only workout mat in the space that unifies eco-conscious design, high quality performance and incredible grip, making it easier to customize your workout."
This new addition joins the Manduka suite of mats that began over 20 years ago with the signature Black Mat PRO — one of the few mats on the market offering a lifetime guarantee. Along with PRO, eKO and welcOMe, the Manduka X Mat expands Manduka's diverse mat assortment for all levels of yoga practitioners.
The X Mat will be available at manduka.com, local yoga studios and international retailers for $58 US MSRP. This summer, the X Mat will be available REI and Dick's Sporting Goods. To view and purchase the new mat, please visit: www.manduka.com
