Xterra and Tesla Sportswear now in the Philippines

Since I’ve been acquainted with XTERRA I’ve always known it as a brand of trail runs and multisport, and to my surprise they also come with their own line of apparel!  And now their compression products are here in the Philippines.

From Mevez Business Ventures Inc. (MBVI):

Mevez Business Ventures Inc. (MBVI) recently introduced in the Philippine market an extensive line of compression sportswear products of Xterra, a global brand in premier technical sportswear used by top triathletes around the world.  MBVI also launched the European brand, Tesla, with both compression products and high quality running shoes.  Tesla sportswear is named after Nicholas Tesla, a designer of customized sportscars, whose name is synonymous with creativity, style and quality.

Compression wear are used by top athletes in virtually every sport today such as triathlon, biking, running, water sports, track and field, baseball, golf, badminton and even as exercise wear.  Compression wear applies the principle of compression bands used in medicine to promote and enhance optimum blood flow and conserve the energy of muscles in a person’s body.  It is also used to prevent the tightening of muscles during cold weather conditions that could lead to muscle cramps.  It is thus used by football, ice hockey and basketball players underneath their jersey uniforms for this purpose.

Because of the technical nature of compression wear and their prohibitively high costs, as well as limited stores offering the products in the Philippines, very few Filipinos use the product in their sports activities.  As a result, the benefits of compression technology have not reached many Filipinos even with the popularity of running, biking and triathlon events in the country today.

MBVI’s aim was therefore to introduce quality, global compression brands at prices that most Filipinos can now afford.  While other products of comparable quality were previously available at prices ranging from ₱4,500 to ₱7,000, MBVI is currently offering its extensive line of Xterra and Tesla compression wear at prices from ₱1,600 for sleeveless triathlon wear to only ₱2,300 for the long tights preferred by runners.  Short sleeve styles are priced at ₱1,700, long tops at ₱2,100, long tops with neckband at ₱2,200 and short tights at ₱2,100.

Xterra and Tesla compression wear are lightweight, keep the wearer always dry as sweat evaporates quickly, has anti-bacterial properties to protect the user from harmful bacteria that attack an athlete during strenuous physical activities (when the immune system is low), provides ultraviolet protection (it has a UPF factor of 50), and is semi waterproof to keep the skin dry such as during the swimming leg of triathlons.

Xterra and Tesla compression wear have become so popular even among non-athletes that the company recently released a new line of casual fit designs to cater to people who wish to wear compression shirts as casual wear to avail of the benefits of the many properties of the products.  The casual fits are priced from ₱1,500 to ₱2, 000.

Xterra recently sponsored triathlon events in Cebu and Laguna (Nuvali) and in the first quarter of 2012, another triathlon event in Cebu.  MBVI is coordinating with the organizers of the upcoming event for Xterra products to be awarded to winners.

Xterra and Tesla compression wear are currently available at select stores of Olympic Village in Metro Manila, Cebu and Bacolod, R.O.X. Bonifacio High Street, and Zalora.com.  Outside of these areas, direct orders are also accepted.
