New KONTAQ Sports Bra Provides Solution for Female Athletes

PITTSBURG, Kan., April 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For decades, female athletes have been secretly trying to find a good solution to prevent breast pain and injury during sports contact. Many have even tried wearing two sports bras to provide an extra layer of padding and support in case they get hit by a ball, elbow, kick or other equipment while playing or working out.

As a result, KONTAQ, a leading innovator in sports apparel and gear, engineered the KONTAQ Sports Bra to help protect female athletes from breast pain and injury during sports contact. Until now, female athletes had limited options: wear an ordinary sports bra with no contact protection; wear a standard padded bra; wear two sports bras; or wear a sports bra with uncomfortable hard plastic inserts. The KONTAQ Sports Bra is changing all that.

The patented KONTAQ Sports Bra is designed to provide an extra layer of protection from breast pain and injury caused by sports contact. It features a revolutionary contact-absorbing material called FlexShieldTM that is flexible, breathable and comfortable. The removable FlexShield inserts slide into double-panel pockets and contour naturally around the breast. Unlike wearing two sports bras, FlexShield dissipates up to 90% of the force of impact during sports contact.

The FlexShield inserts inside the KONTAQ Sports Bra provide an added layer of protection and support. They can also be removed if the user does not desire them for the day, therefore providing the user with the choice of what they need, when they need it.

"We have interviewed many female athletes about the need for contact protection and have found that many are wearing two sports bras to protect themselves. Layering two bras doesn't dissipate contact energy – and now you are paying for two sports bras instead of one. We engineered the KONTAQ Sports Bra to provide a comfortable, stylish and effective solution for female athletes who participate in contact sports, as well as fitness workouts," report Tyler Harrell, KONTAQ President.

The KONTAQ Sports Bra is designed to look and feel great. If features premium moisture wicking fabrics, comfort banding, a breathable mesh back and fashion stitching. In addition to contact absorbing protection, the KONTAQ Sports Bra is designed to support breasts to reduce impact, bounce and movement during sports. The bra provides the optimum level of comfort, support and protection – and doesn't inhibit movement or sports performance.

Designed and manufactured by KONTAQ, Inc. in Pittsburg, Kansas, the KONTAQ Sports Bra was engineered and perfected for three years before being manufactured. The company interviewed athletes, spoke with coaches, consulted with experts, performed countless tests and perfected several rounds of designs to deliver the most comfortable, effective and attractive contact-absorbing sports bra on the market.

The KONTAQ Sports Bra retails for $69.95 and is available for purchase at www.KONTAQ.com.
