Now the yoga mat is basically TPE, PVC, EVA, NBR foaming material, these materials yoga mat simple analysis is softer, tensile strong, back elasticity slightly worse, non-slip bad, very easy to chip, anti-wear and anti-tearing ability is not enough, it is due to rebound shock absorption is very poor, so in order to make up for the shortage of material, many manufacturers are the cushions are made of very thick 10mm or even thicker size, want to increase the knee or joint protection, This palliative method does not have any good effect; although it is a thick cushion, but because of the softness of the material, step down as if it is stuck, for some of the experience of the exercise is very bad, and easily twisted to the foot; In addition, the characteristics of the material caused the ground to scratch the terrain, a little exercise cushion will be the movement; these cushions are only for yoga routines, and a one-point, softer yoga mat will make you more comfortable. But if the practice is Poweryoga, Flowyoga or ashtangayoga such a large-beating yoga category, then these material cushions are not bad.
Many places are playing fitness Mat logo to sell yoga mat, a lot of laymen see these cushions feel very cheap, and very thick, should be very comfortable, and then buy back, feel on the top of the movement, very unnatural, and 10mm thickness still feel pain, why? Because the 10mm is too soft you press down on only the remaining 1mm, rebound and bad, so you still feel not to protect. Like some of the more formal fitness pad manufacturers use is rubber material, because the rubber material on the rebound than TPE, PVC material is much better, and grip will be much better. What you do on the top does not feel like stretching has any problems and is ideal for fitness enthusiasts. But the pure rubber cushion, the cost is very expensive, moreover the pure rubber mat actually is too hard. So the cushion for the high resilience of the rubber and high-density material synthesis is better.
