Kymira Golf Strike Polo Review

The world of golf is constantly evolving and one brand that claims to offer something completely unique is Kymira Golf, thanks to its focus on Infrared technology. The human body wastes a lot of energy, but with the Strike polo Kymira Golf has found a way to harness this waste and convert it into infrared. KYnergy Infrared embedded fabrics, like the ones used in this polo, feature specially designed fibres that contain carefully selected natural minerals. 

Infrared is remitted back to the wearer, penetrating approximately 4cms, which causes a number of biological reactions, all of which can have a positive affect on your performance both on and off the golf course. For example the polo we picked can enhance recovery, prevent injury, and protect the wearer from the hot or cold via thermoregulation.

Kymira has also made sure the polo has been designed properly as well. For example it has flatlock seams which reduce chafing and ensure comfort to the golfer. The raglan sleeves then provide a good degree of mobility and flex, allowing the golfer a full range of motion throughout the golf swing. This is also partly down to the elastane fabric used which adds an extra dimension of stretch and shape retention, without impacting on the Infrared technology mentioned above.

As far as how the polo looks, the men’s version has a two-tone stroke design that looks great in three colors, whereas the women’s model has a striped finish and comes in two colors. The brand offers a good range in sizes too, with S-3XL in men’s, and S-XL in the women’s polo.

Golf is a game of marginal gains and golfers that struggle with ongoing niggles should consider giving Kymira Golf apparel a go. Our experience revealed a reduction in soreness and pain both during and after their round so if you need a garment to help your body out on the course, the Strike is definitely a model to consider.
