We all love chilled air, it’s clean and refreshing. BUT…. cold air in you lungs on a constant basis causes all sorts of issues from reduced lung function to inducing asthma attacks.
So if you love the chill in the air on a crisp sunny morning but hate that cold chill in your lungs on the slopes, or suffer from exercise induced asthma, exacerbated by cold air, a Respro® mask could allow you to breathe easier.
The mask will act as a heat exchanger, warming the air retained from the breath cycle before. In short, it will warm up the cold air before it enters the lungs. The filter used in the image is the SPORTS FILTER with POWA ELITE VALVES. The perfect combination for elevated breathing rates.
I would describe it using the following parallel. A bald man uses a wooly hat in cold weather to keep his head warm. He will soon notice the cold weather when he takes his hat off. Same with the mask and the air going into your lungs.
Mask model: Respro® Ultralight™ Mask
Started cycling a few months ago but in current chilly damp weather I’m finding my sinuses and throat sting when cycling, and on one or two occasions what felt like the start of an asthma attack- not had asthma for years.
What mask would you recommend?

I’ve got my Ultraligh Mask. It’s awesome!!!
The question is where I can get the wooly hat like in the photo? :)
Thank you for your kind words. Sadly the wooly hats have all gone.
Actually we have a similar one… drop us an email http://respro.com/pg/contact-us
It’s not the Sports Filter it’s the Ultra Light Mask available in green black sand etc.

Thank you, Jimmy. The mask is indeed the Ultralight™ Mask. The filter inside the mask though is the Sports Filter.
