Last year we reviewed the Bear Mattress and found that it was a great addition to any runner’s lifestyle. One of the things we liked the most about the mattress was that it was designed by athletes, with athletes in mind, by a charitable company operating entirely online.
This year, Bear Mattress has announced a new version for athletes to rest their bodies on. We reached out to Scott Paladini, CEO and Founder of Bear for information about their new and improved product.
“Bear Hybrid is a new luxury hybrid mattress from Bear,” Paladini explained. “The comfort of the mattress’ specially-designed performance foams, coupled with the proven benefits of Celliant and the support of more than 1300 coils, makes Bear Hybrid a great mattress choice for those looking to recover faster, and achieve a superior sleep.”
With many runners moving quickly from strength to tempo training to race day, recovery is important. “Bear Hybrid features a hand-tufted, quilted plush top incorporating Celliant’s FDA Determined Infrared Yarn Technology with a combination of cooling performance foams and an adaptive, individually encased spring system.”
When asked about the difference between the old and new, Paladini stated “Just like the Bear Mattress, the Bear Hybrid is engineered specifically with athletes, and active people, in mind. The use of FDA-Determined Celliant Infrared Yarn textile technology plus the combination of coils and foams make it unlike anything else in the market.”
This unique blend of cooling technology and comfort is what brings this mattress to the forefront of the sleep industry and the recovery aspect makes it particularly of interest to endurance athletes. With recovery being a stronger focus for the fitness industry than ever before, we can’t forget about the benefits of a good old fashioned, good night’s sleep.
“Whether you are a casual fitness lover, or professional athlete, sleep is imperative to your training. Choosing a mattress that helps aid in recovery while you sleep is essential to waking up ready to perform the next morning.”
Another great perk is that this mattress is Made in the USA, handcrafted just to the north of us in Wisconsin. “The Bear Hybrid is handcrafted in Wisconsin, and ships directly to consumers in a box the size of a mini-fridge,” Paladini said. “Similar to the namesake Bear Mattress (which continues to be available), the Bear Hybrid utilizes CertiPUR-US Certified foams, includes free shipping and a 100-night risk-free trial.”
