Since 2017, PURPOSE PERFORMANCE WEAR’s achievements were not that it was the first brand from Singapore, maybe even Southeast Asia, to launch high-performance technical apparels triathlon, running, and cycling space. But that it achieved so many accolades within a few short years. Still, with a small yet growing audience, PURPOSE has accomplished so much year on year that it’s a wonder what else it can do with a large user base.

It has been 2 years since the Ironman 70.3 Desaru Coast event was scheduled to take place, and many had hoped that the race would finally happen this year. Although indeed, the turnout was lesser than the total number registered to compete, the event was nonetheless a success for PURPOSE. With many participants and racers wearing our kits, this is perhaps a sign of how the brand has remained strong on everyone’s mind even through the pandemic.
Tendonitis 3 weeks before and food poisoning the night before a big race is usually enough to put someone off. But not for Arjun, completing every triathlete in Southeast Asia’s comeback race with a strong 4th in category and 11th overall.

How much of those improvements are attributed to his tenacity and vision to be a better athlete and PURPOSE? We’ll never know. What we know is, that we are extremely glad to come along on his journey.
Another athlete who swears by PURPOSE, Philipp only started triathlon less than 5 years ago. A pure vegan, Philipp chose a plant-based lifestyle because of environmental, health and ethical reasons.

Like all users who are new to any product, Josiah has at first, some reservations about the quality of the PURPOSE cycling kits. Understandably so, because being a 3-time Olympian, Commonwealth Gold Medalist, and former Keirin World Number 1, he’s been exposed to many cycling kits. No doubt some are from the world’s most reputable brands.
