There isn’t another gi on the market that we are more excited about than the Kingz Noboru Bamboo Gi. While we knew during the development stages that we were going to produce something special, this gi has surpassed all of our expectations.
An incredibly strong fiber, with natural anti-microbial properties and four times the absorbency of cotton, bamboo was made to be put into a gi (if you ask us). However, the first experimental bamboo gis years ago got a bad rap. Since then, the bamboo fiber technology has dramatically improved, presenting us with a new high-tech bamboo and cotton fabric mix that many claim to be far superior in feel and performance than the traditional cotton.
Both the 550 GSM pearl weave jacket and 12 oz pants of the Kingz Noboru Bamboo kimono are made from high quality 60/40 bamboo/cotton fabric, which has incredible strength and durability, yet has a natural sheen and is silky soft to the touch - perfect for those with skin sensitivities. Bamboo fiber is also four times more absorbent than cotton. The porous qualities of bamboo fiber give it excellent, natural wicking properties that keeps you cool and dry by absorbing and evaporating sweat rapidly. Also, bamboo contains a naturally occurring anti-microbial agent, "kun", that prevents bacteria from cultivating on it. So not only does this keep you odor free during a long, sweaty training session, but should you forget your gi in your trunk afterward, the next day you won't be fighting to get rid of that steamy gi smell (you know the one we're talking about).
In addition to an amazing fabric, we have brought you a beautifully understated design, with high definition embroidery and distinctive "Bend Not Break" logos, specially made for this gi. Every detail was carefully considered, even down to the name "Noboru", a Japanese word that when translated into English encompasses the ideals of "virtue" and "ascension" - in other words, "to rise with nobility and dignity".
