CARDIFF, Wales, Aug. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Makura Sport is thrilled to announce that it has partnered with Sidelines Sports, a Canadian premium sporting goods wholesaler and distributor, to make its mouthguards available to customers and athletes throughout Canada. Sidelines Sports carries and distributes convertible versions of all of Makura's original products—TOKA™, IGNIS™, TEPHRA MAX™, and LITHOS™—as well as Makura's newest mouthguard, the KYRO PRO™.

Makura's mouth-adapted and ready-made mouthguards have been designed and tested to ensure they keep all athletes both safe and comfortable regardless of their age, sport, or level. Its mouthguards have been impact and innocuous tested by an independent third-party based in the United Kingdom, and are fully CE approved and certified. They boast proprietary technologies like SHOKBLOKER™ outers, GELFORM™ liners, BOIL & BITE™ fit, and ORTHO CHANNEL for use with fixed braces and come standard with light, durable, drop-tested cases.

The KYRO PRO® is Makura's entry-level mouthguard. It incorporates features like a SHOKBLOKER™ outer for protection, an AIRTHRU channel for comfort, and SLIPSAFE pads for security, but with a simpler design. It is available either clear or black and strapped or strapless. The KYRO PRO® is currently available exclusively in Canada. It will become available to wider markets in August 2018.

"This is an exciting evolution for Makura," said Robert Davies, Managing Director of Makura Sport. "We have spent years developing our brand and reputation in Europe, but our goals have always been to think bigger and set Makura apart as the mouthguard of choice for athletes around the world. Entering the North American market is another exhilarating and important step in that direction."

"We are excited to work with Makura to expand its presence in Canada and make it the preferred choice everywhere one Canadian athlete at a time! We are looking forward to a great long-term business relationship with Makura Sport," said Bruce Behrend, Owner of Sidelines Sports.
