WHY I TRADED A BIKE FOR AN ORGANIC MATTRESS
A simple trade changed our sleep for the better in both comfort and health.
It's a classic case of the shoemakers family going without shoes. After many, many requests to change our mattress, that I may or may not have paid attention to, my husband (owner of Cycle Nyron, Montréal Sud-Ouest) threatened to take back my new road bike - not just any road bike but "THE" road bike.

He was waking up completely congested each morning and was convinced that the pollutants in our old mattress were the culprit.
WHAT IS LATEX
Sleeptek Latex is derived from the "milk" or sap from the Hevea Brasiliensis rubber tree found in Malaysia & Sri Lanka. Rubber destabilizes when it is kept too long and while most producers add mass amounts of chemicals to stabilize it for transport. Sleeptek manufactures the latex where the sap is harvested, avoiding the chemicals altogether. In fact, at Sleeptek, sap harvested in the morning is moulded into sheets of latex by the afternoon - all without the use of chemicals, creating the purest latex possible.
WHY CHOOSE LATEX
A latex mattress provides optimal sleeping conditions for the human body. The durability and elasticity of the organic latex makes it ideal mattress material. Latex provides flexibility for comfort and the perfect amount of support for a healthy spine = less pressure points, less aches and pains! Organic latex is extremely efficient in regulating moisture and temperature for those looking for a cooler sleeping environment. Last but not least, latex is naturally resistant to dust mites and other allergens.
