Lycra is a synthetic fiber with extremely high elasticity. Lycra is similar to Spandex, the more common name for elastane. It can be woven or knitted into a variety of fabric to make the fabric elastic. In wetsuits, lycra is used to make the outside and inside lining flexible by knitting it in combination with nylon or polyester. Lycra can also be used in fabrics to make rashguards, also known as lycras, to protect the skin against UV rays while surfing. Clothing used for cycling often uses a type of these fabrics too.
