Spandex is a synthetic fiber with extremely high elasticity. Spandex is similar to lycra or elastane. Spandex can be woven or knitted into a variety of fabric to make the fabric elastic. In wetsuits, spandex is used to make the outside and inside lining flexible by knitting it in combination with nylon or polyester. It 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.
