The Recore mattress is a performance mattress made in Canada and exclusively for sale in Canada. It features some really cool material. Graphite latex foam, a cover made with antimicrobial fabric and cooling gel foam. These materials usually command a price premium but you can get all this in the mattress at $949 Canadian for a queen size. And that’s before any discounts.
Overview of the Recore Bed
The Recore mattress comes shipped in a box straight to your door. It also comes with a 120-night trial where you can try it out in your house for free and if you aren’t happy with it, you can return it for a full refund.
Here’s a quick video overview of the mattress and its features.
How Much Does the Recore Bed Cost?

Construction of the Recore Mattress
Here are the construction details as listed on their website.
Next-generation cooling technology, designed specifically for active Canadian lifestyles. The channeled top layer of graphite latex foam works with the cooling gel layer below, acting as a thermal superhighway. Excess heat is transported quickly away from your body towards open-air channels where heat and body moisture can escape.
Supporting you and your body at night helps you achieve greater results during the day. Recore’s™ three layers of performance foam are calibrated to a firmness fit for side, back, and stomach sleepers. The support system is designed to provide overall structural integrity, while also encouraging proper spinal alignment by preventing excessive sinkage.

My Recore Mattress Findings
Starting from the top, the stretch knit cover provides for maximum contouring and breathability. It also has a zipper so you can remove and wash it.
The Recore has just the right amount of sink to it so that it’s truly versatile enough for any sleeping postion. It’s also easy to switch positions at night given the top layer of foam is very responsive.
Here’s a look a how much my 14lb. bowling ball sinks into the mattress.
Here’s another view to show you sinkage and how much edge support you can expect.
This mattress has a zippered cover which is common for roll packed mattresses but it is positioned so that you don’t have to lift up the mattress to access it. This makes it much easier to remove and wash if you need to. Although, I strongly recommend a mattress protector.
In the video below I show you how much motion transfer to expect on the mattress. As you can see the other bowling ball hardly moves but the one that I dropped actually has some bounce which is rare for a foam mattress.
When you unzip the cover you will see that the top layer of foam has some holes in it which provides more breathability and air flow.

Here’s a side view of the layering. The middle layer is the cooling gel layer followed by the base support foam.
Here’s a video showing how each layer reacts. The graphite latex top layer is the most responsive and the layer of cooling gel foam below it provides great pressure relief. The base layer is standard and provides a stable surface.
My Recore Bed Recommendation
The Recore mattress is a perfect choice for someone new to memory foam. You get all the pressure relieving benefits of foam but without the drawbacks of sleeping hot. Without springs you don’t have to worry about motion transfer either. With this mattress, there’s really no reason you would need or want springs.
I highly recommend this mattress to couples that have different sleep positions and have problems with partner disturbance at night. The Recore will certainly solve that problem. If it’s been a while since you have been in the market for a new mattress, you will be pleasantly suprised at how far foam technology has come and you get it all in the Recore.
