Asics Lite Show Apparel

September 18th, 2012

Your evening training run probably won’t find you in a digital world fighting evil, but this “TRON”-looking apparel line from Asics will equip you to tackle your night run in greater safety.

Many runners have trusted Asics for their go-to running essentials for years, but this season the brand has introduced some serious “wow” with their Lite Show line, a revolution in visibility-focused apparel. The collection offers the technical features you look for in running apparel – wicking fabrics, ergonomic flatlock seams, mesh in key sweat zones – and then steps it up a notch in the reflectivity department with reflective stitching and trim.

The strategic placement of these reflective elements results in 360-degree reflectivity and a fast, flashy aesthetic. Many of the reflective seamlines are placed on parts of the body that are in motion when running (like the sleeves of tops and the outer legs of pants), which helps drivers see you from farther away.

Gear up and get out to run…or to fight malevolent characters in a digital domain. Your choice.

Hello Hi-Viz: Brooks Nightlife

September 13th, 2012

Well hello, September, when did you sneak up on us? We’re not sure where fall came from this year, but we’re already starting to notice the changing light and brisker temperatures…and we couldn’t be happier! Early morning runs that finish up just as the sun rises, hot tea or a cuppa joe with a friend post-workout, and that vibrantly alive feeling we get from breathing the crisp autumnal air.

To celebrate one of our favorite seasons, Brooks is adding two new colors to their high visibility ‘Nightlife’ collection. This tried and true lineup includes everything from gloves and arm warmers to cozy mid-layers and jackets – all in bright high visibility colors that help you be seen by motorists in low light conditions. This season Brooks invited a few more colors to the party with a Hi-Viz Orange on the Men’s side and a Hi-Viz pink on the Women’s, so you can be seen and look great on the run and beyond.

Nightlife apparel has been one of our biggest sellers over the past few Fall/Winter seasons, and this collection no doubt helps runners be seen and be safe on darker days. The two new colors are sure to attract a lot of attention – the good kind, when it comes to safety – and also give you more choices for your running gear.

What’s your plan for staying safe on your runs as the days get shorter?
