Kit

New Gear: November

From revolutionary tops and shorts, to the most comfy backpack for your runcommute, we bring you the very best new kit

 

The need for speed
Sleek, lightweight, dynamic and a custom fit, Saucony’s Freedom ISO 2 are a dream for neutral runners looking to go fast. These give a natural ride, are flexible in the midsole and feature plush EVERUN cushioning to give maximum energy return. You’ll love the ISOKNIT upper not just for its padded and slipper-like feel, but the performance knit allows your foot to move the way it needs to. These feel speedy!

£140, saucony.com

 

Backing it up
Suffering from back ache? Research has shown people who wear the Percko Lyne Fit T-Shirt experienced improved posture, reducing stress on the spine by opening up the chest, as well as reducing strain on the diaphragm, which improves breathing. Tensors in the top exert pressure on your lower back and shoulders, helping realign your spine. With a 30-day money-back guarantee you can test this to see the difference.

Flatter yourself
Under Armour’s Track Shorts are performance enhancing attire with mineral-infused fabric that apparently absorbs your energy and reflects it back into your muscles. These tick all the boxes: built-in-briefs, silky soft elastic waistband, zipped rear pocket, plenty of reflectivity, four-way stretch for freedom of movement and laser perforations for improved breathability. A weightless fit that is also very flattering.

Fast love
The Lululemon Fast and Free Backpack 3L is a versatile runcommute option that transitions into office bag and keeps you looking stylish on evenings out, too. An adjustable sternum strap hugs the bag close, with waist straps to minimise bounce. There’s plenty of room for your winter kit, two stretchy outer pockets can hold water bottles, internal and external zipped compartments give ample secure storage (plus easy access on the move) and internal compression straps stop your kit jiggling around. It’s an awesome pack.

Security alert
Providing the perfect combo of comfort and low impact support, the Asics Cooling Seamless Bra has no digging or annoying straps. Two perforated strips down the racer back keep you cool, there’s 360-degree perforation front and back, the fabric has stretch and the deep ribbed band ensures this bra doesn’t ride up and feels secure. Layering up just got exciting!

£45, asics.com

 

Stay ahead
Stash the lightweight Runr Atlanta Technical Hat in your pack or belt – the soft peak makes it easy to fold away quickly. The panels are perforated to keep you cool, while wicking fabric moves moisture away from your head. Easy to adjust, it sits comfortably and softly against your skin and the bold design will suit every runr!

£19.95, runr.co.uk
