BENEFITS OF COMPONENT LAYERING

 

 

WHY WE HACKED RUNNING SHORTS

Why break with convention? Why split the running short in two, separating outer shell from liner?
In order to bring you the most innovative running gear, we did a teardown on construction,technical fabrics and the underlying functionality of each component.

What we discovered was the question “why” had plenty of compelling answers.
A system of interchangeable running shorts and base liners allowed us to dial in performance,versatility, comfort, practicality, thermoregulation, muscle support and recovery. By developing a system of three different shorts and three base liners, we have nine ways for youto personalize specs and athletic requirements.

It’s a break with design convention, but then who uses a rotary telephone or a manual typewriter?
When running, it’s always a good idea to look farther up the trail. Run forward, not backward.

 

BENEFITS OF BASE LINER AND SHORT SYSTEM

 

INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION

The base liner waistband is larger so the short moves without shifting the base liner.
Shorts have a smooth inside waistband and slide on the base liner without hindrance.

 

02

 

REDUCED FRICTION

The base liners are designed with fewer panels and stitch points are rotated away from friction points.
The shorts drawstrings are placed on the outside of the short to cut friction even more.

 

03

 

PERSONALIZED PERFORMANCE

The base liners have a choice of technical fabrics, performance curves and lengths.
You dial in compression, breathability, moisture wicking and weather response.

 

04

 

VERSATILITY TIMES NINE

All Baseliners work with all our shorts. With nine possible configurations, you multiply versatility and practicality and yes, fashion sense.

 

05

 

WICKING UPGRADE

Tripure waistband wicks moisture and has superior stretch and recovery capability.
By matching base liner and short, you always have the ideal set-up for wicking mastery.

 

06

 

A STRONGER STRETCH

Mechanical stretch fabrics reduce weight. They’re also more durable than spandex fabrics.
By separating short form baseliner, you optimize stretch in 360 degrees.

 

07

 

SIMPLICITY

Separate baseliners mean you wash your shorts less and you pack less when traveling.
Running should be effortless and so should the care and upkeep of your running apparel.

 

 

RUNNING SAN FRANCISCO block by block

  

Fifty Shades of Pavement, Toby Silver’s project

  

Many people run in San Francisco.

Toby Silver is running the entire city of San Francisco, all 1260 miles and 2612 streets.
There are 36 neighborhoods, over 50 hills and nearly endless vistas.

It’s an ambitious, symbolic and perhaps slightly insane project he began to turn over in his mind five years ago.

“It was born out of love for the city and love for running,” says Silver.

“I was training for a long-distance race and my running commutes home from work would take through the financial district up and over Chinatown, Russian Hill, up over Pacific Heights, back through the Presidio district and home.”

As Toby, a tall, outgoing 50 year old, tells it, he started to wander off that beaten path.
One discovery lead to another, one adventure fueled the next and eventually he realized he was on a mission.

“I’m running five to seven days a week with new routes. On weekends, I’m up at 5:30, out of the house, doing a 10 to 15 mile run.
Mostly it’s solo or I get somebody to do the crazy with me. It takes some organization,” says Silver.

There’s a heat map on his Strava account, the red lines fanning out in every direction, up and down hills,
a visual display of streets checked out and territory still to explore.
“I’m seeing every nook and cranny of the city. It’s a tactile connection to the earth and the city.
It’s beautiful and there’s this buzz about being in every part of it.”

The streets connect Silver to the city both present day and past-tense.
“There’s that familiarity and revisiting places I haven’t seen in twenty years. It connects me with my memories,” says Silver.
“I share that with people and they tell me what they know of the city. That makes the routes deeper.”

It’s no surprise that this relationship with the city becomes a kind of mirror.
“There’s a correlation between the city being resilient, the city having gone through changes, and what I can see in myself.
That I can endure,” says Silver. There aren’t any limits to what I can do when I’m healthy.”

Silver already has more than half the city finished and Strava-catalogued. “I’m 60% there.
The Richmond district is done, the West side is done.
Market street kinda divides the city in two — still plenty to explore,” he says, looking over his map.

Just when he’ll cross off that last street is anyone’s guess. Silver imposes no timetable or obsessive end date.
“My goals for the year are run 1500 miles and do over 100,000 feet of climbing. I don’t know how many of those miles are city streets.
I don’t want to be too methodical about it.”

There’s probably a story for every one of those 2612 streets in San Francisco.
“It’s a metaphor for life — there’s always a chance for adventure and a chance for failure. It feels good to feel uncomfortable,” says Silver.
You face your fears or face your own ignorance. You might find something different out there. I’m blown away by what I see.”

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
