Split shorts have long been a running staple. Like a racing flat, they come out when it’s time to go fast. But there's a good chance the ones you're wearing now are clingy and don't stretch. As your effort increases, you want your shorts to get out of the way. Our new Twilight Split Shorts do just that, thanks to the extremely comfortable Bravio fabric.
Carrying gels on race day and long training runs can be a challenge for non-professional runners. You’ve probably seen the two most common solutions – a series of external pockets that look like a fanny pack or, the DIY version, pinning gels to your waistband. There is a better way. Our unique internal pocket system has three easy-access slots. Putting the pocket on the inside of the short keeps the external aesthetic clean while also holding the gels tight against your body to reduce bouncing.
A BETTER LINER
A running short is only as good as its liner. We used a durable quick-dry fabric that won’t budge no matter how much you push the pace. Because the best running clothes have to start with the best materials.
Our Twilight Split Shorts are made from our Bravio fabric, a micro-polyester and elastane blend that’s lightweight, antimicrobial, soft against the skin, and stretches and recovers to match your stride. This Italian-engineered material is made on special high-gauge knitting equipment that creates small pointelle holes, which allows for more airflow and for the fabric to dry more quickly. The result is a short you won’t even notice.
STRIDE FOR STRIDE
Ruben Sanca tested the Twilight Split Shorts along the punishing hills of Bartlett Damn Road, just north of Scottsdale, Arizona. Equally as punishing was his workout: 6 x 1 mile with 2 minutes rest. Pushed throughout by Mike Carlone, Ruben was able to average 5:30 pace. It was a perfect training session in his build up to the Boston Marathon.
Our Twilight Collection is inspired by the New England tradition of twilight meets, early season races designed to test fitness and fortitude. These races provide an opportunity to ditch formal uniforms and giant logos and fly under the radar.
