From Santa Monica To Las Vegas
The 2018 Relay Collection was inspired by the colors and landscapes of The Speed Project, a 340-mile unsanctioned relay race between Santa Monica and Las Vegas. We sent a team of four men and two women to put the kits through the most extreme wear-test ever in pursuit of the course record. We worked with Ciele Athletics on a Joint Adventure to craft a 5 panel running cap that would offer sun protection from the desert elements, while wicking sweat and drying quickly, leg after leg.

No Rules, Just Running
We partnered with our friends at Ciele Athletics on a Joint Adventure to craft a cap that could beat the heat over 340 miles of running. Inspired by the spirit of The Speed Project, challenging traditional running while celebrating the purity of competition, as well as the awe-inspiring landscape of the country between Santa Monica and Las Vegas, the 2018 LRCaps are vibrant, bold, and pure - borrowing the race’s palette of the Pacific’s deep blues, Death Valley’s golden endless desert, and the vivid reds of sunrises and sunsets.
Made For 340 Miles
Our Relay LRCaps are made from our Bravio fabric, a micro-polyester and elastane blend that’s lightweight, antimicrobial, and soft. This Italian-engineered material is made on special high-gauge knitting equipment that creates small pointelle holes, which create more airflow and allow the fabric to dry more quickly. During The Speed Project, runners reached for these caps on their hottest legs, often dunking them in water or storing them in the freezer for extra cooling.
A Beautiful Battle
The Speed Project 4.0 was a race to remember. In pursuit of the record - and the win - we faced off against The Sun Chasers from France, changing leads over the entirety of the race, including the last 6 hours during which we leapfrogged each other for 70 miles, changing runners every quarter. While we ultimately fell 10 minutes short of the win, our "beautiful battle" drove us to both break the record: 35:49 to 35:59.
