For qualifiers only, BQ19 is an ultra-lightweight singlet that’s as honed as you are on race day. The body is cut from an Italian-made, breathable and quick-drying mesh, and backed by an even lighter open mesh for increased breathability. It's finished with bonded seams and fully sublimated details.
The Tracksmith BQ Singlet is reserved only for those who’ve both qualified and registered for the 2019 Boston Marathon. Quantities are limited.
We launched the BQ Singlet in 2014 and every year we've worked to dial up the technical properties for race day. BQ19 is made from a polyester mesh by Borgini – the masters of Italian performance fabrics – that’s lightweight (90 grams/square meter), soft, moisture-wicking and dries in a flash. We combined it with a more open mesh polyester/elastane blend on the side and back panels for added breathability in these high sweat zones. Fully bonded seams keep the singlet feeling light-as-air and prevent any rubbing.
Race day details matter. We kept all of our signatures from the heritage-inspired sash to the BQ insignia. But rather than sewing and flocking these elements on top of the fabric, we employed a technique called sublimation to print them directly into the fabric. It preserves the aesthetic while reducing the weight and chance of chafing.
