If you are a fan of trail running and haven't been living in a cave, then you have probably seen some of the just insane videos Salomon has been putting out featuring some of their top runners and their youth team. Feeling a little inspired by this, we got a chance to take one of their highest end trail runners, the Speedcross Pro, out for a spin. We hammered them ...

Apparel Review: Saucony Evolution Sportop

A couple months back we had a chance to review several of Saucony’s RunWarm and RunDry pieces and they definitely leaned toward the late winter weather, but today we wanted to show off their Evolution Sportop. It has definitely been designed for these early spring mornings in hopes to provide you with a nice thin layer of warmth coupled with their RunDry technology. This quarter-zip style is a staple in ...

Gear Review: Addaday Type S Calf Stretcher

When it comes to running, it goes without saying that from your hips to your toes, your legs need to be in the best possible condition to keep you moving forward. Now that may seem like Running 101, but you'd be surprised at how many people fail to adequately strengthen and stretch the various muscles in their legs. More often than not; calf, achilles, knee, and even hip injuries are ...

Tech Review: Monster iSport SuperSlim Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

I think my new fascination might be with headphones and in particular, wireless headphones. I've had too many mishaps with wires while running on the road and trail or even on my bike, all ending in disastrous results. In this edition, I got a chance to take a look at the iSport SuperSlim Bluetooth headphones from Monster, a company that was previously more known for its cables, but who has since moved into ...

Shoe Review: Brooks Ghost 8 GTX

In this review, we turn our attention to one of the long-standing leaders in running, Brooks. In our effort to continually run in our ever challenging Pacific Northwest weather, we are reviewing the new Brooks Ghost 8 GTX. The goal, as it is with any all weather shoe, is to let you run as you would normally, but to keep the weather out. And when someone makes a claim that, then we ...

Apparel Review: Brooks LSD Thermal Vest

Brooks is definitely one of the biggest names in the running market and we heaped praise on some of their spring and summer apparel offerings last year, but the Fall and Winter months call for a little more warmth and a little more visibility. To counter this, Brooks has released the LSD Thermal Vest which is designed to bridge that time between cold and deep freeze. The LSD Thermal Vest is ...

Tech Review: Jaybird X2 Bluetooth Headphones

I have long struggled with bluetooth headphones and when the chance to review the new Jaybird X2s came up, I jumped at the chance. If you're like me, then you probably have a pair of wired headphones that you keep set aside for running. At some point, more often than not, they end up in a tangled mess that you spend the first five minutes before your run untangling. They ...

Tech Review: Recon Jet Smart Eyewear

Wearable technology has always felt slightly out of reach for the performance athletic world and sure many companies have tried, but for the most part what we have been left with are trendier GPS watches, fitness trackers, and heart rate monitors. So when Recon Instruments released their Recon Jet smart eyewear, we wrote a quick preview about their potential to disrupt a relatively untapped area of the market, specifically eyewear. ...

CSX Compression Socks

Clothing Review: Champion CSX Compression Sport Socks

Compression technology has been taking off in the recent years, we've all seen it races all those calf sleeves and socks that more and more runners seem to be wearing. It's almost become a staple on the ultra scene where almost every one out of two athletes is wearing them. We've all questioned how much they can really help and you've probably weighed trying them on yourselves, so we went ahead and did ...

Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie

Clothing Review: Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie

The gear team had a chance to tackle some runs with the new Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie and this jacket is honestly just insane. It is listed as super light, but when you first pull it into your hands its almost a little alarming at how little it weighs. You really begin to question how high the quality is and how much its going to do for you, and then ...
