Coach James’ favourite items of kit are the Marathon shorts.
The Marathon Speed Shorts are designed for those who favour a half tight over the longer distance. We revisited our best-selling lightweight racing half tights and allied them with our proven gel storage system to provide supreme functionality, without compromising speed or adding bounce.
To begin, we utilised our in-house-developed, ultra-lightweight French woven fabric, tailored skin-tight fit and laser cut hems, giving the shorts their barely-there feel, so you’ll hardly notice you’re wearing them until your energy level dips. Next, we targeted storage and stability at speed: The large rear pocket swallows up to four gels, whilst loops on the waistband store two more, giving you the ultimate on-run carry over this iconic distance.
An on-going design project, the Race Shorts are uniquely engineered and further refined for out-and-out performance.
We set out to craft the lightest and most advanced race shorts for uncompromised speed and comfort when it matters most. Version 5.0 continues to build on this aspiration, making sure our classic split short silhouette is bang up to date with laser-cut hems, an integrated waistband and a game-changing liner that’s shaped, bonded and soft against the skin. They’re built in a new, highly technical, ultra-lightweight, 4-way stretch fabric that tops the scales at 70g in size M – so light you’ll barely know you’re wearing them.
Fit for race day, we’ve experimented with a streamlined design that favours minimal weight and bulk, hence just two small pockets for essentials.
