Run at Night – Hoka releases a new night-running collection

Hoka fly at night

Innovative runners Hoka One One dropped new releases of their popular Cavu and Mach shoes, specifically designed towards night running. Understated, stylish looks by day, reflective and visible by night for those winter training sessions and December commuting runs. The SportPursuit team took them for a spin near our London HQ with Hoka ambassador Sarah Astin and loved exploring our favourite urban routes at night.

Chosen by Pros – Helly Hansen LIFALOFT™

Watch an Olympic downhill and you’ll see athletes zoom by in speed suits and minimal gear. But of course, that’s not the only clothing they need. Cold training conditions, long travel days, and diverse events call for a wide variety of equipment and clothing. No surprise that Helly Hansen, ski brand of choice for ski patrollers and Olympians alike, has worked for four years to develop a new standard of insulation that is warm, breathable and capable for every use from home to the mountain. You can check out LIFALOFT™ and the Helly Hansen range here.
