Designing a better run, one step at a time.

We want to understand the runner from head to toe and back again. Because everything we learn can help you run longer, faster, and happier. Our gear and shoe science begins with dozens of experts and ends with thousands of runners like you. When lab coats and tank tops come together, it’s a beautiful thing.

First, we hit the lab

Our scientists partner with researchers around the world to study how the body moves when you run, from upper body rotation down to ankle movement. Then we take that hard-won knowledge and put it at the center of our gear design.

Then we ask another set of experts: you.

We interview thousands of runners to find out what they want and need. Other runners push our gear to the limit over hundreds of miles, offering crucial insights along the way. Because after all, the final test is whether it makes you happy.
