ASICS has announced a revolutionary face cover for runners.
Created specifically for runners by world-renowned scientists, engineers and designers at the ASICS Institute of Sport Science (ISS), the face cover pairs cutting-edge design with innovative air vents that give runners the room to breathe comfortably, while preventing the spread of droplets.
The face covers quick-drying material helps cool the air that reaches its interior.
Together the unique, innovative design and cutting-edge materials allow runners of all levels to exercise without compromising performance or protection.
Tests show that the face cover significantly improves breathability and comfort with runners feeling little to almost no difference from wearing no mask.
Importantly, this is maintained even when running at higher speed where conventional masks inhibit performance.
Kenichi Harano, Executive Officer and Senior General Manager at the ISS said: “We know how important it is for runners to protect themselves and others when running, but also that many find face covers uncomfortable and restrictive.
“So, we created the ASICS RUNNERS FACE COVER, uniquely designed for runners with cutting-edge technology.
“The innovative design gives runners room to breathe comfortably while performing at their physical peak.”
