Humidity from hell, and each new lap hotter than the last. Welcome to long distance running in the subcontinent. We wanted a running short that's light, and swift drying over hours while having the right pocket design for stocking needs of distance running. Cue the Athlos Distance Running Shorts, our most technical shorts yet.
Distance running shorts have been a design challenge over the years. A great pair of running shorts dries swiftly on the go, offers freedom of long strides, and tops it with max comfort. That's the shorts we wanted to build. The Econyl fabric feels fast owing to its swift drying fiber and the silky soft texture. The lightweight knit feels agile, and the 4-way stretch ensures you feel unrestricted even on your longest stride.
Runners have certain stocking needs for race days and long endurance runs. Gels, cash, keys, and the occasional cellphone. Relax, we have it covered. 2 unique side- pockets to store gels. One zippered back-pocket for keys and the 4th one on the liner - built to support your 5 inch smartphones holding them tight against your body. And all of this comes minus any bounce or bulk.
What good is a running short without a good liner? The Distance shorts comes paired with a liner that provides support at right places while getting out of your way. Its next to nothing hand-feel and firm support makes you forget you are wearing anything, in a good way.
We're pretty confident you'll love the distance shorts. If for some reason it falls short of your standards after you receive them, we will arrange a free pickup and issue a full refund. We'll also arrange a pickup if you want to exchange it for a different size.
The best way to test a running shorts is to put it through a hard run - if there are any issues they will surface. So before the release we did a pre-sale among our existing users. Here is some of the feedback we have received.
I have been using these shorts for last 3 years & I have felt comfort & convenience .the inner support is very good to keep ur cellphone & quality of fabric is excellent
Best running shorts I have got, did Delhi Half marathon in this short and just enjoyed the run
The fitting is awesome and material fantastic. Its so light and effective. Mobile holder is great. One can actually concentrate only on running handsfree. It feels great and value for money.
I have been using Athlos Distance Running Shorts for almost 3 years now. since I started using them in my running, I had not used any other brand of shorts since than, I am very comfortable in these shorts, material and feel is very good, pockets are very thoughtfully designs, I can carry car key, energy gels, cards and my iPhone very comfortably while running.
I must have run around 3000 KMs in these shorts (Total of 5 shorts), recently I completed my Mumbai Full Marathon in Distance running shorts.
One recent change which I observed was in Inner mobile pocket sometimes when u run at very fast face mainly during interval runs mobile pops out of the pocket which was not there in older pockets, so I had given my feedback and I think Athlos has taken it positively, Overall pockets are still good as I Ran full Marathon in those same pockets with my iPhone in those and it did not fall throughout the run.
I am really happy with overall customer services.
I have been using most of the Athlos product including Different T shirts, Socks, Cycling T Shirts, shorts.
If anyone looking for comfortable shorts for running with many functionalities than Athlos Distance Shorts is the right fit.
