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.
Our distance running shorts sell out faster than we can refill them. And now, you can pre-order our 3 new colours at a special price. We call’em Andaman, Calypso, and Nile. Pre-orders start shipping 2nd Jan 2024.
Our oceans and landfills are unhappy homes
of discarded single-use items, Industrial
plastic, and fabric scraps. This waste will stay
forever. Is it possible to put this waste to use?
Yes, it is. We partnered with Jersey Lomalina, a mill based out to Italy, for a luxurious performance fabric Econyl that is completely regenerated from Ocean and Landfill waste. Super-light, silky soft, and swift drying say hello to a new generation of sustainable performance fabrics.
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.
RETURNS AND EXCHANGES
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.
We want to minimise our environmental impact and have been a work in progress. We always skipped plastic, and since June 2020, we started shipping our orders minus extra tags, invoices, and content that often ends up in trash.
