As the world continues to feel the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, runners can now ensure they’re protected without compromising their performance, thanks to ASICS’s Runners Face Cover.
An adjustable cord ensures that it fits closely, particularly under the eyes, which should help stop your glasses or shades from misting up. And importantly for a piece of sportswear, it’s washable and quick-drying, so you can easily get it clean and ready to re-use between workouts. The Asics Runner’s Face Cover gets its design by the Asics Institute of Sports Science. Its purpose is to make running more pleasant when you have to keep you face covered during training.
Designed specifically for runners, this innovative face-covering utilises air vents to ensure its users can breathe comfortably, while also keeping them protected. What’s more, is that it also boasts quick-drying material that helps cool the air that reaches the mask’s interior.
Tests show that the ASICS Runners Face Cover is superior in both breathability and comfort in comparison to that of a traditional face covering. It is perfect be it wearer is out for an easy jog or undertaking high-intensity training. (Source: Hypebeast)
ASICS, an acronym for the Latin expression. It is “Anima Sana In Corpore Sano” (“You should pray for a healthy mind in a healthy body”). It is a quote from the Roman satirist Juvenal. The proverb comes to Mr Onitsuka by a wartime friend offering business advice, Mr Kohei Hori. He was, at the time, the Director of Health and Physical Education at the Hyogo Prefecture Board of Education. The words make a deep impression on Mr Onitsuka. Also, inspiring his dedication to making athletic shoes with the aim of nurturing healthy young people through sports. (Source: ASICS)
