Running happy shouldn’t stop when the daylight hours fade. But staying visible is key to staying safe and high-tech run kit often comes with a hefty price tag. The Karrimor X Lite range is the latest kit on the market offering 360-degree reflective visibility without costing a small fortune, so The Running Bug decided to give it a spin. From the lightweight hooded running jacket to the reflective running tights we were pleasantly surprised, as both style and comfort boxes were ticked.
Slick X Lite reflective patterning and subtle zip details will keep you seen, as they lit up well under the beam of both a torch and car head lamps. The darker kit really is a refreshing change from the classic high-vis numbers in neon yellow and vivid orange, as you can stay visible without feeling like you should be in a hard hat on a building site.
Easy on the eyes
Here at RB HQ the aesthetics of our running kit comes next on the list after functionality. Feeling confident in your apparel always helps to get you out the door and on the road. With flashes of reflective coral, strips of silver and grey patterned paneling, you can be sure to hit the streets feeling in control and comfortable.
Protection from the elements
Let's not shy away from the fact that Jack Frost will soon be here and he will make it harder to put the miles in as the cold bites. Some of our favourite details on the X Lite long sleeve top are the handy chin guard and extra hand protection with cut out thumb holes for when the harsh weather hits.
The lightweight X Lite range not only keeps you protected from the elements but keeps you cool and comfortable when you push the pace. Subtle ventilation panels are cleverly placed in heat targeted areas to stop you from overheating, allowing you to push your training without feeling discomfort.
If you need to take your phone, keys or spare change on your run, this kit has got you covered. Subtle zip pockets will keep your belongings safe and sound without the need to take an extra bag on your run.
The Karrimor X Lite range is easy on your purse strings, without sacrificing quality, comfort or style. Karrimor have created pieces that could sit alongside some of the leading running retailers comfortably, helping you bound your way through winter in safety.
