A pioneering approach to mask design
The ASICS RUNNERS FACE COVER is not like any other sports mask on the market. While other approaches rely solely on the breathability of materials, the ASICS RUNNERS FACE COVER combines this with an innovative design that gives runners the space to breathe comfortably within the mask. This groundbreaking approach means that runners of every level can achieve their best performance with the confidence that they are staying protected.
Scientists at the ISS have responded to the unique needs of runners with a series of technologies and design features including:
- Interior Space
Creates more room inside the mask to allow for easier breathing when running.
- Strategically Placed Air Vents
Air vents innovatively placed on the masks increase airflow while preventing the spread of droplets.
- Quick-drying Fabric
Cutting-edge material cools the air flowing into the mouth and helps reduce the risk of heat stroke.
- Comfort Fit
Specifically designed to accommodate a wide range of faces with an adjustable fit.
- Sustainable Design
Produced with approximately 31% recycled materials.
ASICS continues to listen to runners of all levels to keep them motivated and protected in a world coming out of lockdown
With the ASICS RUNNERS FACE COVER, ASICS is continuing to listen to runners needs at this time. Ongoing research conducted by ASICS shows that 54% of runners in the UK are more driven than ever to return to their physical peak. However, in the UK 73% said wearing a mask when running is not a comfortable experience because it is hard to breathe and irritates the skin. The ASICS RUNNERS FACE COVER is designed specifically to address the need for a running mask that offers comfort as well as performance and protection.
Yasuhito Hirota, President & Chief Operating Officer, ASICS, says: “At ASICS, listening to our runners and understanding their changing needs lies at the heart of everything we do. There is lots more we can learn from the running community as lockdown eases across the globe, and we will continue to evolve our products and services to meet their future needs.”
