Spring is going to, well, spring on March 20th this year… in just a few short weeks, we’ll see green grass, flowers, intermittent showers and weather which can’t decide whether it wants to be hot or cold.
All that unpredictability, characteristic of spring? Totally fine. We’re going to be combatting it with slick workout jackets, cold-proof running tights, some sweet new bikes, and if the spring downpours get too rough, a tasty new beverage from one of our favorite breweries.
Whether you’re cycling, running, hiking or swimming, there’s something here for every fitness fanatic.
Athletic Brewing Athletic Lite
What do you do when you really want a beer, but you don’t want to ruin your workout? You pick up Athletic Brewing’s latest brew, that’s what you do. The makers of actually tasty non-alcoholic beers that are meant to be enjoyed after workouts, in nature or whenever you damn well please have released the perfect springtime beverage: Athletic Lite. With a minuscule 25 calories, five carbs and organic grains, we can personally attest that this beer is convenient for an active lifestyle and tasty, to boot.
Price: $13.99 (six-pack)
Nathan Vamos Track Jacket
Nathan’s new running jacket checks all the boxes: it’s waterproof, prioritizes mobility through four-way stretch and sans hood, is the ideal spring layering piece. It’s got two zippered hand pockets, a chest pocket and one hidden inside mesh pocket, perfect for storing gels, snacks, keys and phone.
Under Armour Velociti Shoe
Do you want to go fast this spring? Well, we suggest two things: start training, and get the right pair of kicks to support your new journey. Under Armour’s newest release ups speed and reactivity by removing rubber from the midsole; thanks to the brand’s Flow tech, the one-piece midsole provides responsiveness and cushioning, without the weight of rubber. Additionally, the shoe connects to Under Armour’s proprietary app, Map My Run, which tracks and analyzes your running metrics, helping you to get more out of your miles.
State Bicycle x Wu Tang Clan
“Wu-Tang Clan (and State Bicycle) Ain’t Nuthing Ta F*ck Wit.” That just about says it all when it comes to the newest collab from the unlikely pairing. State and Wu-Tang collaborated on a complete line of bikes, apparel and accessories celebrating the group’s legacy, including State’s 6061 Black Label, Core Line, and Klunker. The accessories include bar tape, saddles and a wheelset, so you can add that WuTang flair to any of your rides. Much of the collection is already sold out, so get your hands on some while you still can.
Price: $14.99 – $749
Form Smart Swim Goggles
Plenty of things are “smart” these days – smart watches, smart dishwashers, smart glasses. When it came to tech-infused fitness gear and everyday items, we thought we had seen it all… until we found Form’s Smart Swim Goggles. The goggles feature a transparent in-goggle display that shares metrics like swim time, distance and pace, all in the moment. The goggles also feature guided workouts, post-swim tools and feedback access to the community of Form swimmers also using the smart goggles.
Price: $99 for the goggles, $20/month for Form membership
Tracksmith Thaw Collection Tights
Thaw out by layering up with these tights from Tracksmith. These insulated beauties not only keep you nice and toasty, (thanks to two-sided fabric with a brushed backside) — they also repel mud and water, a springtime must. Heiq Eco-Dry finish offers PFC-free protection from the elements, so you don’t have to worry about unwanted chemicals against your skin, or mud ruining your tights. Three strategically-placed pockets round out the functionality.
Chargel Energy Gel Drink
Did you love Jell-O Jigglers as a kid (or Jell-O shots in college)? Check out Chargel, which is bringing a concept that is reportedly big in Japan stateside: on-the-go energy drinks/snacks with a gel-like consistency. Available in white grape, green apple and strawberry flavors, the palm-sized pouches feature a 180-calorie blend of carbs and essential B-vitamins without caffeine, artificial sweeteners or high-fructose corn syrup. It may not be everyone’s jam, but those drawn to the slogan “the energy drink you eat” should be stoked.
Price: $20.94 (box of six 6.35-ounce pouches)
