PRESS INFORMATION XX February, 2014 ‘Spring’ into Action this Season with SPIRO Lightweight & breathable, yet waterproof and windproof, SPIRO activewear is ideal for the changeable British weather With Spring promising to be a milder season, runners, cyclists and outdoor sports enthusiasts will be looking for lighter, less robust activewear to complement their fitness regime. However, milder doesn’t necessarily mean dryer or warm. Activewear brand SPIRO is offering fitness enthusiasts a range of sports garments that offer both lightweight, breathable fabrics for comfort in milder temperatures, and waterproof and windproof protection when inevitable April showers are never far away. The affordable range of high performance sportswear uses fast wicking and highly breathable fabrics such as COOL DRY and QUICK DRY. These work with the body during periods of extended exertion to keep it cool and comfortable when training in warmer temperatures – ideal for the changeable British weather! A lighter option, and new to the SPIRO collection, the S262M&F Airflow Softshell Gilet (men’s S62M SRP £13, ladies S262F SRP £12) is windproof and features a Quick Dry finish. The 2 layer soft shell has a mesh back panel for breathability. The gilet is ideal to throw on for running, cycling and other exertive sporting activities when you want protection without the bulk of a jacket. The S262M&F Airflow Softshell Gilet features reflective piping on the back contour panels and front print details for added visibility in darker conditions, a full front zip with inner storm flap, a stand up collar, bound armholes for robustness and an elasticated hem with rubber grip to stop the garment riding up. It is available in sizes S-3XL for men and 8-16 for ladies in Black and Neon Green/Black. The waterproof, breathable and windproof, S185X Crosslite Trail & Track Jacket is designed with comfort and protection in mind. Perfect for any exertive activity jacket features lightweight ventilated quick-drying fabric which keeps skin cool and comfortable, while the neon fabric and reflective detailing increases visibility in low light conditions. Retailing at 33.50, the S185X Crosslite Trail & Track Jacket provides necessary protection from the elements when running or cycling and can be packed down into its own belted stuff sack when the weather brightens up, for added convenience. It is available in sizes S-2XL. Ideal for both trail and road running, as well as biking, the S251M&F Bodyfit Base Layer Leggings (men’s S251M SRP £15, ladies S251F SRP £13) are breathable and feature Quick Dry Treatment Performance fabric with added fast moisture wicking control to keep the skin cool and comfortable. They feature contour fit panels and are constructed from micro soft athletic stretch fabric for freedom of movement. There is also a zip closing key pocket positioned on the outside back centre. The Bodyfit Base Layer Leggings are available in black only, sizes 8-18 for ladies and XS-2XL for men An ideal training top when the temperature is still a little cool, the lightweight and highly breathable S170M&F SPIRO Sprint Base Top (SRP £31.50) is made with high stretch fabric which is quick drying and actively wicks away perspiration, helping to regulate temperature. The flattering fit of the ladies S170F combines high performance with a sleek feminine look and is available sizes 8-16, while the S170M for men is looser fitting with a comfortable masculine cut and is available in sizes XS-2XL. Both styles are available in Black/Red and Black/Grey colourways. A short sleeve wicking tee at only £6, the S253M&FPerformance Quick Dry Short Sleeve T-Shirt is a quick-dry base layer, which rapidly wicks moisture to keep skin cool and comfortable.
