Record-breaking material from extremities® gives winter runners the edge Wednesday 9 November 2011 PDF Print OUTDOOR specialist Terra Nova Equipment has created a running glove using material from its record-breaking lightweight tent. The Terra Nova Laser Ultra 1 holds the Guinness World Record as the lightest double wall shelter ever produced – and now winter runners keen to shed as many grams as possible can take advantage of the same technology with the launch of the extremities Ultra Glo Glove. Revolutionary high-tenacity polyethylene Ultra is used for the back of the glove, while the palm is made from high-visibility Coolmax, resulting in warm, safe handwear that weighs just 19 grams. The extremities Ultra Glo has been developed specifically for winter runners by the Derbyshire firm’s experts. Andy Utting, managing director at Terra Nova Equipment, said: “As soon as we created the Laser Ultra 1 we realised the material could offer real benefits to runners. “As winter sets in, they will be looking for clothes that protect them from low temperatures, that improve visibility and that allow them to enhance performance. “We’re really excited about the potential of the Ultra Glo Glove – we think it’s a great addition to the extremities range for runners.” Terra Nova Equipment designs and produces clothing and equipment for outdoor and sporting enthusiasts, and its products have been used by the military and the British Antarctic Survey. Andy added: “Product development is a combination of us generating ideas based on market trends, our own knowledge and experience and working with suppliers to take advantage of technological breakthroughs in material.” Other garments created for runners by Terra Nova include the Elite Run Glove and the Adventure Racer Sock, which was supplied to all competitors in the 170-mile Britvic Marathon of Britain. The extremities range is stocked by outdoor retailers across the country as well as being sold through http://www.terra-nova.co.uk Ends Press release issued by David Johnson, Shepherd PR.
