Premium athletic wear Reigning Champ has released its first collection of performance athletic wear designed specifically for high-output running and training. Noted for its simplistic yet high quality, stylish designs in the athleisure category, this diversification into performance wear is a welcome one.

Reigning Champ Performance is led by a lightweight running jacket and short built from advanced stretch fabrics that repel water, resist wind and wick moisture. The perforated 5” Running Short features an engineered knit liner designed for long distance comfort, while the Running Jacket combines a protective ripstop nylon face with a breathable mesh back panel. Completing the running lineup is a pair of engineered base layers designed with body-mapped ventilation for superior next-to-skin-comfort.

For those of you with a preference for weight training over running, the versatile 7” Training Short, which features a smooth bonded hem, mesh hand pockets, and a breathable moisture wicking waistband is a superb option. Its counterpart is a featherweight Training Shirt made from a highly breathable Deltapeak™ mesh designed to resist snagging and dry quickly.

In contrast to the often loud designs that dominate traditional athletic apparel, Reigning Champ Performance emphasises stealth and subtlety – an attribute we applaud, and always have with this Vancouver-based brand. The collection is made from quiet materials strategically chosen to enhance focus, combining an understated colour palette with discrete yet highly functional details, including reflective logos and seams.

Furthermore, the Reigning Champ Performance collection has been thoroughly tested by endurance athletes, trainers, and fitness professionals to ensure optimal performance under the most demanding conditions. Advanced capabilities and cutting-edge technology, combined with extensive research and development, has resulted in a collection which exceeds Reigning Champ’s, and Ape’s, exceptional standards for quality and comfort.

Reigning Champ Performance is available now at all Reigning Champ flagship stores and online at reigningchamp.com.
