CW-X Ladies PRO 3/4 Length tights

CW-X’s patented Kinesio Support Web™ system is more noticeable in these Conditioning Wear Ladies Pro 3/4 Length tights than in their Pro shorts. The company says their system helps condition the body properly during training by stabilising and holding the body’s systems in the right way so that muscles can perform what they were designed to do. “Traditional compression just holds everything tight,” says SA distributor Roger Bown. Kinesio Support Web™ is essentially an overlapping […]

CW-X Men’s PRO shorts review

CW-X Conditioning Wear: Men’s PRO shorts review. Do you finish some of your runs feeling like a bus ran over your legs? That aching sensation for the next day (or three) after big efforts is the result of microscopic tears in the muscle and joint tissue. Even highly trained athletes get it when they reach a new level of effort. They have their limits after all. Some athletes (representing the whole range from weekend warrior […]

Go! Vitality Boost review

Use this effervescent multivitamin, as its name suggests, as a boost. Taken first thing in the morning in a good-sized volume of water (300-500ml), it’s going to do two things. First, it will start hydrating you after several hours of zero fluid intake. Second, it’s going to flood your body with 12 important vitamins and minerals including vital Vitamins B12 (2.5ug, which is 250% of minimum daily dose), B1, B2 and B6, C and D3 […]

Turbovite Whiz-Fizz review

This effervescent powder is a good morning drink to charge your body with micro-nutrients as it’s starting up for another testing day. I drank the orange flavour for three weeks, and found it extremely pleasant on the palate. Over the years I’ve learned that the best way for me to remain cold- and flu-free is to stay hydrated. Example: I did a 90 minute morning paddle and that afternoon a 70 minute trail run, for […]

Nuzest Good Green Stuff

In my time, I’ve not tested a powdered organic supplement (or any supplement, for that matter) with as wide a range of ingredients as Good Green Stuff. And there have been more than a few. It has over 70 high quality organic ingredients – and the packaging says it also contains hundreds of other vital ingredients (including minerals, vitamins and probiotics). The list ranges from the common (the vitamin groups for example), to the good-to-have […]

gear Luna Mono Sandals test TRAIL magazine review

Luna Mono Trail Sandal Review

Testing the Luna Mono trail sandal Wowweeeeeeee! Maybe you’ll also feel like a streaker running across the pitch at a cricket match when you run in the Luna Monos for the first time. You may feel naked, liberated, exposed and slightly giddy with child-like exuberance. The difference was that my feet continued loving the sensation of freedom well after my runs; which is not the reward of streakers once they’re caught by Security! To form […]

Carbonology Sport Cruze Review

Until recently, most manufacturers completely underestimated the size and purchasing power of the recreational ski market. There are hundreds of social paddlers with no desire to contest dices or race series – they simply want to get out there and enjoy the ocean on a stable surfski. Epic got in there with their V8 and more recently the Fenn Bluefin, and both have hit the ground running. The Carbonology Sport Cruze is right in that […]

New Balance Minimus Ionix M3090v2 Review

Having never tried a New Balance Minimus model before, I was excited to try out the new 3090v2 road shoe. What first struck me, besides the striking lizard-like green and blue colour combination, was the low profile design. Being a Minimus model, it features a low 4mm heel-to-toe drop and it’s definitely not a heavy shoe. The size UK10 test pair showed 226g on our digital scale (per shoe). It’s also super-flexible with the fold […]
