Top Sports & Outdoor Brands to Help You Train and Recover Better
There are a ton of outdoor brands out there who create products to help you reach your peak performance and help you train better and recover quicker. We have a roster of brands on Hubba for Sports & Outdoors Week who are there when you need them for endurance, stamina and resting up. Whether it’s for athletic training or recovery, the brands below have got you covered!
KT Tape was born right around the 2008 Olympics after the founders saw a lot of consumer interest in kinesiology tape. They wanted to provide kinesiology tape at retail and educate consumers on how to apply it outside of a medical setting. KT Tape was founded on the idea that anyone can tape themselves and receive pain relief and support from kinesiology tape.
KT Tape comes in 10 different colours and additional fashion designs which makes it stand out on players and athletes in the Sports industry. KT Tape is different from traditional sports athletic tape in that it is elastic and provides pain relief and support without restricting the body’s natural movement. KT Tape PRO is the only synthetic kinesiology tape on the market and is the leading kinesiology tape in retail.
The NBA actually banned KT Tape from being worn on basketball players and then unbanned it before finally allowing it on players like James Harden.
LALO saw a need within the Naval Special Warfare group and worked with them to solve the footwear problems they were having. They started a collaboration with them and LALO was born.
LALO has a unique product profile and positioning. Their product was designed for special warfare operators and has been designed and developed to help them stay fit as in their job time and space matters.
The names of their shoes come from areas or materials that are from the NSW base. The Grinder is the area outside of the barracks where they do PT, Bloodbird from the pinning ceremony when they get the SEAL Trident and the Zodiac Recon is from the Zodiac boats they use to operate in.
If you’re looking to load your upper body with added weight to help boost the efficiency of workouts, improving speed, balance, endurance, Titin is for you. Titin creates the world’s only weighted compression fitness shirts and is a winner of the Under Armour Innovation Award and has appeared on Shark Tank.
Whether you’re training for the military, cross training, MMA or other endurance sports, Titin has a product line that can help boost the efficiency of your workouts, improve speed, balance, endurance, and vertical leap.
The founder of LO SWIM had been swimming competitively, and her team did not have the most flattering swimwear available at the time. Being crafty and creative, she started cutting up her old suits and designing my dream suit- functional and flattering. LO SWIM was started with left over scholarship money and has been entirely self-sustaining ever since.
LO SWIM was designed and tested by collegiate swimmers with a lot of attention to the details. The ruche detailing is hydrodynamic and prevents drag, the braided straps expand and contract to prevent chaffing, and the polyester holds shape and colour much better than lycra. Draw cords and adjustable straps keep the suit glued onto the body during sprits, dives and flip turns, so swimmers don’t have to worry about any fuss- just kicking ass.
TruFit is basically the swiss army knife of fitness products. TruFit was founded to inspire and help everyone find health and wellness in their lives. We created a product that can be used by anyone as well as a fun and effective programming and education in order to help people train for anything. The company’s passion lies in helping kids and steering that generation in the right direction. Educating them and making fitness fun will change the growing trend of childhood and adult obesity and start working towards a healthier, more active population.
TruFit was born out of climbing. They didn’t like the choices of suspension exercise products that were out there and started using old rock climbing equipment to make our own. This evolved into designing the highest quality, most versatile functional fitness product on the market. TruFit partnered with Mad Rock Climbing, who manufactures the UNIT 2.0 which is made of the highest quality rock climbing webbing and components. It’s one of the safest and most durable product of its kind.
The TruFit UNIT 2.0 has twice been taken up El Cap, a 3,000 foot granite wall in Yosemite by TruFit Ambassador, Scott Peterson. While climbing the wall solo for 12 days Scott would hook up the UNIT 2.0 to the wall and use it to work out and stretch for a bit before he settled into his hanging bivy for the night. This just goes to show the light weight and versatile nature of the product and how it can help even when you’re 3,000 feet off the ground.
Being pioneers in optical heart rate sensors for the wrist, Mio Global engineers the most accurate heart rate wearables that help to maximize training intensity, efficacy, and health visibility by tracking heart rate with precision.
Mio’s precision engineered heart rate wearables are the gold standard in wrist-based heart rate monitoring. Unlike most other trackers, their heart rate watches and wristbands are water-resistant to 30 meters and accurate at performance levels. Mio wearables are designed with athletes in mind, providing the ultimate in comfort, precision, and durability.
Mio was the first company to bring wrist-based heart rate monitoring to the fitness industry in 2013 when it launched the Mio ALPHA on Kickstarter.
Back in 2004, two German pro triathletes met, fell in love and with only passion and a tight budget started a business that is now known as SLS3. With years of swimming and triathlons under their belt, they founded a business for triathlon race apparel and compression gear.
In the beginning SLS3 only made a suit, short, top and one kind of compression socks, all you need to do a triathlon! Their product line has since expanded and their garments are made with great care, attention to detail, German precision and a hefty dose of passion for the sport.
SLS3 compression products are designed by medical professionals are made on medical machines – not a regular sock machine. The creators are constantly looking at their products and improving them.
The founder of Camel Hug has worked in textile manufacturing for over 30 years, working with every fabric imaginable, from cotton to wool to synthetic blends. He was looking for a unique, natural and sustainable textile fibre with special properties not offered by others – that’s when he discovered camel hair from Bactrian Camel that lives in Gobi Desert in Inner Mongolia.
Camel Hug has several products that come with mild compression and the unique properties of natural warmth, moisture wicking, breathability and dye free. These combined benefits differentiate our products not only in the Sport Industry but also appeal to industries or individuals who enjoy therapeutic, occupational, active lifestyles.
