AW promotion: Harness your running ability with a product which is tailor-made for athletes who don’t want to be parted from their phone, keys or cash

Created out of necessity, the V1 by FREETRAIN aims to make everyday training easier.

By holding essential items close and secure it will quickly become a runner’s most essential piece of kit. We have tried to think of every detail the everyday runner would need.

After tireless research we found weight distribution is vital. Several studies warn of the hazards of unbalanced weight distribution when running.

A common example is carrying your mobile phone in your hand. This can affect your stride and potentially cause injury. Where other alternatives such as an armband, bum belt or even pockets offset this distribution, the V1 is designed to centralise everything, keeping it close and within easy access, leaving you free to concentrate on the road ahead.
