Garments with responsive fibers to boost athletic performance

Psst ... Saucony knows a secret. A no B.S. training secret that can give you the edge to go faster, train harder, push further, jump higher, crank out those extra squats, and then be ready to do it all over again and again. On July 15th, Saucony, Inc., a leading global supplier of performance athletic footwear and apparel, will let athletes in on the secret. It's called AMP PRO2, and it's the next great innovation in technical apparel. AMP PRO2 unites the benefits of compression with a specially formulated responsive fiber to improve oxygenated blood flow up to 32% more than compression alone -- critical to boosting athletic performance and enhancing recovery.

"AMP PRO2, our most technically advanced performance apparel to date, is inspired by our athletes who train and compete with one thing in mind -- winning," said Richie Woodworth, president of Saucony. "By combining the acknowledged benefits of compression with fibers that respond to the body, AMP PRO2 gives athletes a performance advantage, allowing them to train harder, push further and recover quicker. Simply put, with AMP PRO2, everything else is just compression."

AMP PRO2 utilizes Celliant, an innovative fiber that absorbs energy emitted by the body, and acting as a catalyst, recycles this energy back through the skin, causing circulation to become more efficient and increasing oxygenated blood flow in the body. The result is a natural performance edge for athletes who wear AMP PRO2 during training and recovery.

The highly anticipated collection features AMP PRO2 Training and AMP PRO2 Recovery offerings, constructed with two fabric options. The Training category delivers the benefits of higher compression technology, including enhanced muscle support and the reduction of energy lost to excessive pounding and muscle vibration during workouts. The Recovery collection, built to wear for longer periods of time, is engineered for maximum comfort with strategically placed seams. Both collections equally provide the benefits of increased oxygenated blood flow through the use of responsive fibers, allowing athletes to train harder and recover quicker.

AMP PRO2 Training offers the Training Short Sleeve and Training Long Sleeve tops, engineered with AMP PRO2 LT, a lightweight option that allows for thermoregulation during the highest level of activity. The collection's Training Shorts and Training Tights are engineered with AMP PRO2, offering more compression to reduce muscle vibration and tissue damage during training.

AMP PRO2 Recovery features a one-piece Recovery Suit that can be worn while sleeping or under clothes during downtime. The collection also includes the Recovery Long Sleeve and Recovery Tight with a plush elastic waist band for comfort.

"AMP PRO2 also helps the body with temperature control by promoting circulation more evenly throughout the body, enhancing the recuperative sleep associated with significant improvements in athletic performance," said Todd Dalhausser, general manager of Saucony apparel. "Athletes who recover by sleeping in AMP PRO2 wake up feeling refreshed and ready to work out that much harder the next day."
