UltrAspire – Inspired Products for Ultra Athletes

Dear Athlete,

In all my years of designing, it has always been my dream to build packs for others that I would choose for myself without worrying about price, volume, or mass production. It is not my goal to be all things to all people—just to provide extraordinary choices for extraordinary people. People, who know when something feels right and good.

The most intuitive ideas for such products emerge from the interface of both engaging in the activity, and the active involvement and interaction of other dedicated athletes, who are inspired by what they do and what they need to do it. Finally, testing by all, feedback, more feedback and an on-going evolution of perfection.

It is evident that every athlete has different needs and goals, but all have some basic, very human, requirements. Among these: comfort, fit, freedom of movement, function, ease of access, and a product that meets the needs of the moment whether for training, hydrating on the fly, or achieving a PR. Being involved in ultra-events brings one into a new family with a shared experience; where, each person is important; where, excruciating moments are shouldered by all and where the smallest of triumphs uplifts the whole!

Welcome to our family—you inspire and motivate us. We hope you’ll let us be part of your family and that our performance enhances your performance. There is discovery in every journey.
