Well we’ve asked for inside info from the brand including the latest product technologies, what makes Ronhill a stand out brand and what to expect from their Spring 2013 collection.
Here’s what we found out:
Can you give us a brief overview of Ronhill the brand?
Ronhill is the UK’s leading British running brand established by GB’s running legend Ron Hill in 1970. Ron Hill won Commonwealth Games gold and was the first Briton to win the Boston Marathon in (2hours 9mins 28secs). Ron has run every day since Dec 1964 – over 47 years!
The Ronhill brand is built on a philosophy of designing and producing technical performance clothing to aid a better running experience for the runner.
Why should runners choose Ronhill over competing sportswear brands?
Ronhill is built on a running heritage of producing technical performance clothing that has a high quality standard. We pride our products on the fabrics we use and spend a lot of time on the fit and form of our products too.
What are the Autumn Winter season highlights?
The Ronhill brand is a market leader in hi-viz apparel. The Vizion collection contains a variety of waterproof and windproof jackets, a choice of leg wear options, alongside a full range of mid and base-layers.
We love the neon pinks and yellows available at the moment, what would you recommend as the key piece for the season?
The Vizion Jacket and Tights are the highlights of the Autumn 2012 Vizion collection. Extra reflectivity and an integrated LED light in the jacket are new and innovative for the season.
Can you give us a sneak peek into what’s coming for Spring Summer 2013?
We have some really exciting products, colour options and new designs coming for Spring 2013. Our off-road Trail collection has some really neat updates and we are working hard to deliver a range of products that cross over from road to off-road; as we know many runners are training during the week, sometime in their lunch breaks, to do races and events at weekends. Look out for our new Twin Short – a really gorgeous piece of kit.
Does Ronhill have any celebrity fans? If so who are they?
Ronhill kit has been spotted on, and used by, many celebrities, footballers, musicians and actors/actresses over the years which has been great to see they have chosen our products.
