Running has a way of unlocking a wide range of emotions and feelings: motivation, calm, release; frustration, exhaustion, euphoria. And the gear we choose to run in—lightweight and barely-there or supportive and held-in—becomes a catalyst to discovering and rediscovering those feelings, physical and emotional.
From the accomplishment of physical effort to the strength of mental fitness to the sensory quality of gear—feeling is found every step of the way as you drive yourself forward and propel yourself into the next phase of motion. Running is a discovery process - whether you are taking a jog in a bustling city, exploring a fresh trail outdoors or pushing your limits on the oval track you want to be donning gear that gives you the confidence and comfort to focus on what matters.
The lululemon run collection makes a bold statement and plays in the unfamiliar. Designed for the technically minded and aesthetically motivated, its newest range out from the lab is inspired by the innovators, the instigators and the agitators, featuring a vibrant colour scheme across both the men and women apparels and a plethora of new technology that looks set to disrupt the normal and cement a place as timeless, technical gear for the those who thrive in the unexpected.
Swiftly Tech + Silverescent® technology
Designed to be the ultimate gear for running and training in hot and humid conditions:
- Seamless apparel construction for reduced chafing and abrasion on longer runs
- Unique Odour-reducing fabric technology powered by X-STATIC® technology that bonds 99.9% pure silver to the surface of every fibre —woven into the very fabric of your favorite workout clothes.
- Silver releases positive ions that are attracted to the bacteria's negatively charged ions. When they all get together, the bacteria are inhibited from reproducing and causing a big stink. That means you can wear your gear today and it’ll still smell fresh tomorrow and the next day.
Metal Vent Tech
Built to perform sweat after sweat for the active individual.
- Quick-drying, mesh construction and thermoregulation that adds next-level breathability
- Seamless knit that feels impossibly lightweight and designed to suit each individual
- Larger ventilation zones and odour-reducing qualities keeps air flowing so you can keep your body moving without the uncomfortable and unpleasant distractions.
Inhibition of movement is the bane of any running apparel. The Nulux™ fabric is Lululemon’s solution to a smooth and lightweight fabric that promotes free strides and a free mind to let the runner feel like they could run forever.
- Nulux™ fabric offers 100% pure running freedom with its engineered four-way stretch, quick-drying, sweat-wicking, breathable qualities
- Feels sleek and cool to the touch
- Added Lycra® fibre aids with stretch and shape retention to stay nice and snug to the individual’s body

These core technologies will certainly help reinforce Lululemon’s mission statement of creating components for people to live longer, healthier, fun lives in their pursuit of delivering the highest quality technical athletic apparels out to the market!
