RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Runtopia, creator of the namesake GPS-based running app that serves more than one million users, is pleased to announce the launch of the Runtopia Reach smart running shoes today on Indiegogo.
Runtopia Reach offers superior comfort, style, and durability along with smart sensors to improve form and prevent injury. Additionally, the shoes are connected to the Runtopia app, which provides customized training plans and other coaching functions to deliver an unmatched running experience.
“The Runtopia team had a vision to bring smart shoes to the world so that runners of all levels would have the tools they needed to improve their runs, at a fraction of the cost of a live-personal trainer,” said James Si, VP & Co-founder. “At Runtopia, we are committed to elevating the running experience—not only by creating products and services—but by creating an engaged network of enthusiasts and promoting a sports-centric lifestyle. With Runtopia Reach we are making each step smarter and safer.”
Key Runtopia Reach features include:
- Real-time Audio Coach: Analyzes running forms based on the individual and provides real-time audio feedback to prevent injury and help runners understand factors affecting their runs, such as ground force, correct running posture, and pace.
- Smart Tracking Chip: Collects and analyzes data on the app, including cadence, stride length, foot strike, and gait ratio to provide real-time tracking and feedback.
- Exclusive Training Plans: Runners can manage personalized fitness goals for weight management, daily calorie intake, and more through an exclusive training plan for safe progression towards their ultimate goals, whether it may be marathon training, weight loss, or strength training.
- Effortless Data Tracker: Enables users to track and transfer running data directly from their shoes. Runtopia Reach sneakers function independently, so you can run without your phone and manually sync your data later, for a truly hands-free experience. For the complete audio experience runners will need to bring their phone with them.
- Heel Stabilization, High-Grip Sole, and Breathable Materials: Improves foot stability and ankle support to avoid twists, sprains, and other injuries, while lightweight, high-elasticity foam provides a maximum grip to make running easier and safer across all terrains. Further, antibacterial mesh and elastic insoles provide a cool and comfortable run.
- High-Visibility Reflective Heel: A reflective design makes it safer to run in the dark.
- Streamlined Design: The shoes are built perfectly to fit the foot, offering extreme comfort, while their colors provide a vibrant or sleek style.
