Here’s what Scotty has to say;
“Before the Naked running band was designed there was nothing on the market that could provide me with the equipment where I could easily access my poles and other critical items when needed. When I discovered the running band and tried it out for the first time I knew this was the piece of kit that I had to have. I am super stoked to be partnering with Naked and excited to be representing them and continuing on using their products. Now I can focus on racing!”
