Introducing SAYSKY Run Clothing
The SAYSKY brand came to fruition in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2013 when Lars Pedersen took up triathlon. Having formerly been a professional windsurfer, he wanted run clothing that matched his laid back, casual style rather than the overtly technical, sporty look offered by the mainstream running brands.
Style and Performance
Urban and minimalist, the brand offers an alternative aesthetic to the more traditional styling of most run clothing. It does this sympathetically and without hindering performance, as evidenced by Lars’ impressive Ironman World Championship results, and as such attracts customers to the brand for its technicality as well as its appearance. Despite having such a speedy figurehead, SAYSKY is anything but elitist, with its core message of “Be a star” encouraging each and every athlete to be the best that they can regardless of how that stacks up against others.
With its cool style and positive ethos, it is no wonder SAYSKY has attracted a global following, with the product range offering a large choice of staple run clothing including tops, shorts and tights. However, jackets, casual clothing, triathlon pieces and accessories are also available for those who appreciate the SAYSKY brand extends further than just running.
Right from the beginning, SAYSKY has supported grassroots runners, taking great pride in organising local races and events, and placing as much emphasis on participation and fun as there is on speed. Complementing this has been a willingness to collaborate with other brands and designers to produce clothing collections or pieces with a unique slant to them. International brands such as Garmin and CeramicSpeed have also partnered with SAYSKY, underlining their ability to punch above their weight in the competitive arena of sports apparel.
Recycled materials and sustainability play a big part in SAYSKY’s products, with the environmentally friendly option being taken whenever possible. This means the use of non-mulesing Merino wool, welfare certified down and a shift towards Tencel rather than cotton as it is better for the environment. Their polyester is 92% recycled and the packaging is recycled and biodegradable too, but perhaps most importantly their products are designed to last, thus reducing the need for constant replacement and overconsumption.
