Ultramarathoner, Claire Kelley, decided to put SAAKA to the test during her completion of 16 ultramarathons in 2016. She began using our products during race number eight, when the temperatures were still up in the 90s, but continued to use them all through the year, including on her 100-mile run from Atlantic Beach to Daytona Beach in mid-December at the Daytona 100 Ultramarathon. The temperatures during this race fell to the low 40s overnight, and the runners battled high winds coming from the Atlantic Ocean. She credits our X Band with keeping the wind off her face and out of her ears, and for keeping her head warm while she completed some of her most challenging miles while most of the world slept.
“I wish more people knew about the SAAKA brand, and I wish the people who are familiar with it’s quality and benefits knew how complete and versatile the products are. These are not just sweat absorbers. They truly do help athletes compete at a higher level, and I can name off at least 5 uses for each product I have tried. The X Band for example keeps me warm in the winter, keeps wind out of my ears, keeps my earbuds in, keeps my sunglasses from moving at all, and keeps me dry in the summer. I can even put ice in it! What you guys at SAAKA are creating is on a whole other level. Thank you for doing what you do and for supporting what we as athletes are doing.” -Claire Kelley, ultramarathoner, Sarasota, FL.
