Trailandultrarunning.com went to the Summer Outdoor Retailer Trade Show to meet with a few companies and get a good look at their new line for Fall ’13 and Spring ’14. What we saw was incredible, to say the least. More surprising was how many of these companies actively engaged with us to provide a detailed preview of their forthcoming products.
The result is that we have an amazing Fall line-up of reviews for you to help prep you for next year’s racing season. Take a look at some of our reviews already in test.

Poles have been an integral part of trail and ultra running in Europe, but it’s only now starting to take off in the States. We can tell you now that after you try a set of these poles out for yourself, you’ll be hooked. We will bring you poles from REI, Komperdell, and Leki.[/learn_more]
