Olympic Goals & Dreams


Thursday, August 25th, 2016

This past Summer, two breakout runners from the Boulder-based, Zensah & Brooks supported Roots Running Project competed for their first time in the US Olympic Track & Field Trials. Alia Gray & Noah Droddy’s advice & inspiration was something we wanted to share with all aspiring runners.

“Put yourself in the company of good people, whether that be training partners, coaches, or sponsors. You may be the one on the start line, but it will take a village to get you there.”

– Noah Droddy

  • If you could do the race over again, what would you do differently?

Wearable athletic tech company debuts VERT2 in conjunction with smart compression apparel partnership at CES 2016

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — VERT, a leader in wearable athletic technology, today announces its second product, VERT2. This next generation wearable jump monitoring device provides intensity, exertion and stress analytics in addition to VERT’s original jump height and count measurements. This announcement is released in conjunction with a new partnership with Zensah®, a premium compression apparel brand, to ensure athletes are training and playing safer. Both VERT2 and Zensah® apparel, integrated with VERT technology, will debut at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.Zensah and VERT at CES 2016

VERT2 is a non-invasive and discrete inertial measurement unit (IMU) worn on an individual’s body to report numerous athletic measurements, including total Gs, high/low intensity count, surges per minute, surge count, high acceleration (Gs) and average peak acceleration (Gs). These measurements are sent to the VERT software architecture in real-time, which can then be monitored by coaches and athletes during or after use.

“Zensah® aligns with VERT’s constant commitment to create better experiences for athletes, and we believe integrating discrete technology into Zensah® compression apparel is a giant leap in that direction,” said Martin Matak, founder and president of VERT. “We have already seen real-time jump measurements contribute to athletic safety with jump count data, but with the addition of intensity measurements in smart apparel, VERT2 will help prevent injuries to athletes and inform users of important information for recovery as well.”

With VERT technology integrated into Zensah® apparel, this partnership gives athletes the ability to use the jump monitoring device with the cutting edge, seamless technology and ergonomic fit that Zensah® is known for. Zensah® is committed to using the best fabrics and technology in all of its compression apparel, and this new tech will be made to fit products including the compression leg sleeves, socks, knee sleeve, tops, sports bras and more. Each product incorporates graduated compression for faster recovery, 3D ribbing for targeted muscle support, and a fabric that features silver ions and moisture wicking control.

“We are constantly researching and developing the most innovative designs and fabrics for athletic use, and we are excited to have a partnership with VERT that is leading the way in athletic wearables,” said Ze’ev Feig, founder and CEO of Zensah.

The VERT technology is currently used by the USA Volleyball National teams along with multiple NCAA volleyball and basketball programs throughout the US, which recently made history as the first wearable tech used in the 2015 NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship games. Through VERTcast, a sports telemetry system used with VERT technology, viewers were given the opportunity to experience student athleticism in real-time through live-screen and television newscast inclusion in the semi-final and championship games.

In addition to Unveiled on Jan. 4, Vert2 and the integrated tech with Zensah® will be available for preview at booth #74325 located in the Fitness & Technology area at CES starting Jan. 6th. The commercial product is set to be available for purchase May 2016, and consumers can find out more at www.myvert.com
