Just a little bit of debris in your shoes can really change the whole trail experience. Mud, sand, soil, leaves, rocks, twigs and other debris can really cause discomfort once they enter your shoes. Ahon Gaiters can really keep yourself protected on the trail.
There is no doubt that trail running is getting more popular now. Trails and treks can give you a lot of wonderful views that you get to enjoy at a more comfortable pace. It’s a different set of challenges as the raw trails may vary in terms of surface, terrain, elevation and technical difficulty. There’s all the debris from mud, sand, soil, leaves, rocks, twigs and others when you enter the trail. Once it gets in your shoes, it becomes a discomfort or even cause blisters.
This is where Gaters come into the picture. Gaters protect you from the different debris that can enter your shoes as every little bit of discomfort is magnified when you run. Each stride becomes a lot more difficult and just imagine when you’re in the middle of a long trail and you’ll have to bear with the pain or worst not finish the trail.
Ahon at Nuvali Trails
I was able to try out Ahon in two of my races in Nuvali. Nuvali has the friendliest trails but it also has muddy paths, single track trails, stoney areas, rivers, rough roads, grass lands and some peaks and inclines to challenge you. It minimized the dusts and debris from entering my shoes. It’s light on the feet and you’ll barely notice wearing it. It does not disrupt your running form since it’s constructed from breathable and elastic materials.
Ahon on a Stormy Race at Mount Marami
The bigger test for the Ahon Gaiters was getting me past the harsh trail condition during a 21K race at Mount Marami. There was a storm during the race so there was mud all around the place. I had to cross several rivers and puddles of water too. After the river crossing, everybody was cleaning their shoes but I didn’t have to as the Gaters prevented any debris from entering my shoes.
I really appreciate how Gaters can protect your feet from the different debris on trails. I know how it feels to be running with discomfort. I’ve had blisters too and that takes time to heal too. I get small from small rocks entering my shoes.
I don’t have to worry much about this inconveniences. I don’t have to stop to clean my inner shoes. I don’t have to deal with post run blisters, cuts or wounds. I can just focus on the run or enjoying the views. You can get down and dirty and secure the comfort inside your shoes. It’s a small investment for better trail running pleasure. Ahon is a local brand that is founded by people who are passionate with the trails and the mountains. They use quality materials because they know how it feels to encounter the different discomforts on the trails.
They also have catchy designs. I have the Tradvista Gaters which is the one and grey combination that can match any of your trail running outfit. The Tradvista is short for Traditional Visayan Tatoo and highlights our hometown heritage. They use lines and patterns and added some colors to be stand out better.
The Kikay Gaters can really stand out with its yes, Kikay Colors. It’s perfect for girls who love color of Pink and even guys who love the flashy look of the colorway.
Baybayin which is our forefathers’ alphabet has an elegant black colorway with scribbles of the Baybayin Alphabet. It highlights a piece of our culture and tradition with this colorway.
