BROOKLYN, NY (BRAIN) — Champion System is now offering sublimated fabric race numbers. The company said the numbers are lighter and more comfortable for racers than paper numbers, and offer participants a keepsake from the event.
“Any athlete that has worn paper numbers when competing will tell you how uncomfortable they are. While equipment and apparel have continually improved, athlete bib numbers are still in the dark ages,” said Charlie Issendorf, vice president of Champion System.
“We took what we know best, fabric and printing, to create a technologically advanced race numbers designed for today’s athlete. The result: say goodbye to having a crinkly piece of paper pinned to your jersey,” Issendorf said.
Depending on quantity, prices range from 29 cents to 50 cents per number.
