Get Down and Dirty in the Trails with Ahon.PH

Posted by on 7. July 2015

I love Trails!!!

I’ve grown fond of trail running and trekking mountains. It’s has the breathtaking scenery.  It has the challenging terrain.  It has the fresher air.  It has varying surfaces and obstacles.  With different surfaces, comes debris like mud, sand, soil, leaves, rocks, twigs and others that can enter your shoes and cause a lot of discomfort.  You can leave all those worries behind as Ahon.PH gaiters got your feet protected from all the debris.  You can have a longer and a much comfortable time appreciating the beauty around you.

There are more people doing trails and climbing mountains now.  I also spend quite a lot of time in the trails to do away with the monotony of road running.  Trails and treks gives you a better appreciation of nature, a slower and more comfortable pace and it challenges you to reach some peaks and rewards you with a magnificent views.  It allows you to conquer yourself in a different way.  You learn to adopt to the different terrain and surfaces.  You get to conquer distance and elevations.  The unique thing about the trails is you get uneven and varying surfaces. There’s all the debris from mud, sand, soil, leaves, rocks, twigs and others when you enter the trail.  The thing is once it enters your shoes, it can be a big discomfort or even worst cause blisters and other irritations.  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.

The trails can provide you with all the different surfaces and terrains that will challenge you.

I got to test the Ahon.Ph in two races so far which is the 22 kilometer distance of TNF 100 and a 15K run at the Valley Trail Challenge, which was both held in Nuvali.  When it comes to profile of the course, 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.  Nothing was able to penetrate the gaters, which meant I was able to finish both races blister free.  It blocks the dusts and debris while also being a water absorber when wet.  I barely felt that I was wearing the gaters as it’s light on the feet. It does not disrupt your running form since it’s constructed from breathable and elastic materials.

I’ve been on too many running discomfort going through variety of trail surfaces over the years running the trails.  I get blisters that take time to heal.  I get small cuts from small rocks entering my shoes.  I get to deal with a lot of mud accumulation in my shoes too.  I really appreciate being free from all those debris in my shoes after wearing Ahon.PH gaters.  I can now focus on enjoying the trail and just running.  I don’t have to stop to clean my inner shoes or have to deal with any post run blisters, cuts or wounds.  You’ll get to love the trails and the mountains even better. You can get down and dirty and secure the comfort inside your shoes.  It’s a small investment for better trail running pleasure.  I also support the brand as it is a  local brand 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 in the trails.  Gaters can really give you a happier trail running experience.

They also have great design for gaters.

The Gaters

TradVista Gaters

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.

Kikay Gaters

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 Gaters

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.
