“We are excited to partner with AfterShokz and introduce their brand to BGR! Nation,” said Jay Ell Alexander, owner of Black Girls RUN!. “Our running community is always looking for ways to enhance their run and what better way than this through technology and safety.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Black Girls RUN! and offer their members the opportunity to experience the benefits of open-ear listening,” said Kim Fassetta, CMO, AfterShokz. “Through our collaboration BGR! we hope to educate BGR! Nation on the importance of being open and hearing it all while running.”
AfterShokz’s unique design and technology has earned them CES Innovation Awards, Red Dot Awards and the "best for running safely" pick in Business Insiders “best headphone for runners” guide. The headphones use bone conduction technology to transmit audio waves to the inner ear via mini vibrations guided through a pair of transducers that sit on your cheekbones. This leaves your ear canals open, allowing you to remain alert and aware of ambient sounds, teammates, coaches, training partners and more while you enjoy your music.
