Do you enjoy being active and like to run? Ripl's mission is for two people to be inspired to run and be active, every time one person buys sportswear!

Every time you buy an item of running wear from the Ripl Inspire range, you get to choose someone, who you want to support to be active / start running. That person then gets to select something from the Ripl Effect range of running accessories for absolutely free, in order to help inspire and motivate them, to be active and run! 
The Ripl Inspire range consists of a range of carefully designed and ethically sourcedrunning wear garments, packed with features and functionality, without the high price tag. In addition, all backers will receive a limited edition 'Ripl Founder' Headband and will be listed as a Founder, on the Ripl website. 

The Ripl Effect range of free items available for the people you choose to inspire, consists of an awesome, neoprene smartphone arm strap, a uniquely designed head buff and a selection of technical running headbands in 4 different colour ways. 
The Ripl team is on a mission to support as many people as possible, to be active and start running. They believe that running and being active transforms people's lives for the better, bringing benefits far beyond just physical fitness, such as mental wellbeing, confidence, self esteem, clarity and adventure.


Ripl running wear offers a range of garments, which are packed full of features, without the high price tag. Above all, the Ripl team has focussed on comfort, quality, fit and reliability in all aspects of design. Over a year has been spent developing the range, which has been extensively tested throughout, in all conditions. They are certain that you will find Ripl garments to be some of the most comfortable, well fitted items you have ever worn.
The Ripl team has worked tirelessly to find a supplier, whose values and ethical practices, meet their own, extremely high standards.
