Headsweats Perspiration Technology Headwear has been named the exclusive headwear of the North American Adventure Racing Series (NAARS) put on by American Adventure Sports. NAARS is a premiere international adventure racing (AR) series which hold races all across North and Central America. The partnership between these two athletic companies will provide the series with headwear for elite AR athletes as well as prizes for winning teams.
American Adventure Sports was founded in 1997 with the idea to create events and provide products that cultivate a passion for nature and activity. Since then, thousands of individuals have participated in AR events as a way to learn, grow and improve their lives through sport. American Adventure Sports first expanded its offerings in 2009 by opening a retail location in Indiana, PA to provide the tough-wearing outdoor and adventure gear needed by AR participants. The company continued to grow and moved to Greensburg, PA in 2012 where it also now houses a fully functioning in-house video production branch, supports a partnership with local universities, and operates an online store that provides top-of-the-line adventure racing and outdoor gear.
“Adventure racers encounter some pretty rough conditions out on the course, and they need to protect themselves from as many elements as they can,” said Doug Crytzer, Owner and Founder of American Adventure Sports, “ which is why we’re thrilled to have a sponsor like Headsweats back for the upcoming racing season. These hats give our racers protection and comfort they need for hours on end.”
The NAARS Coalition, consisting of dozens of race directors across the continent, is dedicated to creating synergy and positivity within the AR sport and providing opportunities for athletes and sponsors. As a part of that effort, Headsweats will act as an in-kind sponsor, providing headwear for the winners of the NAARS Prime and Prestige level events and will outfit all NAARS endorsed athletes.
"As the world leader in performance headwear, Headsweats is excited about the partnership with NAARS,” states Mike McQueeney, President of Headsweats. “Doug and his team have done a great job of expanding adventure racing internationally and we are proud to be a part of their continued success. In addition, by outfitting these extreme athletes, we are able to receive feedback that allows us to create more advanced and technical headwear for our market.
AAS is proud that Headsweats will be back in its Greensburg, PA retail location for the second year in a row. Being able to provide such a quality product to the public is one of their main goals, and the company prides itself on getting the best gear to their clients.
