We have contacts with a lot of great companies and public relations firms, but one of our favorite’s is Verde.
At Verde Brand Communications we believe the world is better seen from the saddle of a bike, from five miles into a trail run, from the top of a backcountry bowl the night after it’s snowed 12-plus, from the nose of a surfboard at glass off, or halfway up the crux pitch of an alpine climb.
They have a nice outdoor ideal, and the companies they work with happen to be some of our favorites. If you are looking for some outdoor gear for this holiday season, check out their 2020 Holiday Gift Guide for Fitness Enthusiasts. The following can be found on their site:
Balega Reflective Enduro

The high-performance elastane and the pressure-free grip system ensure a secure hold while allowing your toes room to move.
