This short blog will highlight the features of the newest Non-stop waist belt – the Running Belt. It was designed over the summer of 2013 with many of Europes’ top canicrossers having had an input into how the waist belt was produced.
The focus of the Non-stop Running Belt is to provide comfort for the runner by distributing the force of the pull across the largest surface area in the lower region of the body, the glutes. The main band of the belt which sits over the buttocks incorporates a small, handy pocket which can be used for storing poo bags or keys and can be adjusted to sit higher or lower by straps which are attached to the waist belt.
The waist belt (which actually sits on your hips) is also adjustable and clips together at the front of the belt, behind the webbing strap where the ring to attach your dogs’ line to can be found. The use of a ring at the front of the belt prevents you being catapulted around sharp corners by your dog, as the ring slides along the webbing and allows you more time to follow your dog around any bends in the trail.
The leg straps on the Non-stop Running Belt can be altered to make them as loose as you require but they are an integral part of the belts’ design and help keep the belt working as it should. It is worth noting that because this belt is so adjustable it can take a few attempts to get it sitting perfectly for your own requirements but once you’ve got it correct, the belt directs all the pulling force from your dog with your forward movement and away from your back, making this an extremely comfortable canicross belt to wear.
The Non-stop Running Belt was primarily designed for canicross racing but is just as suitable for training and is now being used by a number of recreational canicrossers. The belt also meets all International canicross race requirements, so you can be safe in the knowledge this belt is of the highest quality and design. I have been trialling the belt now for a few months and have found once you get the different sections of it adjusted, its’ unique composition makes it the most exciting new canicross product out of Europe this year.
