BoomBoom Athletica Racer Tank – first look

New fitness range aimed at women looking for high-performing workout kit

New women’s fitness apparel company BoomBoom Athletica is the brainchild of ultrarunner Ann Johannson, who launched it with the aim of introducing a range which combines functionality with style.

We tried out the Racer Tank and it performed well during an intense 60-min gym session. The soft fabric is light and breathable, wicking sweat away quickly and the flattering cut skims rather than clinging to the body, while the ‘slash’ mesh design on the back aids cooling. BoomBoom tell us the fabrics have a high UV protection and are also resistant to sunscreen and oils, meaning they should perform well for outdoor summer workouts as well. We’ll be testing the matching run leggings soon.

The Racer Tank is £75 in limited edition black and white, or £65 in a single colour.
