ROKA Sports, the performance multisport brand that makes the finest technical apparel and equipment for running, cycling, swimming and triathlon, has chosen Noble’s XT2® anti-odor technology as a key ingredient used in its successful Gen II Men’s and Women’s Elite Run Shorts. Due to its enormous popularity, the Gen II Men’s 5” Run Short has already sold out.


According to ROKA, very few running brands put the same design effort into the liner as they do the rest of the short, noting that many liners aren’t comfortable and serve little to no purpose apart from containment.


After searching for fabrics from manufacturers around the world, ROKA chose a soft, breathable fabric made with XT2® for the liner, which extends to the waistband, of the Gen II Elite Run Shorts. XT2® harnesses the properties of silver to provide long-lasting odor protection. Unlike topical finishes or treatments, the silver is inherent and permanent to the yarn and will not wash out or wear off – lasting the life of the product.

“Trust us, we know from testing in hot and humid conditions in Dallas, TX that this silver  technology really works,” said Justin Brinkley, ROKA Marketing Associate.


Because of the overwhelming success of its men’s Gen II Elite 5” Run Short, ROKA announced it has introduced XT2® anti-odor technology to its new Women’s Elite Run Shorts, a critical improvement to a short already chosen by Runner’s World as Gear of the Year in 2016!


Keep an eye on this growing brand. All run products are made in the USA, designed to unlock human potential. Sound familiar? Great minds think alike!


Here are a few comments about the ROKA Gen II Men’s Elite 5” Run Short from its fans….


Great fit and performance, wore them all day

My new go to running shorts. Great fit, cut and love the no smell liner. Raced in them in the morning and then spent the rest of the day playing at the beach.


Best running shorts EVER

I have used many, many, many running shorts over the years, and these, hands down, are the best. The waist band is large and perfectly elastic…not too tight. The under layer doesn’t chafe or rub me raw. Highly recommend.


Great shorts

Really enjoying these running shorts. Used them on several 10+ mile runs and they hold up really well. They are pricey but you get what you pay for. I will be getting more.
