Why should we use Nova?
Nova is a game-changing jacket for runners, cyclists and other outdoor enthusiasts. It’s a pain to carry a flashlight or to attach the appropriate reflective gear when heading for a night run. Nova allows people to run freely in any weather condition – which means no excuses. Not only does Nova have excellent safety features, it’s comfortable and stylish.
Who created it?
Having closely worked with community of runners and athletes for over 2 years, NOVA was developed by Twinery, the innovation arm of MAS Holdings, one of the largest sports apparel manufacturers globally
