No wires.
No goggles.
No wristbands.

As a runner, you strive for your best —  your fastest mile, your farthest run, your best form. You chase the unencumbered feeling of running free and breaking barriers.

Lumo Run incorporates the personal attention of a running coach with the professional data of a lab — all within the lining of your shorts to help you achieve your best.

Running metrics

Get powerful, post-run insights on your running form through lab-grade biometrics in the Lumo Run App.

Real-time audio cues

Auditory coaching through your headphones gives you real-time feedback on your form for immediate improvement.

State-of-the-art sensor

The small but powerful sensor is waterproof, machine washable, and lasts up to at least one month on a single charge. 

What we measure

Cadence, also known as steps per minute, is how frequently your foot contacts the ground every minute. More…

Bounce, also known as vertical oscillation, is the up and down movement of your body while you run. More…

Ground Contact Time
Ground Contact Time is a measure of the amount of time your foot stays on the ground during each step. More…

Braking, also known as the change in horizontal velocity, is the decrease in speed your body experiences on each step. More…

Pelvic Rotation
Pelvic Rotation is how much your pelvis moves on three axes: tilt (forward / backwards), drop (up / down) and rotation (left / right). More…

Stride Length
Stride Length is the distance from initial contact of one foot to next initial contact of the same foot. More…

To determine these key metrics for targeted form, Lumo Run was created in collaboration with leading sports biomechanics experts at Loughborough University in the UK. Their state-of-the-art research has created new knowledge about running technique, identifying key characteristics for ideal running form.

Take your coach with you everywhere.

No need to wait until your post-run summary to get feedback on your running form. Get auditory coaching during your run through your headphones so you can start working on your form in real-time.

The Lumo Run’s lab-grade 9-axis sensor and advanced algorithms capture accurate running biomechanics through core body movements — all in one small and sleek device in the waistband of the shorts.

What is Lumo Run?
Lumo Run is a revolutionary technology package in a pair of smart shorts that measure, track and coach you on your running form to improve your performance. Lumo Run tracks key running metrics including cadence, bounce, stride length, ground contact time, braking, pelvic tilt, pelvic drop and pelvic rotation to measure efficiency, performance and form of the runner. Using these metrics, Lumo Run offers run summaries for each run through the Lumo Run app, auditory coaching via headphones during the run, and personalized coaching tips to help the runner improve form for better performance and injury prevention.

How does Lumo Run work?
Lumo Run is a pair of smart running shorts with a sensor in the waistband that connect with your smartphone. Lumo Run uses a 9-axis IMU to record your biomechanical movement. This enables you to get real-time feedback in the form of audio coaching from your earbuds.

Do I need to run with my phone for Lumo Run to work?
Your Lumo Run shorts and sensor will still capture all of your running biomechanics even if you choose to run without your phone. You can sync your run data to the app after your run to get your post-run summary. However, insights like routes, pace and distance, as well as the auditory coaching cue feature requires you to run with your phone and headphones.

Is the sensor waterproof?
Yes, the Lumo Run sensor is waterproof and machine washable (no tumble dry). The Lumo Run shorts are also machine washable, though we recommend hang drying them.

Can you use the sensor in other pants?
Since the Lumo Run shorts and capris were specifically designed to place and hold the sensor in the waistband for accurate biomechanical tracking, the Lumo Run sensor module is not compatible with any other garment.
