The brainchild of two running enthusiasts, Pinrace is a brand new British startup and the release of their flagship product is set to revolutionize the sports world by making traditional and inconvenient safety pins obsolete.

The innovative fastening system features a pair of strong magnets which clasp onto each other through the fabric of the garment and race number holding it firmly in place, regardless of the sports the garments might be used for. Developed by runners, for runners, the Pinrace system quickly solves the host of problems that traditional safety pins cause for both veteran and novice runners alike. While they have been the go-to fastening system for many years, safety pins simply aren’t reliable, and they can damage expensive sportswear over time.

The idea behind the magnetic fastening clasps occurred to Pinrace founders Manuel de Luque and Montserrat De Juan as the running enthusiasts have experienced problems with the safety pins first hand, so they set about devising a solution to the discomfort and ineffectiveness of traditional safety pins and shortly thereafter the innovative Pinrace fastening system was born.

Though they put runners first, Pinrace is committed to giving it back to the community therefore a percentage of all sales of this latest fastening system will be donated to deserving charities across Britain.
