  1. Trending in the opposite direction to what we normally post, e-bike sales are slowing due to economic pressures on individuals. In 2022, value sales of eBikes hit an estimated £310 million, down from £330 million in 2021. Although sales are set to temporarily slow between 2022 and 2023, Mintel predicts faster growth to return to the eBike market from 2024 onwards.
  2. Female specific soccer boots. If you ever want to read how to get from an idea to a final product, then you should read the story of IDA sports. Well done Laura Youngson!
  3. 3D printed shoe mold manufacturing. Ever wanted to create your own shoes? Well learn part of the process by watching this video on "a new method of shoe sole mold manufacturing using additive manufacturing."

Sports Science

"Our findings indicate that core training improved different variables of performance such as balance, throw/hit, and vertical and horizontal jump."

Rodríguez-Perea et al., 2023 - Core training and performance: a systematic review with meta-analysis - Link

Ok! So this was good news and bad news for me. I am not the biggest core training fan, but for the past 6 months I have been doing 100 core exercises every time I go to the gym.

Good news is that all that effort is not wasted. 

Bad news is I have to continue doing them! Ach well! Here's hoping I get super-abs

Well if you want to deep dive into core training there isn't a better research paper

AI Sports Equipment Design of the Day

We are loving AI at the moment and think it will change how we design sports equipment forever, so here is our new design of the day.

This week's inspiration was the 3D printed shoe mold technology. So, we took a gamble and typed in only a few words into PlaygroundAI - 3D Printed Running Shoe - and this is what came back. Not bad, not bad....

3D Printed Running Shoe - no prompts 1


None of the content is sponsored, we simply love the work they do and think it will spark a little bit of inspiration over your coffee break.
