Raidlight was founded in 1999 by French international runner, Benoit Laval, who combined his passion for running with his knowledge of working with large sportswear brands. Based in the French Alps, Raidlight has become an international running brand, and is known for its innovative technology and ergonomic designs.
The name 'Raidlight' comes from a combination of two words: 1) the French word 'raid', meaning trail running/expedition racing, and 2) the word 'light', which pinpoints Laval's aim to create lightweight equipment. Raidlight is therefore the embodiment of lightweight trail running apparel and equipment, and is designed for those who share Laval's passion for the sport.
From trail tights and t-shirts to running packs and accessories, Raidlight has something for every trail runner. The brand also prides itself on being part of the trail running community, creating the the Team Raidlight online community so that everyone can share their knowledge and give advice on different apsects of the sport.
