Today marks the national launch of athletic accessories brand, Balconi – an innovative product line designed by athletes to help consumers perform at their best, no matter the conditions. The brand’s most popular item, the Balconi Hat brings to market an exciting new-patented technology and unique style that encourages consumers to wear their confidence and always pursue their passions.
Making good on a childhood promise to her father, Balconi CEO, Reneé Balconi followed her passion all the way to Iceland in pursuit of a professional soccer career years ago. Fulfilling her passion every day, she was exposed to playing in some of the most extreme weather conditions; wind, snow, rain, sleet, hail, sun, she played in it all. Due to the extreme weather she was often forced to wear winter hats to keep warm, but soon realized that she needed a more breathable, functional option that would allow heat to escape, but also protect her from the sun; the Balconi Hat was then born.
Fast-forward to today, the Balconi Hat is now a patented product, proudly made here in the U.S. and worn by athletes, outdoor enthusiasts and even those who are simply style-savvy. Originally designed for performance purposes, its key features protect the eyes and ears from the wind and cold, while also allowing breathability that other hats fail to provide.
“After creating this hat based on my personal needs as an athlete, I realized that I had to do something that was bigger than just myself. I started Balconi to give others a company and brand that would believe in them. I want people to wear Balconi with confidence and encourage them to follow their passion every day,” said Reneé Balconi, Balconi CEO. “Growing up my father made me promise him that I would find my passion and always follow it. Playing professional sports and now launching a product line and brand that allows others to hopefully do the same, whether they’re an athlete, an outdoor enthusiast or simply someone who just wants to wear our products is literally a dream come true.”
Balconi offers consumers their patented hat (available in four styles), a neck gaiter and half-zip fleece option geared towards helping athletes train no matter the weather conditions they face. Balconi Gear represents those who are fueled by family, sweat their passion, and wear their confidence. For additional information and a full product selection please visit http://www.balconigear.com.
