highgearOutdoor electronics brand Highgear (a division of Implus) have signed on as a 2011 sponsor of Team Pearl Izumi-Smith, an elite group of endurance runners who compete in over 60 of the country’s top long distance races throughout the year.

Team athletes include 2010 Wasatch 100 winners Nick Clark and Darcy Africa, Ashley Nordell, Scott Jaime, Nick Lewis, Josh Brimhall, Matt Lonergan and Aric Manning. Planning has already begun for the 2011 season, with the goal of adding a few new athletes to the roster and increasing the amount of races in which the team will compete.

The team has been testing out various Highgear timing products this year and plans to train and compete with those products in 2011. Popular amongst the team so far is the latest altimeter watch, the Axio Max, that is equipped with an 100-hour chronograph and 10-run data log memory that stores valuable training information including starting altitude, accumulated altitude and max altitude.
