Meet the Glide Guru

"THAT'S THE WAY IT IS !" Tiger Woods

"TIGER IS WRONG!" Glide Guru

Neil Trodden aka the “Glide Guru” began his design and innovation journey in 2014. He has dedicated himself relentlessly to analysing the impact of apparel layers on swing speeds in cold weather rotational sports such as Baseball & Golf. 

In cold weather conditions, traditional apparel layers restrict the body when it is twisting through fast arm rotations. The layers actually twist into each other and the wearer binding and acting like a clamp. Current brand layers severely resist free flowing arm movements. As a result sportsmen cannot attain their natural summer time zero friction arm speeds.

That is until now!

"My inspiration came from reading an article about how Tiger Woods just accepted “That’s the way it is” referencing the difficulties he experiences when playing in the cold. Tiger said: "I know I wont have the same range of motion as I would back home in Florida, where its 95F every day. That's the way it is" I just thought there must be a design solution to this and basically set about proving Tiger wrong. Through a relentless grind and a nutty naivety as to how the real world of sports innovation is a lock out by the athlete sign up monopoly of the bigger brands- I have now realised zero friction multilayer wear in in my glide swingchronization®️ apparel jackets. 

Every layer bearing the brand trademark of the eagle winged silverback EAGOR®️is designed to glide with and over each other, removing binding and creating an effortless silky glide with the athletes arm rotations. There is no loss of swing speed wearing my apparel comparing summer arm speed with winter multilayer conditions.

As the glide concept developed from the light bulb moment to the physical glide layers that realise the sport’s performance innovations Neil acquired two trademarks EAGOR®️ Swingchronization®️ and his online name the “Glide Guru”
