Innovathlé was born from a challenge launched by Kériann Gratas at the age of 15, in 9th grade:create a startup in athletics. An athlete himself, his spikes were a problem for him when he left the track or put them in his bag. He therefore embarks on the creation of protective soles for athletic spikes.
After 3 years of development, the Track Protect was born. After a first appearance at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo thanks to Ronan Pallier, (who won the bronze medal in the T11 long jump), the product is finally available for all athletes.
Thanks to this product, athletes will no longer be required to remove their spikes when off the track. Not insignificant comfort that will be welcome by all athletes! Also, the product optimizes the life of spikes, sports bags and sports infrastructure.
The desire of its founder is to make the startup Innovathlé “THE brand for athletics”.
"Athlete myself (sprinter at US Talence), I was confronted with problems with my spikes off the track. So I started, from the age of 15, to look for a solution to this problem.
After more than 3 years of research and work, I founded Innovathlé and received several prizes in France and Europe by participating in contest.
As an athlete and enthusiast, I am very happy to launch Innovathlé. I care about to offer a new product that suits athletes and provides them with comfort."
