You guys have been asking us for literally years and the wait is now over. We’ve officially launched our pants in youth sizes :-)
Our three most popular pants are the Original Parkour Pants, the Take Flight Parkour Pants, and the Run Free Pants. We have just released all three in youth sizes, Small, Medium, and Large. That corresponds to sizes 6-8, 10-12, and 14-16, and we also have a nice new size chart which displays the dimensions as well (see below)
Not only are our youth pants as comfortable and functional as our adult pants but we have one other added benefit as well. We have them on reduced pricing. Kids pants are discounted to as low as $21!!
If you’ve been waiting for our youth size clothing, the wait is now over. At least for pants. T-shirts will be on the way soon…. we hope :-) Supply is limited on the youth sizes, so get yours while they are in stock!
Our two newest products have been released, and we think they are some of our best ever. Why? Because of the message. There is a lot of jargon in the Parkour world and some bickering too that takes place between Parkour and Freerunning, Traceurs and Freerunners. In our quest for unity we’ve cut to the center of it all with another rallying cry. Run Free.
These items are on discounted pre-sale until Friday! If you love the design then pick it up before then when the price jumps 25%.
The Original Parkour Pants are back in stock. It’s a simple announcement, but one thing that makes us so proud to make the announcement is the quality of our pants. In fact, our Parkour pants have a few qualities that we think make them the best Parkour pants. Here is what those qualities are:
- Comfortable. You’ll figure this out the first time you put them on.
- Roomy. Lots of room in these. Especially at size Large and larger.
- Mobile/Flexible. In short, they won’t restrict your movement. Clearly this is super important so we made sure we have it.
- Durable. They won’t tear and they will last for more washes than you probably care to count.
- Big pockets. Our old pants had small pockets. We improved them and now they are just the right size.
- And best of all, they are on sale at only $29-$34, they won’t break your pocket book
- We like to say, “Everything a Traceur needs, nothing they don’t.”
We’re so convinced you’ll like our pants, that if you buy them and you don’t think they were worth the price, then we’ll give you a 100% refund including shipping costs. It’s all part of our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.
Throw up your Flight Man post. Or just Take Flight.

One thing you should know about Take Flight: we are leading the way in professionalism in the Parkour world. In addition to amazing customer service, a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee, and a great product that ships and arrives fast, we’ve recently redesigned our packaging to help take all that to next level. Two words: Custom Boxes.
From now on a large percentage of orders will be shipped in our “made for Take Flight” custom packaging. Here is a picture of what those boxes look like.
Please note that our claim in ‘leading professionalism in the Parkour world’ is not to say that there aren’t other organization out there that are doing a great job. In fact, in general, we’ve found that most PK organizations do a fantastic job at being professional! What we’re saying is that we are setting an example for how a “pure to Parkour” organization, can also be a successful entity that brings Parkour into a context that makes it acceptable by the business world. We’ve been doing it for more than four years and we keep leading the way and finding new ways to innovate.
How does that help the Parkour world, you ask? It’s simple. It provides a sophisticated business/commercial entity which helps legitimize the movement. On a community level this may not seem important, but on the grander scale it’s vital. And maybe not today, but definitely at the latest in the next few years you will see the worldwide political and cultural influence that Take Flight has had on Parkour that will have helped the entire Parkour world and Traceurs everywhere. Our custom boxes are one more step in that direction. A small step for sure, but another step none the less. And isn’t that what Parkour is all about? Continual improvement? We think so :-)
All larger explanation aside, if nothing else and if we may say so ourselves, these boxes look pretty darn cool.
Time for the battle cry: Take Flight.
A debate has begun at Take Flight HQ and we’ve decided to let you decide the answer. The simple question is, which shirt is the more essential Parkour tee:
The discussion goes back and forth as the pros for both tee are formidable. Here is a common conversation we’ve been hearing at the office between our shipping manager and TF founder Adam Dunlap:
Rick: “The Original Parkour Tee is definitely the essential Parkour tee. It was the first Parkour tee and it has 17 color combos now. I mean everyone just loves it! What is better than that?”
Adam: “Yeah, well that’s cool, but it’s not the essential Parkour tee. The Simply Parkour Tee is simpler and best embodies efficiency, so that makes it the essential tee.”
Rick: “Huh? No way. Look at the tee! That line underneath Parkour make no sense. That’s not efficient at all. Essential? Hardly.”
Adam: “Oh yeah?! Well then what’s with all the cracks in the Org PK Tee? How is that efficient and essential?! Plus the Org PK has no Stinger version. But with Stinger? Now we’re talking essential.”
The discussion goes on and on, round and round and it’s pretty much just a matter of opinion. So as stated we’ve decided to bring you in on it. Which tee do you think is the essential Parkour tee: the Original Parkour Tee or the Simply Parkour?

We’ve just released two new version of the Flight Man Beanie!!! Check them out below.
In typical fashion, new products are on sale. So you can get either of these Parkour beanies for only $9.95. And if we may say so, the Red beanie turned out so much better than we envisioned. It is H. O. T. But you can’t go wrong with either :-)

We’ve been working hard to keep pants in stock!! They sell so fast we can hardly do it! But with experience, planning, and investment for you guys, we keep rolling them out.
Right now we have 3 designs and 6 versions in stock of our Parkour Training Pants. You can pick yours up now and they’ll be on your doorstep in 3-4 days.
Two announcements in one blog post:
#1. The Parkour Skyline Tee is back!! It was one of the Original 6 Parkour Tees. It had a 3 year run until we took it off the shelves, but by popular demand we brought it back. And it’s priced at only $12 and $14 color depending making it one of the best deal in our store!
#2. We added a new color: Royal Blue!! In our opinion this is the best color of the tee we’ve ever made. “HOT” might be the right word. Either that or “Classy.” The other word that comes to mind is simply “Parkour.
Take Flight is NOT some heat-press-on-design-label clothing brand like the Parkour world has seen in the past. We’re the first to bring real Parkour clothing to Traceurs worldwide. What does that mean? It means that our new Parkour Skyline Royal Blue Tee is already produced with long lasting inks on a wear tested custom shirts. And if you order it today, it will arrive on your doorstep ready to wear in about 4 days. For only $12 sometimes we even wonder how we do it. But then we remember. Parkour Love.
We just keep rolling them out. That’s our promise to bring new and exciting new Parkour clothing, gear, and style to match every Traceur’s mood and style.
The newest hit the Original Parkour Tee in NEON GREEN!!! Yes, we’re that excited about it. This came especially requested by Traceurs on our page and, get this, David Belle (he apparently loves this color combination).
The shirt is out and ready for pickup. If you order it today it will arrive in 3-5 business days. Now that’s taking flight :-)
