H5G Introduces New Lines of Fashion-and-Function
Bowling Pants for Men, Practice Attire for Women
New Berlin, Wis. (September 19, 2017) – H5G, the trend-setting leader in bowling sports apparel, has introduced new lines of fit-and-function bowling pants for men, and fit-and-fashion practice attire for women bowlers, H5G President Todd Molbeck announced today.
“Our company set out to create products that would change the perception of bowling,” Molbeck said. “We’ve accomplished that objective through our line of high-quality, professional-looking products, so now’s the time to take the next step in creating a new image for bowling and bowlers.”
H5G is addressing its newest goals with a line of “pro fit” bowling pants for men that are designed for fit, flexibility, comfort and support, Molbeck said. The new product line has been approved by the United States Bowling Congress for collegiate competition, expanding the ability of collegiate teams to establish and promote their identities.
The athletic design of the new “athleisure” pants provide stretch and comfort in all the right places, earning high praise among Professional Bowlers Association stars who have worn them.
“I must say I was very impressed with the pants,” said PBA Tour champion Kyle Troup. “First off, the look is very sleek. I love the fabric and feel of the pants. They are a bit more form-fitting and truer to size around the waist. I think these pants are pretty amazing. It’s definitely the nicest pair of black pants I own.”
“They felt great and are very comfortable to wear,” fellow PBA Tour champion Sean Rash added.
The new women’s signature practice gear, a fashion statement in the vein of “yoga” style pants, has also drawn rave reviews.
“I absolutely love H5G’s new practice gear,” said Professional Women’s Bowling Association titlist Danielle McEwan. “They have instantly become one of my favorite pairs of pants. They fit perfectly and are so comfortable to practice, work out in, and even for travel! My favorite part is the high waist line and snug but flexible fit that allows me to do any movement I want without having to adjust them back into place.”
Former collegiate All-American and current PWBA competitor Lindsay Boomershine agrees.
"The new practice gear from H5G is simply the best! It looks professional in any situation but it’s also comfortable, fashion forward and breathable,” Boomershine said. “H5G really takes its athletes into consideration with their high quality, wearable but fashionable products! I love my H5G Gear!"
“The new practice gear from H5G is breathable, lightweight and fits like practice or workout attire should,” added Elysia Current. “I don't have to worry about sweating, and seeing sweat marks all over or feeling ‘swampy.’ I know when I wear H5G I'm going to look and feel great, and I’ll be ready to give it my best on the lanes and in the gym.”
H5G apparel was created to look beyond the conventional ideas of industry standards. Engineered to optimize performance and comfort, H5G offers some of the most progressive and original shirts on the market in addition to its newest products. But it’s not just about the fashion. H5G’s commitment to excellence and a passion that redefines what is possible has led to innovative performance material that keeps you dry, is resistance to wrinkles, and soft to the touch.

H5G Named Official Jersey of Elite Youth Tour, Signs
Team USA Standout Diandra Asbaty as Staff Member
New Berlin, Wis. (September 12, 2017) – H5G, the leader in bowling sports apparel, has been named the official jersey of the Elite Youth Tour and has signed EYT co-founder Diandra Asbaty as a spokesperson and member of the company’s high-profile staff of champions, H5G President Todd Molbeck announced today.
The Elite Youth Tour, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was founded in 2012 by world bowling champions Jason Belmonte of Australia and Asbaty, a Chicago resident. The organization, which focuses on youth development and leadership skills in addition to scholarship tournaments, was born out of love and passion for the sport of bowling.
“The Elite Youth Tour is focused on positive youth development,” Asbaty said. “We align ourselves with companies that are interested in investing in the lives of future leaders. The partnership between H5G and the Elite Youth Tour goes beyond the bowling lanes. We both realize that influencing bowlers off the lanes will have a much bigger impact than just on the lanes.”
Asbaty, a 15-time member of Team USA and winner of the 2012 United States Bowling Congress Queens title, and Belmonte, a three-time Professional Bowlers Tour Player of the Year and winner of eight PBA major titles, joined hands to fill a void with the Elite Youth Tour. In its brief existence, EYT has helped four young bowlers earn berths on the Junior Team USA and has awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships. In addition to group-coaching sessions that focus on technique and game strategy, Asbaty offers one-on-one coaching.
Beyond bowling, Asbaty also believes a person’s appearance plays a role in expressing the individual’s personality. That’s another reason why she aligned herself with H5G.
“Anyone that knows me knows that I have a love for design and fashion,” she said. “I believe that expressing yourself through your clothing helps to define your character. Being on the H5G team allows me the freedom to show who I really am.
“Besides, it’s the first thing people see when they look at me,” she added. “The H5G designs are a complete reflection of who I am. My first coach ever once gave me pretty great advice: ‘It doesn’t matter how you bowl as long as you look good.’”
“The Elite Youth Tour and Diandra Asbaty are perfect fits for H5G’s mission,” Molbeck said. “Diandra leads by example, in both how she acts and what she wears. It’s privilege to have her on our team.”
