Quintana Roo is our exclusive bike partner! QR invented both the triathlon-specific bicycle and wetsuit. The same creative juices that created the innovative fit and features that first made triathletes go faster are flowing again today. In 2009, the goal for Quintana Roo is to completely reinvent the way triathletes can use their bike to gain an advantage. We weren't looking to shave a second with frame design, but really find a way to cheat the wind all while designing beneath the most refined FIST fit and position parameters. Bikes have evolved a little over the years, but the tri bike has essentially stayed the same. In 2009 Quintana Roo wanted to bring a bike to triathletes that was as groundbreaking as the Superform in 1989.

Today the SRM Training System has become standard equipment for the world's leading professionals in cycling and triathlon such as Lance Armstrong, Greg Lemond, Mario Cippolini, Paolo Bettini, Erik Zabel, Nicole Cooke, Kristin Armstrong, Amber Neben, Sabine Spitz, Mark Cavendish, Bert Grabsch, Normann Stadler and many others, for national teams, sport universities, coaches and all recreational athletes who take training seriously.

Headsweats Perspiration Technology Headwear® was founded in the winter of 1998 by shoe industry veteran and obsessed cyclist, Alan Romick. Frustrated by the perils of heavy sweat blindness, migrating sunscreen, and odd sunburn pattern on his head through his helmet, he set out to develop headgear that worked. Encouraged by the constant feedback within the local cycling community, he took the best attributes of what was available and improved on them. Starting with one product -- The Cotton Classic -- available at first in just four colors, Alan's products quietly became elite athlete's secret weapon around the world, eventually expanding to over 17 different products available in over 140 different colors and styles. Today the Headsweats line includes washable, airlight, supremely wicking hats that now dominate the triathlon, rowing, adventure racing worlds. The success and a spirit of innovation at Headsweats, along with unsurpassed customer service, helped to establish Headsweats as the front runner in a very competitive cycling category. Alan continues to work relentlessly to bring the most cutting-edge, advanced and fun headwear products to new markets for construction workers, chefs, police forces, snow-boarders, and marathoners alike.

nuun (pronounced 'noon') was originally the brainchild of a student and professor from the tuck school, dartmouth college's business program. new england was great for fall cycling, but the two became frustrated in their search for an electrolyte hydration solution to use in remote places. they longed for a lightweight, easily-dissolvable product that was free of carbohydrates. Dissatisfied by pre-made and powdered options on the market, they set about developing their own solution. the answer came in the form of a simple tab that would come to be known as "nuun".
Fast forward a couple years, past endless sample versions (including those that dissolved slower than granite) and nuun is pioneering portable electrolyte hydration for athletes and those with active lifestyles. just drop a nuun tab in your water bottle whether running, cycling, hiking, adventure racing, kayaking, golfing, or traveling, and store the tube in your jersey pocket or pack.

Slat Belt Treadmills by WOODWAY USA feature an original (internationally-patented) design that was developed in response to conventional treadmill designs. Our Engineers set out to develop a safe and comfortable running surface for humans that also reduced the friction and wear associated with the conventional conveyor belt style. To do this they started with a ball-bearing transportation system and then created an entirely new slat style running surface. This combined system provides a running surface of 38-43 type A shore hardness, which was found by the Deutsche Sporthochschule in Cologne, Germany to be the ideal softness to eliminate the harmful shock to connective tissue, while not changing proper biomechanics. Additionally, the low friction ball bearing transportation system alleviates the forces to all mechanical and electrical parts, resulting in less wear, less maintenance, fewer repairs, lower electric bills and an overall longer treadmill life.
