A lot of sport is about going beyond your own limits. Only those who keep setting new stimuli and regularly go where it hurts will get better. Only those who are willing to give their all when it counts will surpass themselves and push their mental and physical limits. Where these limits lie is largely determined by external influences. Of physical quantities - clearly measurable, but often unpredictable. For example, very high temperatures during a competition represent a great additional burden in addition to the physical exertion. This can severely limit our performance.
Pushing the boundaries of physics - that is what motivates our small team of product developers. We want to go ahead and rethink products and technologies from the ground up to support athletes in the best possible way. We want to make the seemingly impossible possible. To do this, we regularly think outside the box, use approaches from a wide variety of scientific fields and adapt them precisely to the needs of athletes.
In 2018, together with Jan Frodeno, we started to develop a completely new concept for temperature regulation in triathlon. He has already proven several times that he is able to perform enormously even under difficult external conditions. But what if you could use an innovative form of thermoregulation to support your body even better in extreme heat? In response to this question, we have developed a revolutionary triathlon suit together: the Verge Aero Sleeve Tri Suit. It is the only tri suit that makes use of the innovative Graphene Gridflow Technology: thanks to highly thermally conductive Graphene Plus, which is printed on the inside of the suit, the resulting body heat is dissipated from the middle of the body and distributed over a large area. In combination with the Advanced Compartment System, cold can even be channeled to selected parts of the body during the competition by storing sponges with cold water or ice in the pocket channeling system.
On October 12, 2019, Jan was able to celebrate his historic third victory at IRONMAN Hawaii and a new course record with this suit.
Last year we offered the Verge Aero Sleeve Tri Suit in a limited edition - with an overwhelming response. This has given us the security of being able to manufacture the suit, which is quite complex to produce, in larger quantities.
The Verge Aero Race Suit – serially available from today.
