In sport, a lot revolves around going beyond one's own limit. Only those who constantly set new stimuli and regularly go where it hurts will get better. Only those who are prepared to give everything when it counts will surpass themselves and push their mental and physical limits. Where these limits lie is largely determined by external influences. Physical factors - clearly measurable, but often unpredictable. For example, very high temperatures during a competition represent a great additional strain in addition to the physical exertion. This can severely limit our performance.
Pushing the boundaries of physics is what drives our small team of product developers. We want to lead the way 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, take approaches from various areas of science and adapt them exactly to the needs of athletes.
In 2018, for example, we started working with Jan Frodeno to develop a completely new concept of temperature regulation in Triathlon . It is true that he has already proven several times that he is able to deliver an enormous physical performance even under difficult external conditions. But what if an innovative form of thermoregulation could support his body even better when it is very hot? In answer 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: highly heat-conductive Graphene Plus, which is printed on the inside of the suit, conducts the resulting body heat away from the center of the body and distributes it over a large area. In combination with the Advanced Compartment System, cold can even be directed to selected parts of the body during the race by stowing sponges with cold water or ice in the pocket guide system.
On October 12th, 2019, Jan celebrated his historic third victory at IRONMAN Hawaii and a new course record in this suit.
Last year, we offered the Verge Aero Sleeve Tri Suit in a limited edition -- with an overwhelming response. This gave us the confidence to produce the suit, which is quite expensive to produce, in larger quantities.
The Verge Aero Race Suit - available in series as of today.
