The new Custom TriTek Elite Collection is designed with an upper abdomen turbolator that keeps turbulence close to the body and improves the body sliding motion in water. This collection offers a great fit and follows body contour with design of several panels located in strategic places to reduce water resistance and improves hydrodynamics. The windtunnel tested Tritek fabric improves aerodynamics for speeds ranging from 15 to 45 mph, and it also has a water repellent treatment to absorb less water.
“For 2010, we have really revolutionized the triathlon scene offering the latest innovations in apparel,” said Pierre Perron, International Marketing Director. “We have spent countless hours with Pro Triathlete, Chris Legh and countless hours in windtunnels testing and retesting until perfection was achieved. I think our efforts have paid off and 2010 will be monumental for our participation in the triathlon industry.”
