Founded in 1987, Quintana Roo was built on producing the first swim-specific wetsuit that completely changed triathlon racing. Soon after this, QR created the first triathlon-specific bike that was designed “from the handlebars back”. Bike course records quickly fell and so did run splits as the bike allowed athletes to be more comfortable coming off the bike. Quintana Roo had set the standard for others to follow and as always happens, other companies caught up with their product development and triathletes had lots of wetsuits and tri bikes to choose from. The UK market is particularly marketing driven and there will be triathletes racing today who have never heard of QR or know of their heritage. But QR have not gone! They are back producing wetsuits and they have continued to develop bikes for all levels of triathlete and we are incredibly excited to have them at Tri Harder.
