Triathlon: USA Triathlon Renews Partnership with SweatVac

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 9, 2009) -- USA Triathlon (USAT) members, elite athletes, and sanctioned event race directors will continue to have access to quality performance headwear, thanks to a renewed partnership with SweatVac Performance Wear.

SweatVac will serve as the Official Performance Headwear Sponsor of USAT. The multi-year agreement will allow SweatVac to support the USAT National Championship program and Trade Team while continuing to offer USAT sanctioned race directors competitive pricing on their custom headwear and tech t-shirts.

Since beginning a partnership in 2006, both organizations have experienced significant growth while enjoying the mutually beneficial relationship. This latest renewal will continue that relationship through 2012.

“SweatVac has been providing USAT athletes with exceptional headwear since 2006,” said Tim Yount, senior vice president of marketing and communications at USA Triathlon. “Their caps live up to the name, truly keeping sweat at bay and surpassing all expectations for comfort and function.”

The SweatVac® System used in USAT headwear is a multi-layer system which places Transpor® fabric against the skin and wicking layers on the outside.

“We’re excited that we’re continuing our partnership with USAT. They’re a great organization to be affiliated with and also a great group of people to work with,” said John Okon, president of SweatVac. “We’ve got some new and exciting products for the triathlon market coming up and we’re thrilled to offer them as official USAT items.”

SweatVac products can be found in running, cycling and endurance athletic stores. SweatVac also customizes their products for events, races, and corporate branding.
