Every female that does triathlon knows that we don’t treat our stuff nicely.
It will get used and abused to the hilt.
Triathletes’ swimsuits are a part of their gear, and as such, will take the ultimate beating at both swim practices held at pools with chlorine and the saltwater ocean swims. Every triathlete I know has a bag of wet gear in their car that may actually sit in the car for hours before even getting home for proper washings and care.
What this meant to Stephanie, Kandu Sport founder and inventor of the Sportkini, was she knew that she needed to build the most durable triathlon swimsuit possible. She not only was one of these athletes who was brutal with her gear but her friends, training partners and competitors were her customers and making a sub-par triathlon swimsuit wouldn’t cut it.
