Aqua Sphere UK is reportedly enjoying another year of increased sales from its award winning goggles, masks and snorkeling equipment. The swim and triathlon specialist has ‘systematically nurtured steady growth for its award winning hardware and further enhanced its UK team this year’ with the appointment of a triathlon coach and team GB triathlete.
Martin Newton, Sales & Marketing Manager, said “Our hard goods, and most pleasingly our Vista and Kayenne goggles, have again enjoyed continued growth and it’s really gratifying to see our investment in technological design innovation and high quality construction continuing to pay off.”
The company added that sales of its Kayenne and Vista goggles, which are popular with the triathlete as well as swimming communities, are up nearly 20% year on year.
Newton noted, “We continue to score highly in independent wear tests and were delighted to recently be awarded a Gold Award from a leading consumer parenting web site for our ingenious Seal Kid 2 mask. Furthermore, our partnership with Olympic legend Michael Phelps, showcased to great excitement at ISPO earlier this year, has thrust us firmly into the competitive swim arena and we are very excited about new product developments from this collaboration being unveiled over the next few months.”
He continued, “Our performance swimwear continues to excel and customers appreciate our ethos of breaking new ground in terms of comfort and performance. For example, our Aqua Light collection is the first ever collection of water repellent swim suits made specifically for fitness and recreational swimmers, retaining less water and drying six times faster than traditional fabrics.
“This ensures the swimwear feel far less cold and clammy on leaving the pool and hanging around poolside, and makes it far easier to transport after a swim. It’s this dedication to bringing new heights of comfort and performance to the everyday swimmer which generates tangible consumer loyalty.”
