Revolution3 Triathlon (Rev3) has confirmed that it is partnering with the ‘Wattie Ink.’ apparel brand for 2016.
“Wattie Ink. is not only manufacturing very high quality triathlon apparel, but they are making everything right here in the USA. These are two things I love about this partnership and the synergies with Rev3 that exist,” said Eric Opdyke, Rev3 President.
Wattie Ink. will be the official apparel brand to the Rev3 Triathlon Races Series as well as its 53-person Brand Ambassador program, ‘Team Rev3’. Wattie Ink. will be ‘delivering Rev3 handcrafted, world-class apparel with the highest level of performance, style and quality to ensure their athletes are comfortable and looking good on-course.’
“We are beyond stoked to be partnering with Rev3. Revolution3 Triathlon is an independently owned, operated, American made family business, which lines up perfectly with our, ‘Made In The USA’ business model,” said Sean ‘Wattie’ Watkins, Wattie Ink. CEO.
Additionally, for the third year in a row, Rev3 will once again partner with Team Wattie Ink., a 100 member team sponsored by the apparel brand.
Having separated from its partnership with Challenge Family in 2015, Rev3 is now positioned as an independently owned, operated, and American made family business. As Rev3 points out, ‘We believe that life is about creating experiences, and not about accumulating things. Our number one goal is to provide an environment that is safe and memorable for not only the athlete, but for their friends and family! We have put together the best team in the industry that all share in the same passion and values, which allows us to create a truly, one of a kind, authentic experience designed to put our customers first.’
Founded in Southern California in December 2009, Wattie Ink. has evolved from a sports marketing agency representing some of the world’s best triathletes to an apparel company dedicated to creating the finest gear in the world. ‘Inspired by the blood, sweat and tears of its athletes, who give their hearts and souls to the sport everyday in pursuit of greatness, the Wattie Ink. brand was born.’
Wattie Ink. apparel is designed, tested and manufactured in the company’s factory in Southern California with the intent to inspire, motivate and challenge athletes to follow their dreams, take risks, and never give up. Wattie Ink. adds that it is ‘a brand focused and committed to the sport of triathlon, its courageous athletes, and delivering them gear with the highest level of performance, style and quality.’
