Multisport apparel specialist Wattie Ink has confirmed its new partnership with pro triathlete, Josh Amberger. Via this partnership, Amberger will race and train in Wattie Ink apparel, as well as work closely with the company’s design and development team… ‘to help us continue in our quest of making the best performance apparel in the world.’
Based in Brisbane, Australia, 26-year-old Josh Amberger is a IM 70.3 specialist with many notable wins and podium appearances under his belt.
Wattie Ink Founder and CEO, Sean ‘Wattie’ Watkins, said of the partnership, “We are proud to have Josh as part of the Wattie Ink. Team. He’s an exciting, young pro who approaches his career and racing with the same passion, work ethic and attention to detail that we pour into our brand.
“We have loved watching him grow as an athlete and personality in the sport of triathlon and are honoured to have him as a member of the W Family.”
Josh Amberger added, “I’m stoked to be joining the Wattie Ink. team. I’ve seen the passion and hard work the crew have put into the brand, and the high standard of garments that have been produced as a result. That’s something I’m really excited to be a part of.
He continued, “Last week, we worked on my first custom speedsuit for 2016 and I started by giving them some illustration ideas. The next day we had totally original sketches from their artists and I was able to approve the design. It was fully produced in the US and then posted to me in Australia then next day.
“The finished product has blown my mind, and the speed of the process has set a new standard of industry productivity. I look forward to rocking the W and laying it down on the race course in 2016 and beyond!”
Josh Amberger ‘s custom ‘Wattie Ink. Death Metal Speedsuit’ will debut at IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai on 29 January.
