In 1983, Christal Nylin, a Kona, Hawaii resident and athlete, noticed that the transition area of Kona's Ironman Triathlon was more like a changing room than a mere parking lot for race gear. So she began experimenting with swimming, biking and running clothing, combining aspects of two or more pieces and eventually developed one- and two-piece suits that could be comfortably worn over the duration of an Ironman without the need for more garments. Her colorful fabrics and solution-driven designs quickly gained popularity and Zoot Sports was born. Today, Zoot continues this tradition of advanced problem-solving products for multisport athletes and they're popular with top racers everywhere.
Zoot's tri-specific clothing combines fun styling with the best in moisture management and compression for maximum training and racing comfort. From singlets to racesuits to shorts, Zoot's high-tech clothing lets you focus on your multisport goals in pure comfort. And, with bold colors and even shorts available in multiple lengths, there's a fit and style for everyone.
Plus, Zoot offers amazing wetsuits to help you slice through the water like a shark. These combine the slickest coatings and best neoprene with Zoot's innovative designs for the fastest and most comfortable suits going. Whether it's a swim in a chilly lake or a warm ocean, Zoot has a wetsuit for your next open-water swim that you'll love.
In 2008, Zoot also debuted the first triathlon-specific running shoes. They are designed to handle the change in running biomechanics that occurs while riding the bike leg. And, since they are tri-specific, they're fast and easy to slip on and are meant to be worn without socks, saving you precious transition time too.
