June 19, 2012 – Revolution3 Triathlon, the leader in family-friendly triathlon events, has announced that renowned triathlon specific bike company Quintana Roo has come on board as a series sponsor for the next 3 years. Quintana Roo is the official bike sponsor of the Rev3 race series. The Rev3 race expos will now carry Quintana Roo bikes, along with the Rev3 online store.
Quintana Roo invented triathlon-specific bicycle. The same creative juices that created the innovative fit and features that first made triathletes go faster are flowing again today. In 2009, the goal for Quintana Roo changed to completely reinvent the way triathletes can use their bike to gain an advantage. The result is the most talked about bike in the field – the CD0.1. Named after its incredibly low coefficient of drag, this bike is truly groundbreaking. Quintana Roo doesn’t believe the wind tunnel is a marketing tool like most companies: this bike was developed in one.
“We’re excited to grow a new partnership with the Rev3 Triathlon Series. They are committed to making the athlete experience not only more dynamic, but also family-friendly. This series gives us face-to-face interaction with all levels of triathletes, at all of the different distances in a festival-like atmosphere.”
~ Mac McEneaney (Director of Sales for Quintana Roo)
Rev3 Tri produces an ever-growing number of races in the United States and Costa Rica. Ranging from Olympic to full distance triathlons, Rev3 now has more than ten events that cater to athletes and their families. Rev3 provides a memorable and special race experience for athletes, and programs a wide variety of activities for spouses, kids and support crew. Race weekends feature a host of events, ranging from family scavenger hunts to kid’s races or family movie nights.
“Rev 3 continues to grow because we evolve and learn from every race, and constantly incorporate that experience in each subsequent race,” says Charlie Patten, president of Rev3 Tri. “Partnering with a company like QUINTANA ROO who understands that devotion to innovation is a great fit for us. We’re so excited to have them as part of the Rev3 Tri race experience and I think both of our missions align very closely.”

About QUINTANA ROO
Quintana Roo invented both the triathlon-specific bicycle and wetsuit. The same creative juices that created the innovative fit and features that first made triathletes go faster are flowing again today. In 2009, the goal for Quintana Roo is to completely reinvent the way triathletes can use their bike to gain an advantage. We weren’t looking to shave a second with frame design, but really find a way to cheat the wind all while designing beneath the most refined FIST fit and position parameters. Bikes have evolved a little over the years, but the tri bike has essentially stayed the same. In 2009 Quintana Roo wanted to bring a bike to triathletes that was as groundbreaking as the Superform in 1989.
The result is the most talked about bike in the field – the CD0.1. Named after it’s incredibly low coefficient of drag, this bike is truly groundbreaking just like Ray’s Superform. We don’t believe the wind tunnel is a marketing tool like most companies: this bike was developed in one.
In wetsuits, we wanted to raise the bar even further. We added a new material to a crucial spot on the Superfull and the result is a suit that fits, feels, and performs even better. Our suits have always been known for their fit as well as their speed, and on all models we went back to our design vault to dial in all 18 men’s and women’s sizes.
