IRONMAN World Championships, Lionel Sanders, Sponsorship, triathlon -

We're very excited to announce a partnership with ITU long distance world champion and IRONMAN champion, Lionel Sanders of Canada. Sanders was second in Kona last year and is one of the most consistent and exciting long-distance athletes in the world. First and foremost, I've tested a lot of wetsuits. A LOT of wetsuits. The blueseventy HELIX tested fastest among all that were tested by me, personally.  Additionally, once I got to know the people behind the company and what they stand for, it really resonated well with me and the partnership was very natural.

Helix, IRONMAN, Phil Graves, Sponsorship, triathlon -

We're proud to announce a new partnership with Phil Graves, the youngest ever IRONMAN winner. Graves, who is known for his phenomenal cycling ability and front pack swim, will take on four IRONMAN events this season, including both British long course events.  I’m really grateful of the support from blueseventy, which came about through a chance meeting in the swimming pool at David Lloyd in York. The Helix has always been recognized as a really fast suit and has a great reputation amongst professional athletes. Graves’ won IRONMAN UK back in 2009 when he was just 20. Now 28, he hopes...
