Adrian Santic - triathlete
Hammer NutritionIn 2008 Adrian had developed food intolerance due to an antibiotic prescription. An effective treatment requires a wheat-free and low sugar diet. Energy bars and sugary sports drinks were making him sick. Since hearing about Hammer Nutrition and their gluten free sports fuels made with natural ingredients, he's been using Perpetuem fuel, Recoverite recovery drink, caffeine energy gels, and the Hammer power bars. Other brand's sport foods are made with wheat and refined sugar and aren’t anything more than glorified candy bars. Hammer fuels have kept Adrian fueled better than any other sport food he's tried before.
OrcaScott Unsworth, a former New Zealand age group triathlon champion, realized that the wetsuits used at the time were completely inadequate for swimming. In 1992 Scott started up a company called Performance Speedsuits Ltd, based out of his parent's house in Auckland, New Zealand. He began to develop his "Speedsuits", which featured greater flexibility and buoyancy than other existing wetsuits. The business started with Scott selling his Speedsuits from the back of his car at swim meets and triathlon events. The Speedsuits quickly gained a following amongst athletes and the business started to grow. Scott was taking his first steps towards introducing what would become Orca, to the world.
SpecializedSpecialized was founded in 1974 by Mike Sinyard, a cycling enthusiast who sold his Volkswagen Bus for $1,500 to fund a cycle tour of Europe, where he bought handlebars and stems made by Campagnolo and Cinelli to take back to the US. Sinyard started out importing Italian bike components that were difficult to find in the United States, but the company began to produce its own bike parts by 1976. Adrian rides the Shiv Pro featuring a super light FACT IS 10r carbon frame with carbon aerobar and SRAM Red drivetrain. Specialized ignored UCI rules and designed the Shiv exclusively for triathlon: with unmatched aerodynamics, the Fuelselage integrated hydration system, and a huge range of fit adjustability.
