Introducing the TYR Avictor - The Ultimate Advantage

Born out of a collaboration between the industry’s top experts and the world’s most elite swimmers, the Avictor showcases an unprecedented combination of advanced features. The FINA-approved suit maximizes performance and gives athletes the ultimate advantage over their competition. The Avictor is proudly manufactured in the U.S.A of imported goods, which adds to the long list of features that sets it apart from its competitors. 

Cutting-edge Hydrosphere Technology optimizes body position by causing water to surround the fabric of the suit, creating a visible hydrospheric effect. As a result, drag is reduced and speed and efficiency are boosted.

Designed with proprietary Speed Dry Fabrication, the Avictor minimizes dry time and rapidly repels water. This ensures athletes experience a dry, lightweight and comfortable fit for every race. 

State-of-the-art Super Flex Bonding stretches and recovers with the body allowing free range of motion and compression at the same time. The fully bonded seams conform to the swimmer’s body and provide a durable, 360 degree stretch. The result is a precisely fitted, ultra compressive suit that maximizes core stabilization while allowing 100% natural movement and flexibility. 

In addition to the technical components, the Avictor’s revolutionary, bold print will undeniably turn heads on deck.

The TYR Avictor will be available for purchase at select dealers and TYR.com January 2015.

Hydration, Performance, Recovery: Introducing TYR Endurance Sport

TYR Endurance Sport is a high caliber hydration system that combines endurance, performance and recovery ingredients to enable athletes to maximize and sustain their full performance for prolonged periods of time. TYREndurancePress2013Huntington Beach, CA – April 17, 2013 –  At TYR, our mission has always been to provide athletes with products they need to obtain peak performance through innovation and design.  TYR Endurance Sport is no exception.

TYR formulated a high caliber hydration system that combines endurance, performance and recovery ingredients to enable athletes to maximize and sustain their full potential for prolonged periods of time.

“TYR is all about creating innovative products to help athletes push their limits and reach their full potential,” expressed Matthew DiLorenzo, chief executive officer of TYR. “The current sports drink industry has not seen innovation in over 30 years, and athletes need more than what is being offered by conventional sports drinks.  TYR Endurance Sport takes the traditional sports drink to the next level.  It is the first of its kind to combine EMIQ, Carbohydrate Complex and EGCG in a flavorful hydrating format.”

Quercetin is an antioxidant that promotes the body’s natural ability to manage inflammation, both during and after the exertion, for more stamina and faster recovery.  TYR Endurance Sport incorporates a superior form of Quercetin called Enzymatically Modified Isoquercitrin (EMIQ) that is 100% water soluble and has been shown in pre-clinical studies to be absorbed by the body at higher rates than other forms of Quercetin.

Carbohydrate Complex utilizes multiple gastrointestinal transport mechanisms to deliver more performance without digestive side effects.

Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) is a catechin commonly found in Green Tea Extract that supports human metabolism, improving efficiency and increasing absorption of other ingredients.

Not to be confused with basic sports drinks that offer hydration but no functional benefits, TYR Endurance Sport is strategically built to generate and sustain performance under the most enduring athletic conditions.

TYR Endurance Sport is currently offered in three delicious flavors; Punch, Limao and Orancia.  Drank by the likes of Ironman champion TJ Tollakson and 4X Olympic gold medalist Matt Grevers, this beverage is intended for high intensity training where excuses are not an option.

“I am very discerning when it comes to my sports drinks since my body needs optimal fuel for \ training and competition,” said Ironman champion TJ Tollakson.  “TYR Endurance Sport provides cutting edge performance nutrition to help me achieve optimum results from my training and racing with flavors that I love. The taste is sweet, yet not overbearing and has the perfect amount of calories per serving delivered through multiple carbohydrate transport systems. I’m staying in front by choosing TYR Endurance Sport.”

TYR Endurance Sport is a breakthrough in sports science, providing athletes with the Full- Spectrum Formula they need to hydrate, perform and recover.
