Quintana Roo invented the 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 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.
In 1981 founder Dan Empfield competed in the first Ironman on Hawaii's Big Island. As a pioneer of the sport, he envisioned a bright future for it, but felt something was lacking: High-quality equipment that accommodated the needs of triathletes.
