Recon Instruments, the award winning technology company behind the world’s first consumer Heads-up Displays (HUD) for sports, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the 2013 GoPro® IRONMAN® World Championship which takes place Saturday, October 12 in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i.
“Our partnership with IRONMAN is a fantastic opportunity for Recon Instruments to showcase our newest product, Recon Jet,” said Recon CEO and co-founder Dan Eisenhardt. “We understand the requirements of athletes in extreme conditions having shipped more than 50,000 units of our snow goggle heads-up display. Now, with the Jet, we have a killer product specially designed for triathletes and cyclists. Triathletes will be able to access all their key data — including speed, heart rate, distance, time, cadence, power and vertical – instantly, direct-to-eye and without distraction. For the IRONMAN athlete, the performance gains in terms of training accuracy, race course performance, convenience and safety are significant.”
Recon Instruments will be integrated into the IRONMAN Live webcast, including a “Win A Jet” contest, where triathletes and fans can visit the Recon website for a chance to win a Recon Jet before they become available in stores. This coverage will be streaming live at www.ironman.com. Recon Instruments representatives will be available to meet by appointment during the GoPro IRONMAN® World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i or at the IRONMAN Village.
