ABOUT ROKA SPORTS
ROKA is a performance multisport brand that was founded in 2011 by Rob Canales and Kurt Spenser, two former varsity swimmers from Stanford University, who, after being frustrated by the wetsuit offerings on the market, set out to make the fastest wetsuit on the planet. After two years of product development, the ROKA team launched their patent-pending Maverick wetsuit line this past March. In its their first season, ROKA products have seen widespread acceptance by elite and developing swimmers alike. ROKA pro athletes had 12 major wins and 13 major First Out of the Waters, including the Ironman World Championship, the ITU WTS Grand Final, the HyVee 5150 Elite Cup Championship, several Ironman® and Ironman® 70.3 races, and more. ROKA is based in Dallas, Texas with employees in California and Colorado. Learn more at www.rokasports.com.
