Menlo Park, CA (May 15, 2022)- Speed Hound is looking forward to playing the supporting role in their emerging partnership with USMES. This collaboration is in the early stages, but the ideology behind both companies aligns perfectly, making this collaboration a natural fit.

“Recovery and rehabilitation keep our active duty and Veterans Fit for Duty and Fit for Life,” said USMES Executive Director Mandy Midgett. “We are thrilled to partner with sports recovery leader Speed Hound and offer their Pro Performance Recovery System and accessories to our hard working military members.”

In the weeks ahead, Speed Hound will be working with USMES to support current, retired, and veteran members of the US Armed Forces that have chosen to participate in the program. USMES started in 2009 as an elite cycling team but has since blossomed into the multi-sport recreational, club, development, and athletic program that it is today.

Recognizing that 75% of USMES members have some type of disability (including invisible disabilities like PTSD, TBI and hearing loss) USMES integrates wounded and non-wounded team members into a cohesive community of fitness advocates. And, more than 51% of USMES members are currently using endurance sports for rehabilitation from serious injury. This means that recovery is an absolute must for USMES teams, and Speed Hound is beyond prepared to lend their support. 

Sam Chi, founder of Speed Hound, plans to contribute a portion of affiliate sales to USMES to further support services provided to member athletes.
