Menlo Park, CA (March 7, 2022)- Earlier today, Speed Hound announced their collaboration with Dare2Tri, an organization focused on breaking down barriers to make fitness accessible for all, regardless of physical ability. “Our brand’s mission are well aligned and Speed Hound is beyond thrilled to be joining forces with Dare2Tri in the quest to equalize sports and fitness,” said Sam Chi, Founder and CEO of Speed Hound.
Although the official partnership is new, it’s been in the works since Sam met co-founder and director, Dan Tun, of Dare2Tri at the Clash Daytona event. The collaboration is a natural fit, with both Speed Hound and Dare2Tri sharing the vision to provide the resources for everyday athletes to cross the finish line and realize their fitness goals. Some Dare2Tri athletes have already been using Speed Hound’s FREEDOM bike travel case, it’s a perfect travel solution for handcycles.
Much of the mission behind Dare2Tri is founded within the community they’ve created as an adaptive sports organization. Dare2Tri hosts a variety of events, some directly fitness-related like clinics and camps, while others are geared toward strengthening bonds within the community, like the paralympic watch party. And this year, Speed Hound will be available for many of these events.
The partnership is supported by individuals like Robert Anthony, a Speed Hound and Dare2Tri athlete:
"Our community of multi-sport has changed my life, I am a Speed Hound Athlete & Dare2Tri Athlete. To know both of these amazing organizations are partnering to inspire and create a platform for others is exciting!”
With so many Dare2Tri athletes overcoming physical challenges, recovery is a big part of the events. Speed Hound will fund the recovery efforts by donating their Pro Performance Recovery Systems for Dare2Tri athletes to use on-site during their programs. Dare2Tri doesn’t just focus on programs for paratriathletes, they also host events like ambulatory run clinics and even adaptive sports clinics for children.
Dare2Tri does have several programs that are geared towards paratriathletes, just like their name says. These include multisports clinics, the Train2Race camp, and Learn2Tri camp. And we can’t leave out the Kids Tri camp! As you can see, Dare2Tri is zeroed in on adaptive sports and fitness for all, and Speed Hound is ready to join their efforts.
Speed Hound is a leading recovery brand that leveraged dynamic compression technology used in hospital settings and applied it to sports recovery.

With zone toggles that allows more targeted therapy, this recovery system can be tailored to each Dare2Tri athlete’s needs, leading to a more personalized and effective recovery experience.
In addition to financial and product support, Speed Hound will be lending a hand during events for athlete support and supplement fundraising efforts.
