Menlo Park, CA (May 10th, 2022)- There’s a new dynamic duo in the pro cycling world, with Speed Hound partnering with DNA Pro Cycling as the recovery sponsor. DNA Pro Cycling heads into their 10th year as a women’s cycling team, with continued cycling success in road, gravel, and mountain bike races.
The 11-woman transcontinental squad has riders from five different countries, including New Zealand, Mexico, Canada, Colombia, and the United States. While the DNA team makes their way through the 2022 season, Speed Hound will be at every finish line, helping these athletes recuperate with on-demand, dynamic air compression via the Pro Performance Recovery System.
Catherine Fegan-Kim, co-owner of DNA Pro Cycling, is looking forward to partnering with Speed Hound:
“Our riders love the addition of Speed Hound boots to our team’s travel gear! We have a lot of multi-day events (such as UCI stage races) where we use the boots at the end of each day to increase blood flow and reduce muscle soreness. We also have a lot of one-day events where we fly in, race, and then fly out the next day – the Speed Hounds boots are essential to speed recovery and help keep the legs loose on travel days.”
There’s no question that the women of DNA Pro Cycling are familiar with the daily grind that comes with professional cycling, so maximizing recovery efforts is an absolute must. Using compression boots to encourage blood flow and increase circulation helps reduce muscle and joint soreness while preventing future injury.
Speed Hound is focused on making top-tier, state-of-the-art recovery systems accessible to all athletes, whether they’re on the road or at home. Riders with DNA Pro Cycling travel worldwide, racing in Harlem, NY and Ardeche, France… and just about everywhere in between. The size and durability of Speed Hound’s recovery system make it an ideal travel companion for the DNA Pro Cycling team as they navigate the globe.
The Speed Hound recovery system comes in various sizes for a more customized fit, making it the ideal choice for an entire team. Because the ProPerformance Recovery System offers more adjustable settings than other models, each rider will be able to experience the full benefits from the recovery system tailored to her individual recovery needs. From increased circulation to a boost in muscle restoration, DNA Pro Cycling athletes will have access to the full system, including compression boots, as well as hip and arm attachments.
According to Sam Chi, founder and CEO of Speed Hound Endurance, the partnership with DNA Pro Cycling is a perfect fit:
“Our partnership with DNA Pro Cycling is a match made in heaven. Our recovery products are designed to meet the demands of the most extreme use cases, including professional multi-stage cycling races that these women are participating in. I look forward to seeing the team build on a successful season in 2021 with over 20 podium finishes.”
