ROKA Sports, Inc. is pleased to announce a multi-year partnership with 5x Ironman Champion, 4x Ironman 70.3 Champion and Ironman American Record Holder, Linsey Corbin.

Linsey said, "The basis of my sponsorship philosophy is to only work with brands I truly believe in and whose product I would purchase on my own. I'm really excited to add ROKA to this line-up.  I have been fascinated by their product innovation and growth since they entered the triathlon market and am super excited about the opportunity to work with them this year. I have been working hard on my swim this off-season, and I am excited for a fast & fun year with the ROKA team. Partnering with a company like ROKA motivates me as an athlete to continuously improve."

ROKA’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing Ryan Dolan said, “We are thrilled to partner with Linsey Corbin.  She is the fastest American woman ever at the full Ironman distance and is universally respected for her professionalism off the course. Linsey is also one of the most approachable and recognizable figures in the sport of triathlon. We are honored to partner with her and we believe she’ll be an excellent ambassador for ROKA.”

ABOUT ROKA SPORTS

ROKA was founded in 2011 by two former All-American swimmers from Stanford University, who, after being frustrated by the offering on the market, set out to make the fastest wetsuits on the planet.  After two years of intense R&D, and testing by athletes of all abilities, ROKA launched its patent-pending Maverick wetsuit, Viper swimskin and SIM short training lines in 2013.

ROKA products were immediately sought out by elite and developing swimmers alike. Professional athletes in ROKA finished First Out of the Water at back-to-back IRONMAN® World Championships, IRONMAN 70.3® World Championships, and ITU WTS Grand Finals, as well as many other races around the world.  In 2014, ROKA athletes Javier Gómez and Gwen Jorgensen won three World Championship titles.  ROKA is also the Official Swim Sponsor for all US IRONMAN® races as well as the IRONMAN® World Championship.

ROKA is based in Dallas, Texas with employees in Boulder, Colorado and Southern California.
