    I was talking with Kevin Horgan & he thought I should drop you a line. Bellow is a little about us & thing we can do.

    Kole’Gear Pressurized Hydration is a hydration company born from athletes desire to have fuss free hydration during peak performance times. We would like to partner with your race and help the event directors to enhance Na Pali race event and get our product in the hands of athletes that could benefit from its use.

    We propose: Contact us so we can post your race on our website. Call us or email your address where we can send 6 packs for your event to use as prizes, raffle or silent auction items and tell us how many entrants you anticipate at your event.
    In exchange: We will also include our brochure and a discount coupon to be included in race packets for. Then tell us how the event went, how the local favorites finished and what’s next in your part of the world!

    You might be wondering about Kole’Gear. How’s it Work? The fluid of your choice is forced into a food grade latex bladder under pressure of the pump. The natural elasticity of the latex provides an even, steady flow of fluid on demand in the lightest, most compact, effective manner on the market. Once the system is charged, pressure will remain steady until the last couple of sips. With a variety of components, you can customize the system to suit your needs. There’s no reason to suck anymore! We should know, we’ve been using this product extensively in the Hawaiian Islands for a couple of years now – paddling between islands, catching bumps – and spreading the word through out Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Brazil. We’re athletes know that word of mouth spreads a new product around better than anything else. Check out our website or give us a call.
