QR (Quintana Roo) Cooks!
Dan Empfield competed in the first Ironman in Hawaii in 1981, but was disappointed in the choicez available to triathletes at the time. Improving wetsuit designs became a passion and initiated a creative torrent as his suits appeared more and more on winning athletes. His company, named after his favorite place on the planet, Quintana Roo, Mexico, was born in 1987! Shortly after his wetsuit designs appeared with increasing regularity on regular tri winners, he plunged into building up bikes, culminating in the fantastic carbon frame sets seen here.
