In 1981, Quintana Roo founder Dan Empfield competed in one of the first Ironman events on Hawaii’s Big Island. As a pioneer of the sport, he envisioned a bright future for it, but felt something was lacking: High-quality equipment that accommodated the serious needs of triathletes. He decided to provide the solution by starting a company named after one of his favorite places on the planet, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
Quintana Roo invented both the triathlon-specific bicycle and wetsuit. The same creative juices that created the innovative fit and features that first made triathletes go faster are flowing again today. For 2015 they have received "The Editor's Pick" award for Lava Magazine's Gear of the Year with the PRsix. A well-rounded and dynamic SuperBike beyond the wind tunnel, a street smart approach based on plenty of book knowledge and real-world triathlon experience. Quintana Roo is proud to introduce the QR PRsix, a lightweight, elite-aero build loaded with common-sense component flexibility. The PRsix also features QR's Leading Edge Absent (LEA) and SHIFT+ technologies.
