Endura entered the triathlon market with a bang in 2016 with the launch of Drag2Zero QDC race suits, developed in conjunction with Simon Smart of Drag2Zero and race proven with some scorchingly fast big splits by top notch cadre of long distance triathletes. The QDC range has evolved over the seasons and now includes our too-fast-for-roadies SST technologies that have claimed an Ironman world record, a clutch of sub-8 and sub-9 hour iron-distance finishes, and a host of titles – only the big dance, the Ironman World Championships in Kona, has eluded our Endura clad triathletes so far.
Could 2020 be the year that a QDC suit helps take the top prize in Hawaii? Our top line triathletes will certainly be hoping to take to the top step come October.
A former elite swimmer, Lucy turned pro in 2016, only two years after first racing an Ironman, and has used her phenomenal prowess in the water to provide the platform for win after win since. She enjoyed a superb 2019 season, claiming Challenge Roth as well as the Ironman African Championships in South Africa. In October, she racked up a third straight runners-up finish in Kona, producing a gritty performance during the marathon that saw her claw her way back to second spot. Look out for Lucy smashing her way through another season and we’ll be hoping to see her claim the biggest title in the Ironman world come autumn.
Part of the elite Team Erdinger Alkoholfrei outfit, Daniela joined the Endura clan in 2019 and was convinced of the benefits of the Endura QDC suit during a wind tunnel test, before racing it to a win at Challenge Heilbronn and hitting the podium at both long and middle distances. Read more about Daniela in this in-depth feature for Renegade Stories English and German.
Tim Don’s record-breaking achievement in notching up the fastest time ever in an Ironman branded long distance event was the unequivocal proof that our QDC clothing is the fastest available to triathletes. His winning time of 7:40:23 at Ironman South America topped an outstanding career with countless wins at all triathlon distance. His inspirational return to race at Kona in 2018, just a year after suffering a horror injury whilst training on Hawaii was truly remarkable and we highly recommend The Man with the Halo, a gripping documentary chronicling his brave return to top level racing. He might be our oldest triathletes, but there is plenty more to come from The Don.
Originally from Berlin, but now based in Frieburg, Nils is two time Ironman champion who recovered from a career threatening injury to win again. We’re looking forward to seeing what he can do in an injury free season.
A relative newcomer to long distance triathlon, Kim turned to multi-sports in 2013 after a successful hockey career. Gaining experience in the Olympic discipline initially, she claimed her first Ironman 70.3 title in Argentina in 2016 and has enjoyed considerable success at that distance in subsequent seasons. A phenomenal talent when riding against the clock, Morrison regularly competes in time trials for Drag2Zero.
