| Primal Wearis an amazing, socially responsible business. And they have been with TeamWILD from the beginning. Primal is responsible for designing and manufacturing our custom TeamWILD kit, including cycling jerseys and shorts, tri tops and shorts, technical run shirts, arm warmers, socks, and jackets. In addition to coming up with a stylish design to incorporate our team colors and logo, Primal worked with us on particular issues that may arise for people with diabetes, including such extras as more pockets on the tri top and a buttonhole through the pocket in both tops to accommodate insulin pump tubing. Brit, our sales rep, Tim, our artist and Dave, the owner of PrimalWear, have all gone above and beyond to help us make sure that our gear is as perfect as possible. We’ve found our Primal clothing to be really comfortable through long hours of training and racing, it’s holding up well over time, and we love how it looks!
Here is the Press Release about Primal and TeamWILD!
We all need a treat now and then, even hard working athletes who live with the challenge of diabetes. One really great, guilt-free treat is an All Natural Zevia Soda.
