Back in 1985 there was a meeting of the minds between swimwear maker Joseph DiLorenzo and Olympic medalist and Olympic swim team captain Steve Furniss. The name TYR comes from the Norse god of courage, law, and war.
TYR specializes in swimwear for competition but also offers triathlon apparel, Hurricane wetsuits, and an assortment of aquatic fitness equipment. TYR’s line of equipment caters to everyone from the beginner to the professional athlete. TYR uses sophisticated chlorine resistant fabrics that ensure a high level of performance for hundreds of hours in the pool.
TYR swimwear has been worn by some of the best athletes in the sport such as Ashley Twichell, Molly Hannis, Ryan Lochte, and Cody Miller.
