SAN CLEMENTE, October 4, 2016 — GQ-6, an all-natural, performance-based hydration brand, today announced its partnership with Speedfil by Inviscid Design, Inc., a leading hydration system designed to enhance athlete hydration and aerodynamics.

This new partnership, FUEL + SYSTEM, aims to support optimal performance through an integrated hydration strategy for endurance athletes. An increasing number of top level triathletes are using GQ-6 product and Speedfil hydration systems at the highest level in the sport.

The relationship will debut in Kona, HI, from October 3rd - 8th, where Speedfil will be offering GQ-6 products at its booth within the athlete expo at the Kona Bay Hotel (Uncle Billy’s). Staff will be demonstrating how GQ-6 and Speedfil products work together for rapid hydration.

“At GQ-6, we’re passionate about fueling the athlete’s body in the best way possible, with clean, digestible hydration for optimal performance,” said Richard Hiraga, founder and CEO of GQ-6. “We provide the fuel to support the athlete, and Speedfil provides a sleek system to stay hydrated on the bike. Our shared goal to take hydration to the next level makes this a great working relationship into the future.”
“As athletes ourselves, we realize that if you do not drink you cannot drive and performance suffers. We design our products for maximum efficiency to aid speed via aerodynamics and delivery of hydration” said David Dietterle, Co-founder of Speedfil. “We are asked all the time what product(s) we suggest with our systems and without hesitation we recommend GQ-6. We have been using GQ-6 for several seasons, and when the opportunity to partner with their team arose we simply said, absolutely. GQ-6 supplies the fuel and Speedfil supplies the system to deliver it to the athletes.”
