The roots of Felt trace back more than two decades. It all started in the late 1980s when motocross star Johnny O’Mara asked his ace motorcycle mechanic Jim Felt to build him a time trial bike, as he was competing in triathlons to cross train for motocross. Jim, a competitive age-group triathlete himself, had a distinct vision of how he could improve on the designs of the time. It worked. Johnny started winning races, and before long Jim was building bikes for the world’s top triathletes. In 1991 Paula Newby Fraser won the Hawaii Ironman on Felt, and Jim found himself officially in the bike business. Ten years later, it was time to expand. Bill Duehring and Michael Mullmann entered, filling the positions of product development and global ties (Bill) and a successful distribution into Europe (Michael). It was the perfect melding of skills. 2014 promises to be another exceptional year. Don’t expect Felt’s mission to change. Just as it was when Jim Felt started the company years ago, they continue to design, develop, and deliver the best bicycles in the world. Period.

We began serving the athletic community on January 1, 2011 after decades helping to improve the quality of life for over 50,000 patients through pneumatic compression pump therapy. The results this therapy has produced for those suffering from arterial and venous disease, lymphedema and other circulatory problems like diabetes have been tremendous. Further research revealed this same technology could prove equally beneficial to athletes. Scientific evidence abounds in support of the use of sequential compression to expedite recovery, but our team became excited by the prospect of sharing these benefits firsthand with the athletic community. What we believed from the start has proven to be true – once you try RecoveryPump and experience the benefits it provides, you’ll join the “Recovery Revolution” and start pumping with us.

Jarrod Shoemaker and Alicia Kaye are married, professional triathletes who transplanted themselves into the sunny state of Florida in 2010. They were in search of a sunscreen that worked as hard as they do and could endure their hardest workouts. Together, they developed a sunscreen with great ingredients that was waterproof, sweatproof, moisturizing, safe for sensitive skin, non-comedogenic, and that protected against UVA & UVB. They were amazed by the sunscreen and quickly began expanding Endurance Shield’s other products (lip protectant, chamois creme, and muscle relief & repair).
