We interviewed president Jake Sullivan, who pitched the winter accessories with Bally’s Total Fitness founder Don Wildman, the oldest Ironman triathlete.
He told us he purchased the business, rebranded and took over the patent in the winter of 2013. After making a few tweaks to the design, they had their first prototype. Once in the Tank, his nerves did not get the best of him. “We were confident in our product and knew the Sharks would love it too. The gloves speak for themselves,” Sullivan said.

The business is based in Utah, which Sullivan said is a prime location to run a cold-weather company. “We are right in the heart of the snow sports culture. We have the greatest snow on earth, with a insane community surrounding it.”
