In 2003, pro triathletes Helene Salomon and Craig Watson hung up their wetsuits, their TT bikes, and their race flats to found Kiwami. Craig the “Kiwi” and Hélène the "amie" (“friend” in French) know what’s required to make trisuits that perform: Craig was 3rd at the 2001 ITU World Champs, is a former ITU N°1 ranked athlete, and represented New Zealand in triathlon at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games; Hélène is a multiple French champ and was the first Frenchwoman to win an official IRONMAN® event. Both are still active athletes and are always the first people to test Kiwami’s newest products.
Kiwami’s first product, the emblematic Amphibian trisuit, is still used by numerous pros and national teams, and has been a constant in the past 3 Olympic triathlon events. Today, the Kiwami brand continues to grow through the constant conception of innovating products and renowned customer service. Kiwami offers a complete collection of triathlon race wear, made by triathletes for triathletes. All Kiwami products are designed and refined by Kiwami’s own staff at their headquarters in the southwest of France.
