TYR was founded more than 30 years ago in Huntington Beach, California. Thanks to a clever alliance between co-founders Joseph DiLorenzo, a swimwear designer, and Olympic medalist Steve Furniss, TYR products have come to be known for their thoughtful design, dependable function, and refined fit.
Need a new suit? TYR can help. They've been outfitting swimmers for practice and competition since 1985. Their attention to detail means you'll never regret your investment in one of their racing swimsuits or a pair of TYR jammers. If jammers are too cumbersome, you might prefer a pair of TYR briefs − like all of TYR's swimwear, they're streamlined and chlorine-resistant. TYR's long-lasting Lycra® blends defy tendencies to thin or sag, with some suits providing 300+ hours of swim time.
For help with stroke refinement, look no further than the experts at TYR. Develop your kick with a pair of TYR's swim fins, known for their consistent performance and long-wearing comfort. If you're swimming competitively, any one of TYR's range of swim caps is a wise choice.
TYR also offers a unique selection of goggles with models suitable for children, adults, and competitive athletes. Realize your potential in a pair of optical goggles. Or, try out TYR's best-selling Special Ops 2.0 Transition Goggles: the clear lenses darken to shade your eyes in bright light. No matter which model you choose, every TYR goggle comes standard with anti-fog coating and full UVA/UVB protection. Most models are also latex-free.
For Aquatic Exercisers
Whether you're trying to shape up or slim down, TYR has all the water workout gear you need to achieve your fitness goals. Try the versatile TYR Flotation Belt: it's simple, 6-module design is fully adjustable, making it appropriate for nearly any user. TYR's resistance planes are equally simple and compact, each measuring less than 10" across and 1" in thickness. They're the perfect training partner to haul to the pool for an upper body workout.
For Everyone Else
If you're less of a swimmer and more of a surfer or a sunbather, TYR has you covered too. TYR board shorts and swim trunks are stylish enough to wear around town after you hit the beach. And TYR's tankinis and bikinis stay put in the roughest surf while remaining figure-flattering.
Quality You Can Rely On
TYR's dedication to designing and manufacturing cutting-edge swimwear and swim training equipment is evident in those three mysterious letters. T-Y-R, pronounced "teer", shares a name with Týr, the Norse god of glory and heroism. Týr is the head of the Germanic pantheon (just like Zeus or Jupiter) and is best known for his remarkable integrity. (He even lost a hand to honor a promise.) Suffice it to say that TYR holds their suits, goggles, and caps to an impressive quality standard that's unmatched by other heavyweight swim companies. Today, DiLorenzo still heads the company and TYR's designs draw inspiration from their sponsored athletes, such as Ryan Lochte, Dana Vollmer, Matt Grevers, and Kelsi Worrell.
