Our Story

In 2014, after a few years of accumulating countless kilometers swimming, cycling and running, we registered for our first IRONMAN together. The experience of a triathlon doesn’t begin at the start line, but rather at the first training. Each day, we woke up with an objective in mind, and in our hearts.

We spent many of those hours training together. But also dreaming about more comfortable, flattering and fashion-forward triathlon apparel. We asked ourselves why we couldn’t find anything that fit right, was technical and featured bold prints.

Considering the long hours we spend in athletic apparel, comfort and style are essential. We were tired of accepting compromises.

BRAVA was born during these training sessions. What was once a dream is now a reality. Is it the finish line? Not at all. It’s our start line and it’s with you we wish to share this journey. We are two passionate triathletes; BRAVA is our community.
