Empowering Women in the Triathlon Community
Since our launch in 2007, Trigirl's goal has been to empower women in the triathlon community, starting with triathlon kit that works for women. Great fabrics, flattering fits and amazing quality that allows women- you!- to perform confidently and at your best. To further that aim, we provide support for women in the sport through our website, trigirl.co.uk, host events within the triathlon community and run a training chat group on Facebook.
But supporting women in the triathlon community isn't enough. In keeping with our core values, we want to go further to support women and to lessen our impact on the environment by producing sustainable triathlon clothing.
Reducing Our Environmental Impact
Starting with our 2017 collection, Trigirl is excited to be using VITA high-performance fabric, made from ECONYL® nylon yarn, an innovative fibre produced with nylon products that have reached the end of their product life.
VITA fabric comes from our most trusted fabric manufacturer, Carvico, who have supplied high-quality performance fabrics for our trisuits for years. Now, Carvico is working with ECONYL® yarns to create an equally amazing and environmentally-friendly fabric. A win-win that enables us to bring you truly sustainable triathlon clothing!!
“Eco-friendly”, "sustainable" and “recycled” are big buzzwords these days, but prior to introducing ECONYL® into our line, we did our research. We wanted to ensure that our sustainable triathlon clothing would truly have a reduced impact on the environment, and, very importantly, still maintain the high-performance qualities our customers have grown to expect.

Trigirl is proudly supporting Women's Aid, a grass-roots federation working together to provide life-saving services and build a future where domestic violence is not tolerated.
Women's Aid advocates Change that Lasts, a new strengths-based, needs-led approach that supports domestic abuse survivors and their children, to build resilience, and lead to independence.
