OUR STORY: ARK: Pioneering Excellence in Swimrun

Rooted in a narrative of passion, design, and a love for sports, ARK's story unfolds through the collective vision of its founders. A fusion of diverse skills and experiences from different corners of the business world birthed a synergy that would become the driving force behind ARK.

These visionaries, armed with insights from various sectors, identified a gap in the swimrun market. They envisioned a major player, a brand capable of leveraging their combined expertise to make a substantial impact, not just elevating the swimrun experience but propelling customers to new heights of speed and joy.

The seeds of this vision were planted in 2016, a year filled with discussions, planning, and the formulation of ideas that would shape ARK's trajectory. It wasn't until 2018 that these aspirations materialized with the unveiling of the Ornö wetsuit, a groundbreaking release symbolizing years of dedication, expertise, and a shared dream to revolutionize the world of swimrun.

The Ornö wetsuit wasn't merely a product; it embodied the founders' commitment to innovation, quality, and the belief that the right gear could enhance every stroke and stride. As ARK forges ahead, its legacy echoes a spirit of collaboration, the pursuit of excellence, and an unwavering dedication to making customers faster and happier in the world of swimrun.

Since our inaugural release in 2018, ARK has not only made waves in the swimrun scene but has evolved into a trailblazer in the industry. Our journey has been one of continuous innovation and commitment to excellence. From 2018 to 2022, we've pioneered numerous products, introducing new equipment segments that redefine the swimrun gear landscape.

This period of development wasn't just about keeping pace; it was about setting the pace, pushing boundaries, and catering to the unique requirements of every swimrun enthusiast. What sets ARK apart is our commitment to offering not just a range of products for different skill levels but a collection of top-of-the-line gear tailored to various needs and preferences.

Our product range isn't a spectrum from beginner to high performance; each product is designed as a pinnacle of excellence, catering to specific requirements. This approach ensures that whether you're a seasoned pro or a newcomer to the sport, ARK has the perfect gear for you.

Today, ARK stands as a prominent figure, not only in the swimrun community but also in the broader industry. Our high-performing athletes have chosen ARK as their trusted armor, especially when facing the most challenging and demanding conditions. The ARK name is synonymous with quality, innovation, and a dedication to helping athletes perform at their peak.
