Our Story

Greenlayer was founded on the idea that when it comes to athletic apparel, quality and performance are key. Since our founding in 2007, we’ve worked to make gear that performs at the highest level, so you can focus on crushing your next PR—not a nagging seam. Our gear is made by athletes, for athletes—we know what matters most in the last mile. Our founders Kim Bilancio and Arash Kia both have extensive athletic backgrounds in triathlons—Kim was a nationally ranked swimmer at the University of Connecticut and Arash was a competitive triathlete with over 200 races, including 14 Ironmans to his name. From the beginning, we’ve harnessed our athletic experience as triathletes, our business acumen as product developers, and our commitment to environmentally conscious apparel options to create the ultimate experience for athletes and race directors alike.
