MTI - Sponsor Highlight

classic surf image with inflated PFDs Safety is key to the success of any on-water race event, and MTI is proud to be a sponsor of the 2014 Race the Lake of the Sky. Founded over 20 years ago, MTI stands for Marine Technologies International. From the beginning, we have focused on building life jackets for paddlesports. Our design inspiration comes out of what we ourselves experience as paddlers. When our family fell in love with Standup Paddling over 7 years ago, we set out to transform the boring inflatable belt pack PFD into something COOL that we ourselves would want to wear. MTI was the first PFD company to recognize the needs of the Standup Paddler. Now MTI has raised the performance bar with the new FLUID 2.0 featured in the race registration form. The FLUID 2.0 adds comfort and performance, raising the performance bar. We believe it’s the best inflatable belt pack you can buy. FLUID 2.0_BLACK W PACKG_ xlarge

If we can keep pushing our life jacket designs to a higher level, more people will choose to wear their PFD not because the law says you should, but because it’s the smart thing to do. With an MTI jacket, we make it easy to just WEAR IT. That really is what MTI stands for: Life Jackets for people who love to paddle.
