About FuelBelt

FuelBelt®, a division of Implus Corporation, was founded in 1997 by seven-time Ironman World Champion participant, Vinu Malik, who designed the first FuelBelt following his rigorous training needs for the Boston Marathon. That single product launched the entire race/hydration belt category, and in the years since, FuelBelt has continued to redefine the running accessories category to meet the needs of millions of elite runners and athletes of all levels. In 2017, the company rolled out a redesigned product line as well as lighting and reflective products that keep athletes safe and visible.
