About Us

Owner/Creator of the R & R Sports belts is outdoor enthusiast Dr. Diana Helmbrecht.

When participating in triathlons, she (as many others) taped gel packets to her bike bar for easy access. Unfortunately, it was difficult, if not impossible, to remove all of the tape adhesive from the bike afterwards. This problem led to the idea of the Rip and Ride, and then she simply extended the same idea of easy access to gel packets for the Rip and Run waist belt.

"As a health professional and outdoor enthusiast I know the importance of refueling during endurance rides, runs, hikes, etc. R&R's easy access to my energy gels allows me to enjoy all my outdoor activities more fully, increasing my performance level at all times."   Diana Helmbrecht, inventor/owner
