Voler was founded in 1986 in San Luis Obispo, California. What began as a small operation producing windsurfing bags and cycling helmet covers quickly morphed into creating top-notch custom cycling apparel for teams, events, and other cycling brands. By 1996 Voler moved to Grover Beach (15 minutes south of SLO) and ramped up production in a much larger facility. We added on to the facility in 1999 and started the Voler online Store (previously Velowear) selling our non-customized branded apparel direct to consumer.

Fluid began as a senior project between a nutritional biochemist and an exercise physiologist at Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, California. Founders Richard Smith and David Brown saw a need for post-exercise recovery nutrition that wasn’t being met. They scoured shelves at specialty running and cycling stores. They read ingredient lists, nutrition facts and marketing statements. Nothing they saw matched what was being said in the latest scientific research. The nutritional products available were not matching up with the latest body of knowledge about how humans use nutritional elements during and after exercise.

So they set out to create their own solution. After months of research and development in the kitchen of a rented home next to the Cal Poly campus, they developed a product that would revolutionize how athletes train, recover and improve. Fluid Recovery was born to help people young and old get the nutrients their body need, immediately after exercise, to aid in muscle recovery and allow them to go out the next day and do it again.

But being at the forefront of an entire new product category wasn’t easy. They worked hard. The company grew steadily and organically, expanding its reach from San Luis Obispo to Southern and Northern California, and eventually across the country. Now Fluid is sold online, in specialty stores throughout the United States, and is exported to Costa Rica and Canada.

Our mission, vision, and values provide the foundation for our fundamental business practices, and the framework to build strong relationships with our employees, customers, suppliers, and the community. No matter how large Fluid grows, its founding principles remain the same.
