The relentless quest for speed

As an athlete, you’re always looking for marginal gains, ways to boost your power and improve your speed. It’s this same drive that inspires HUUB’s Albacore project.

Our project takes its name from the ground-breaking work of US researchers in the 1950s, who aimed to create the most hydrodynamic and agile submarine in the world – The Albacore. Their work was the ultimate fusion of science, research and reality. Inspired by their journey of continual improvement, our mission is to develop the fastest products in and out of the water.

Led by Professor Huub Toussaint, our research and design team work relentlessly to fulfil this mission. We’ve invested heavily in the MAD System, our state-of-the-art, proprietary technology that enables us to obsess over the minutiae of performance and refine the Albacore range, millisecond by millisecond.

Today, Albacore products are perfection personified. But for us, there is no end; there will always be new materials, new technologies and new ways to pursue our quest to make the optimum equipment for athletes serious about speed.
