Today on Malakye: GREAT JOBS! | Atwater Trivia | Spin S.K.A.T.E.S. on B2B

Atwater joins Malakye Trivia and is giving away a pair of trunks every week of July.  Click here to take a shot at this month's question!
Jetpilot Trivia Winner Announced!
Jetpilot dials in Scott Rittenhouse from Fountain Valley, Calif., with a new long-sleeve vest, trunks, sandals, tees, hats, towels and more for correctly answering July's Malakye Trivia.

Jetpilot's Question: "Technology Changes Everything" is the tag line supporting Jet Pilot's new Crown Jewel Rideshorts. What new technology are they referring to?
Answer: Neoprene liner.
Jetpilot's neoprene-lined Crown Jewel trunks and long-sleeve vest will keep Scott toasty for those chilly summer mornings.  Congrats!
