For the bike and run stages of your race, explore the selection of high performance road bikes, bike trainer stands, running shoes, hydration packs, and other accessories.
Triathlon training is an intense commitment, often requiring hours of work each week. Your triathlon training needs depend in part on your level of experience in the sport.
If you are preparing for your first event, it’s a good idea to focus on the basics, like high quality running shoes, a fast, lightweight bike, and a comfortable tri suit or shorts. When you’re ready to start focusing on the finer points, accessories such as swim paddles, pull floats, and bike training stands can help you get the most out of each workout.
If you’ll be riding on muddy trails, look for a shoe with strap closures rather than laces, as they are easier to keep clean. Easy on and off strapped shoes are also a good choice for triathlon training and competition.
If you are considering a pair of cycling shoes that attach to bike pedals, make sure the shoes and pedals are cleat compatible.
