Triathlon Equipment, made for your performance

As you know, Triathlon combines three sports, which is why you may initially fear that you will have to buy extensive equipment with countless individual parts before you even cover your first meter. But don't worry, you can reduce your Triathlon equipment to the bare minimum at the beginning, as long as you focus on the essentials.

In addition to the self-evident bike, in the best case a road bike, you need padded cycling shorts and a functional shirt; whether short or long is up to you in both cases. In addition, you need a helmet for your safety at high speed.

For running, you need a second pair of shorts, this time a pair of running shorts that, unlike the cycling shorts, do not have a seat pad and ideally have compressive properties. Good running shoes are essential and functional socks are very practical to complement your outfit -- on the track as well as on the bike.

For your training portion in the water, a swimsuit or swim trunks will suffice for non-professionals, supplemented by goggles and a swim cap.

As your training becomes more intense and your competitive intentions more serious, we recommend a triathlon suit. It is worth investing in a garment that you will wear in all three disciplines. This way, you don't have to worry about a speed or wetsuit and you can continue to wear your tri suit on the bike and run. It also makes sense to add cycling gloves to your kit for a better grip on the handlebars and protection for your hands. You can complement your running and cycling clothes with a light jacket, a hat or cap as well as arm warmers and functional sunglasses you are equipped for any weather. Last but not least, a good form belt and a lightweight water bottle can also make your training easier.
