Gear

Proper gear is essential for good performance… plus you wanna look cool too…

Swimming:

Tri Shorts

Tri Shorts

Tri shorts are great because they can be used for all three events. Plus, you don’t want to be wasting time in the transition area changing everything you’re wearing. They are slightly padded for the bike and not too thick so they are comfortable for the swim and bike. You can shop around online to find the best deal. Check out the triathlete store and then compare prices.

Speedo Hydrospex

Speedo Hydrospex

I am currently using the Speedo Hydrospex goggles. They are only $19.99 and have lasted me since September. Finding a goggle that works for you is extremely important. This doesn’t mean spending a lot of money. Some of the best pairs I’ve had have been under $15. There’s nothing more frustrating than having them leak or fog and they are very important because the swim sets the tone for the entire race.
