TRIATHLON BIKE COMPONENTS AND EQUIPMENT
The cross-discipline athletes intrepid enough to take on the challenge of triathlons know that victory over the competition often comes down to small decisions and advantages. As the fastest, and most equipment-focused leg of any race, the cycling segment demands that riders be at the top of their game—and equipped with a ride that's ready to outpace the competition, from transfer to transfer. Shop the fizik collection of triathlon shoes, saddles and bar tape and hit the road spinning.
The low, aerodynamic riding position adopted by most triathletes requires the right saddle for riders to achieve pedalling efficiency without unnecessary pain and discomfort. For them, the noseless design of the fizik tri saddle collection provides the perfect pedalling platform. With thoughtful design details, such as a deep centre channel for added pressure relief, elongated saddle rails to help riders find the perfect position and textured surface materials to avoid unwanted slippage whilst pedalling, fizik triathlon saddles pair even weight distribution with lightweight, responsive performance for lightning-fast middle legs.
When it comes to triathlon cycling shoes, the first challenge is putting them on. Seconds lost at transfers translate to time lost at the finish. Fizik tri shoes are designed to provide easy entry, with special features like flat seam collars and rubberized heel loops to save time and minimize the struggle of quick changes with wet feet. Material choice and easy closure systems add sockless-ready comfort and allow for adjustments on the fly while highly stiff, reinforced outsoles ensure that not an ounce of energy is wasted.
And providing the ultimate grip through drips, sweat, even foul weather, fizik bar tape is ideal for cyclists who choose the triathlon discipline—those disciplined enough to swim, spin and run their way to the finish line.
