It's that time of year again, time for our version of a Christmas wish list. Some are new products and some are products we've used that have become staff favorites. So whether you are looking for gift ideas for a deserving triathlete, or you are one, these products are all things we would like to see under our tree.
One of the latest wetsuits to come through the shop, the Huub Archimedes, is sure to be on the short list of triathletes everywhere. This suit combines excellent flexibility, various buoyancy combinations, and a rigid exoskeleton designed to help you PR your next swim. See our first look here. If Superman wore a wetsuit we think it would look something like this.
The long awaited P5 has finally arrived...well sort of. Major supply vs demand issues have delayed delivery of this bike for many people. This is the bike we all hoped the P4 was going to be, but nevertheless it seems as if it was worth the wait. The P5 is truly tri-geek drool worthy, sporting great aerodynamics, killer looks, and a new hydraulic brake system. Get a better look here.
Still our 'go to' shoe for race day and up tempo run training. The K-Ruuz is a super lightweight racing flat with just the right amount of cushion for a fast, responsive feel. Couple that with a soft, seam free interior and an upper that is not only breathable but water resistant and we think you've found race flat nirvana. Our detailed review is here.
The best multisport watch we know of, the Garmin 910XT is the multisport watch all others are trying to catch up to. Our experience with this watch has been excellent, quick satellite acquisition, wireless data transfer, and accurate measurements of more data than you can shake a stick at.
Lezyne Travel Drive
Who says travel pumps have to be crappy, ugly, plastic contraptions that would be better off left in the hotel room? The Lezyne CNC Travel Drive pump makes for the perfect travel companion with a compact lay flat design and the included felt lined canvas bag. The pump is a scant 1.85 lbs and there's even an included Speed Chuck for disc wheels.
Louis Garneau Course Apparel
The new LG Course line of apparel, is designed for one thing, speed. The newest elite level apparel features a lightweight, next to skin fit, with minimal seams and maximum comfort. Things like pre-shaped shoulders and Speedtech aerodynamic fabric help you slip through the wind. The bibs have a seamless 5 Motion Chamois for long bouts in the saddle and the coldblack treated fabrics, which reflect heat, will help you keep your cool. Not for the muffin topped cyclist.
