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.
Splish is one of the easiest to deal with, most versatile custom swim apparel companies out there. We all know that there is a plethora of custom apparel options to choose from, but Splish tops it off by printing almost anything you want on some of the softest and most durable swim gear we have come across. No banana hammocks please!
Shimano Di2 11 Speed
Now that people have started to embrace the "electronic" shifting change, everyone is eagerly awaiting the Di2 9070 11 Speed release. The new groupo (approx 160g lighter) features the thinner E-Tube wiring that is used on Ultegra Di2. An optional internal battery that is 60% lighter than the external. Another big change is the programmable shifters. We could go on and on. It's packed full of features that put it at the top of the electronic groupo category.
Brooks PURE Project
The Brooks PureProject slogan "Feel More with Less" is very appealing to us here at TriBomb. The highly popular PureProject line has some new offerings available (or soon to be) for the new year. There's something for everyone, with a wide range of shoes for different types of runners, but all are designed with the minimalistic approach. If you are looking for a new running shoe, these are definitely worth putting on your list.
If you are like most normal, day job having athletes, then chances are you from time to time (or always) have to squeeze in a ride early in the morning or late at night. Knog is a super cool company that has almost any light option you could dream of. One of our favorite products to help light up our ride.
Brooks AirBrush Studio
Coming up empty when it comes to a gift idea for the triathlete that has EVERYTHING? We're betting he or she isn't sporting a custom painted, pimped out, cover for their melon like this. Hit up Brooks Airbrush Studio and you'll end up with a truly one of a kind design to stand out from the herd.
Zensah is another one of our favorite compression companies. This year, spice things up a bit with the new Zensah Argyle Compression Socks. If you're gonna be dorked out in a pair of compression socks...might as well go all out.
