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.
Rocket Science Sports
From wetsuits, to race suits, to some pretty cool bags, the rocket scientists over at Rocket Science Sports continue to impress us with new product releases. We hope to be reviewing some of these creative and highly scientific products in the near future.
Rolf Prima Ares
What's better than a super light carbon clincher wheel? How about a super light carbon clincher wheel with a very low spoke count that is handmade in Eugene, OR. We are currently testing the Ares wheels and have been very pleased. Review coming soon.
Black Diamond Headlamp
Are the short winter days keeping you from being able to get away from the cars or crowded streets to your favorite running trail or dirt road? The folks at Black Diamond have a light for about about any situation you would need. We reviewed our favorite rechargeable running light here.
Want to have blood values like Lance without the illegal stuff? We kid, we kid. But the altitude system from hypoxico can help you get and edge on the competition be sleeping at a simulated altitude of up to 12,500 ft. We will soon have one of these systems landing at the shop for full review.
TYR Convoy Transition Bag
The Convoy Transition Backpack is a cleverly designed bag that is sure to make the chore of hauling all your crap to the race a whole lot easier. This bag literally has a compartment for everything you'll need to carry and more room than you need to fill. The bag lays out into three divided compartments for swim, bike and run gear making it easy to organize all your "necessities" on race day. If you have a triathlete on your list that is still carrying a 5 gal. bucket into transition, please do us all a favor and buy 'em this bag.
The guys at Huub have a few tricks up their sleeve for next season, in the form of their own line of tri apparel. Building off of the success of their wetsuit line, Huub also added a swimskin late this season. Now they have their sights set on their own line of triathlon clothing. Guess who has pre-production samples at their shop as we speak? Be on the lookout for our First Look of the new gear very soon.
