New to triathlon kit? Confused by all the different tri clothing brands?
Buying your first trisuit can be daunting. What is a trisuit? What does a trisuit do for you? Do you really need one if you are just starting out in triathlon?
Why you want a trisuit for your race...
No matter if you are training for your first race, or your second or your 50th... Yes, you do want to wear a trisuit on race day!
Doing a triathlon calls for kit that can comfortably see you through all three disciplines: the swim, the bike and the run.
- You need an outfit that dries quickly after the swim so you don’t get cold.
- You need something that fits like a glove.
- You need slim, comfortable padding for protection on the bike, but a specialised pad that dries quickly.
- You need kit that does not restrict your movement.
- And most importantly for many women, you need a top that offers sufficient bust support for the high impact of running.
We also recommend purchasing your trisuit well in advance of the big day. There is an old adage about triathlons: “nothing new on race day” ever ever ever! You will be nervous enough as it is, so help calm your nerves by feeling confident and comfortable in your kit.
Do yourself a favour and buy your trisuit now! Don’t leave it to the last minute.
