Triathlon apparel at Bobshop
Swimming, cycling and, last but not least, running – triathlon continues to cast its spell, drawing in more and more athletes every year.
If a marathon is no longer challenge enough, the next goal for many runners and cyclists is a triathlon. The greatest challenge triathlon poses is how to switch from discipline to discipline in a matter of minutes. Due to the steadily increasing interest – and number of triathletes – in triathlon, more and more competitions are held every year. Your first triathlon doesn’t have to be the Olympic, middle or Ironman distance, though. There are plenty of beginner-friendly triathlons, usually consisting of a 750m swim, 20km cycle course and 5km run.
Apart from achieving a good level of fitness, the most important preparation you can make for your triathlon is to be sure you have the right equipment. For the swim, you will need a good pair of goggles, for the cycle course your cycling shoes and helmet must be a great fit. You can use your sports glasses for cycling and running, but for the run you will need the perfect triathlon running shoes. For all three disciplines, you can find a huge selection of triathlon suits, triathlon tops and triathlon shorts. The tops and shorts are available in matching sets at a reduced price, so you can look great and still save money! We also offer a range of compression apparel, helping to reduce the amount of time your muscles need for regeneration.
