|Skinsuits and Trisuits|
Time Trial/Tri Bike/Frames - The best way to save time through aerodynamics is to reduce your body's drag. And, there are few better ways to do that than to have a dedicated time trial or triathlon bike. These provide an ultra-aero and biomechanically ideal position and also allow you to train enough in that position to actually be efficient in it. Plus, you'll get a huge psychological boost every time you hop aboard your aero arrow and fly.
Aero Wheels - While these may not save as much time as a helmet, they are absolutely essential for anyone interested in free speed. The deep-dish rims on these wings for your bike cheat the wind, while the fewer spokes create a less speed-reducing vortex, or "dirty" air. Plus, these sweet hoops feature precision hubs with quality bearings for lower rolling resistance, too.
Disc Wheels - Disc wheels have no spokes to create turbulence and are therefore incredibly fast over the majority of courses. We don't recommend a front disc because the crosswinds could wreak havoc with your steering ability, which gets dangerous. Rear discs offer the benefit of being partially shielded by your frame to keep the airflow past your bike as turbulence-free as possible. Discs look and sound great, too.
Skinsuits and Trisuits - Your body is the most significant factor in generating wind turbulence, so it's important that everything you wear minimizes drag. Skinsuits and trisuits are shorts and jerseys in one so they offer a wrinkle-free and snug fit, which prevents the drag that many riders experience wearing regular loose shorts and jerseys. Plus, our skinsuits feature fabrics that help you slip through the air much like how a golf ball's dimples let it fly further. Trisuits offer similar fit, comfort and streamlining features with the added benefit of being cut for excellent function on the swim, bike and run, and also being designed to dry quickly to prevent chafing.
Aero Shoe Covers - When races are decided by fractions of a second, you need every advantage possible. Aero shoe covers add a touch of speed and look stunning as you rocket past competitors at 30+ mph.
Big Chainrings - Most chainrings are built for a wide variety of riding, but you're going only one speed in your next race against the clock: fast! A 54-, 55- or 56-tooth chainring could be just the advantage you need to pick up crucial time in your next race. Please keep in mind that not all bicycles are compatible with all chainring sizes. We're happy to advise.
Picking up just one of these items will help you go faster. Get all of them and we're sure you'll slice off a minute or two in timed races longer than 20 minutes. We look forward to helping you hit a new personal record!
