Triathlon Equipment - Which Material Do You Really Need?

We have summarized for you which triathlon equipment you really need:

  • First and foremost, you need a triathlon suit that will support you in your swim, bike, and run. There are a lot of different options here, but it's important that you choose a suit that is comfortable and breathable.

  • For most swims, you should wear a wetsuit, goggles, and a swim cap. This will help you with water temperature, orientation and hydrodynamics.

  • Of course, when cycling you need a triathlon bike or racing bike with a triathlon attachment and a helmet that protects you from injuries. You should take a drinking bottle with you on the go. Cycling shoes are also necessary.
