In it For the Long Run
With more and more athletes competing into their late ’70s and ’80s, older athletes are taking up the sport and busting boundaries, myths about aging and a whole lot of records. Theresa Wallace profiles this emerging trend and celebrates those for whom age is just a number.
While cyclists have long appreciated Nalini’s Italian design in swanky apparel, the company’s Triton Triathlon Shoe makes a great contribution to the triathlon market. The Triton is both light and supportive making it one of the top performers. With a full carbon fibre sole and seamless microfibre upper, the shoe packs a lot of punch in very few grams. The Triton has a customizable arch support thanks to the E-sole footbed and numerous perforations keep feet dry and cool. In fact the E-soles exchange air inside the shoes. Micro breathing holes in the plantar arch, move warm air through replacing it with fresh air. The Triton is compatible with both three-hole Look and two-hole spd mounts. A large reversed Velcro strap-up and ample heel loop make T1 and T2 a breeze. The minimalist aesthetic with red and white accents are suggestive of their Italian origin and allow them to work well with almost any kit.
