In it For the Long Run

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - CONTENTS -

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.
