We take gear test­ing se­ri­ously

220 Triathlon Magazine - - From The Editor -

– you need to know that the kit you buy will help you reach your goals in all three dis­ci­plines and work as hard as you on race day. Our test team is made up of ex­pe­ri­enced triath­letes, cy­clists and run­ners who test each prod­uct that ap­pears in 220 to the max dur­ing train­ing and rac­ing, rat­ing it hon­estly for per­for­mance and value.
