$150 Triath­letes can’t get enough of the Kin­vara, which pro­vides an im­pres­sive amount of cush­ion­ing and sup­port in a light­weight shoe that’s easy to go fast in. New to this latest it­er­a­tion is a ful­l­length Everun top­sole, which pro­vides more cush­ion­ing and en­ergy re­turn. The in­ter­nal strap sys­tem en­sures a snug, com­fort­able fit, while the flex­i­ble out­sole en­sures the Kin­vara 8 re­mains easy to flex for fast turnover.

While the Speed Run Jacket does a great job of keep­ing out the wind and wa­ter, you won’t feel like you’re wear­ing a jacket thanks to the light weight and stretchy ma­te­rial that pro­vides lots of free move­ment. The back has some added cov­er­age that...
