Sav­ing pen­nies doesn’t mean you’ll lose out when cy­cling. Here are five ways to stay smart on the roads

220 Triathlon Magazine - - CONTENTS -

1TheOx­ford Data Max comes in wired (£19.99) and wire­less (£24.99) ver­sions, and of­fers eight func­tions for its measly out­lay. Th­ese in­clude the ba­sics of record mode, speed, av­er­age speed and dis­tance. Bat­tery life is said to be a year.

2De­spite its sub-£30 price tag, the ro­bust B’Twin RoadR

500 (£29.99) from De­cathlon has mod­ern racy looks, easy-to-ad­just straps and 17 vents to keep you cool on the roads.

3The Dhb Trin­ity

Triathlon shoes (£ 45) of­fer de­cent power trans­fer, a light weight and tri-race day ap­peal, from the out­sole bumpers for walk­ing in to a re­verse strap and heel loop. Postswim drainage is also ef­fi­cient due to the chan­nels on the out­sole. 4Cur­rently avail­able for £12, the Road Cy­cling Per­for­mance Man­ual from long-term 220 Triathlon con­trib­u­tor Nikalas Cook breaks down the most up-to­date train­ing ap­proaches to two-wheeled gains, in­clud­ing bike set-up, equip­ment se­lec­tion and nu­tri­tion.

5Whether you want them as a kit bag spare or your go-to pair, the Lomo Elite eyewear (£10) are quite sim­ply a bril­liant buy. They boast a light weight, pro­vide un­ob­structed vi­sion when down on the tri-bars, pro­duce min­i­mal fog­ging in hot con­di­tions, and of­fer three dif­fer­ent lenses for var­i­ous light con­di­tions. We think they look al­right, too.
