Elite AiR/TT 9.4S Complete Bike - 2014 White, M

Chris Boardman earned the nickname "Mr Prologue" in response to his prowess at the first stage of the Tour, which is a race against the clock. He has broken records at every distance, from the 4km Individual Pursuit to the hour record, over which he covered a distance in excess of 56 kilometers. He has proven his prowess with with the AiR frame, a bike so fast it helped propel Pete Jacobs to a victory in Kona. Boardman was able to experiment with many different combinations of fiber types, fiber directions, resins, and tube shapes to ultimately come up with a TT frame design. He did this with the help of the latest Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and wind tunnel tests. Every tube on the AiR TT was meticulously examined and tested to be efficient, lightweight, and aerodynamic. Boardman carefully designed the AiR TT's tubes with shapes that not only efficiently handle head-on winds, but also those less-than-ideal crosswinds encountered in racing situations. These wind-tunnel-tested tubes wear a fairly slender width profile throughout, which creates the optimal balance between vertical compliance and aerodynamics. The top tube remains fairly round, while the down tube, seat tube, and integrated (and reversible) seatpost have been shaped to maximize airflow and reduce wind resistance.The material selected for the AiR TT's frame is an ultralight, high-modulus, unidirectional carbon fiber that's been constructed in a full monocoque design. Similarly, the fork was built out of the same predictable, race-tested, and ultralight carbon fiber. The AiR's mold also incorporates a one-piece PF30 bottom bracket and oversized box section chainstays, which, with a steep taper design at the dropouts, maximize power transfer and strength at the rear junction. Along these lines, the full carbon fork was built with a 1-1/2 to 1-1/8in tapered steerer tube for increased stiffness and steering precision.The AiR Elite TT's fork was also designed to be exceptionally stable, com...

T1:Stealth Jersey - Short-Sleeve - Men's White, 3XL - Men's

Castelli's T1:Stealth Jersey is designed to fly under the wind's radar. Everything about its design -- from the low, abbreviated collar to the extended sleeves, side-entry pockets, and second-skin fit -- is designed to save time when you're on the bike. Castelli claims that this jersey alone will save you up to three minutes on the bike leg. This is even more impressive when you realize that these three minutes come in comparison to Castelli's two-time Kona champion Free Tri Suit. Castelli's brand slogan is "an unfair advantage" -- the T1:Stealth may embody this better than any other item the Italian manufacturer produces. The jersey's body is made from Velocity fabric on the front and Velocity Mesh on the shoulders and back. Velocity uses Prosecco treatment that pulls moisture from the skin and diffuses it across the fabric's surface to lower the concentration of wetness and speed up evaporation, a welcome addition in T1. The Mesh iteration strives for maximum breathability to keep you cool during the final two legs of your event. Both materials are also comically stretchy, so it takes some doing to get into the T1:Stealth but, once you're there, the material lies flat against your skin, cheating the wind for the above mentioned gains between transitions. The jersey's aerodynamic fit is guaranteed by an elastic insert at the waist, which keeps the silicone gripper tightly pressed against your body for an unflinching hold. The lightweight construction also comes with an unlooked-for -- but very welcome -- UPF of 16. If you've ever had the misfortune of burning your bib straps into your back courtesy of a too-thin jersey, then you'll understand the appeal of this feature.

SES 8.9 Carbon Road Wheelset - Tubular One Color, Campagnolo Chris King R45

Whether you're in the peloton or at Kona, speed matters. But, the question begs to be raised, how do we define speed? Some assert that aerodynamics are the end-all-be-all of speed, while others point to light weights and rigidity. However, regardless of what your definition is, we can all agree that it's increasingly uncommon to find one set of wheels that embodies all of our definitions. But, note that we said 'uncommon' and not 'impossible.' This is because American innovators like ENVE produce exceptional products like the 8. 9 Carbon Tubular Road Wheelset. Boasting the industry's highest stiffness-to-weight ratio, unparalleled durability, and aerodynamics that are literally ahead of the curve, the 8. 9 is undoubtedly a revolution in speed. As part of the ENVE Smart System, SES series, the 8. 9 carbon tubular uses ENVE's most sophisticated technology and engineering techniques to ensure a fast, stiff, and aerodynamic wheelset. The 8. 9's aerodynamic design starts with the size differential of the wheels. ENVE accounted for the different behaviors of front and rear wheels, and designed the 8. 9s with a front wheel that's 85mm deep and 26mm wide, while the rear wheel is 95mm deep and 24mm wide. The front wheel's shallower profile and wide stance helps decrease drag in windy conditions. The rear wheel's depth also decreases drag, because stability is less affected at the aft position of the bike. According to ENVE, the 8. 9s create a low drag number rivaling many competitors' 80+ mm depth wheels. In fact, when comparing the necessary power required to hold 40kph at yaw angles ranging from 0 to 16 degrees, the 8. 9 requires around three to four watts less than the Zipp 808 Firecrest, it's leaps and bounds ahead of the 404 Firecrest, and it's basically miles ahead of every offering from HED and Bontrager. However, for the sake of full disclosure, the data does show the Firecrest 808 at a slight advantage between 13 and 15 degree yaw angles. Outside of consistent ...

Tardiz Helmet Red/White, M

It should come as no revelation that over the course of a triathlon, your body will be tested. Simply put, you need every advantage that you can get, and when you've exhausted the channels of apparel and lightweight bicycle components, it's time that you take a look at your aerodynamic position. An aero piece like the Lazer Tardiz Helmet can literally shave your time off of the clock. Don't believe us? Ask Julie Dibens if the Tardiz played a role in her shattering of the bicycle course record at Kona? We think that you already know the answer. Let's get down to brass tacks -- you're wearing an aero helmet for aerodynamics. So, you're probably wondering, 'what is the Tardiz helmet going to do for me?' Luckily, that's an easy question to answer. Lazer designed the Tardiz around what it calls Dual Layer Aerodynamics. Looking at the profile of the Tardiz, you'll notice that the construction takes on two different textures -- smooth and glossy at the front, top, and sides, and dimpled at the rear tail. Two textures are used in order to treat the air differently, depending on where the flow comes into contact with the surface of the helmet. So, the smooth texture moves the flow back to the dimpled tail. The dimples, like that of a golf ball, creates a slight turbulence directly above the surface called an artificial boundary layer. This layer forces the laminar boundary layer to become turbulent, which enables airflow to remain attached over more of the helmet for a longer period of time, thus providing a lower level of integrated drag. The drag that dimples creates is also called skin friction drag, and although it becomes increased, pressure drag (which is ten times higher than skin friction) is thoroughly decreased. For retention and security, the Tardiz features Lazer's Rollsys retention system. The patented Rollsys is a fully integrated mechanism that completely surrounds the head. To dial in the fit, you simply turn the smooth thumb wheel, located at the top of...
