The 2014 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide magazine is out on newsstands now (and check out the digital version), and we’re giving you a sneak peek right here. Check out the wheels from the guide here and check back to Triathlete.com for more Buyer’s Guide content.

Campagnolo Bullet 80

$2,400, Campagnolo.com
The draw: Iconic brand association

Choosing Campagnolo parts for your bike is more than an equipment decision—it serves as a membership card into a club of cycling devotees.

Riding these wheels is a loud statement of devotion to decades of cycling history.
