2015 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Bike Beginner Essentials

Cycling Kit

You’ll quickly learn that your cycling bibs (or shorts) and jersey are among the most important pieces of the tri training wardrobe. The Pearl Izumi Attack Jersey ($70, Pearlizumi.com) and Bib Shorts ($105) make for an affordable combination with the essential features. Look for a form-fitting and breathable jersey with storage options and bibs with a semi-firm chamois to support your weight over longer distances.
