Now’s the time to buy new gear for the 2017 triathlon racing season! And the 2017 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide will help you make smart purchasing decisions—it features reviews of 157 different triathlon-related products in more than a dozen categories.
On the cover is the Canyon Speedmax CF SLX 9.0, the same frame that German Jan Frodeno has ridden to victory at the Ironman World Championship the last two years. Germany-based Canyon Bikes will start U.S. distribution late this summer, and readers have the chance to win the Speedmax CF SLX 9.0 (valued at $7,000) through a sweepstakes at Triathlete.com/winthisbike.
Among the categories included in this year’s buyer’s guide are triathlon bikes, run shoes, wetsuits, goggles, power meters and indoor trainers. Throughout the issue are also “Creator Spotlights,” in which you can learn more about the people and stories behind the brands featured in the issue.
We employed a stable of expert reviewers, including the man behind DCRainmaker.com, a bike fitter, Ultraman finishers, former pro triathletes and multiple Ironman athletes. If you want to find a piece of new-for-2017 tri gear expertly reviewed and that will fit your budget, the Buyer’s Guide is your resource.
