2021 Gear Guide

Our team of testers spent hundreds of hours over the last two months putting all the swim-bike-run gear you see here through its paces—plus some. Not everything that was tested made the cut. Not everything was up to snuff. The final result is your gear guide for the 2021 race season. Here's how we test gear.

Triathlete and Active Pass members will get access to the complete guide plus more in-depth reviews in every category. Become a member now to access the complete guide. Join now!
