Road ID Wrist ID Slim

Give the gift of peace of mind with this lightweight identification bracelet, which comes in a variety of colors and triathlon-inspired badge options (for an extra five bucks).

Create a sports drink blend that reflects personal flavor preference, specific calorie and electrolyte requirements, training goals and race-day needs via the custom blend tool on Infinit’s website. You can also ask questions of a nutritionist through the site’s Live Chat feature.

NikeiD Run Shoes

You can custom build a variety of Nike wares online, including the sock-like Nike Free Flyknit run shoe.

Oakley Radarlock

The build-your-own-sunnies feature on the Oakley website lets you select from a range of colors for the various frame components in addition to lens color, type and shape. Any triathlete will appreciate the one-of-a-kind quality of this essential, everyday piece of gear.
