It may sound as simple as swim, bike, run – but you’ll soon realise the need for specific equipment to achieve your training and racing goals. You can grab most of your triathlon equipment needs directly through Tri-Alliance TriShop for the best prices on quality products from our partners.
Equipment To Get You Started
To get started in triathlon, you can actually get away with minimal triathlon equipment. If you have bathers, goggles, a bike, helmet and runners, then you can get started straight away. So don’t let specific equipment stand in your way – grab your gear and get along to a training session.
