Transition times in a triathlon, while short, can really hinder a triathlete’s mindset. The switch from swim to bike and bike to run is really what triathlons are all about.
For my first five triathlons, I used a small backpack, a yoga mat and a canvas bag to carry around my stuff. Maybe I over pack, but the reality is that setting up the transition area is never easy. Seems like nothing has a home.
Well, after meeting Dominique Aris, Founder & Creative Director of Gyst Concept, at the Ventura Triathlon, my stuff has a home. After spending the today packing and practicing transitions with the “Backpack 1-10“, I am blown away by the revolutionary design of this bag.
You literally pack the bag, unfold it, and go. Easy as 1-2-3! Check out my video below for a personal walk through of this triathlon experience changing gear:
