The Latest in Triathlon Transition Gear


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:
