Clothing for a Duathlon

Hi all
Now I am back in training and signed up for my first Duathlon in April, i am unsure whether a tri-suit or similar is worth buying as at this stage I am highly unlike to take part in a triathlon. i

any thoughts gratefully received



  • What do you wear in training ?

    Cant you Wear that ?
  • I wear a cheap pair of cycling short when on the bike, and when doing blocks I wear a cheap pair of unpadded shorts, and my buttocks do feel a tad sore after getting off the bike. I also find I get a cold back not wearing all-in-one.

    I could wear what I do now but am considering investing in some decent gear, as I am really enjoyying it.

    I'd go for a tri suit if you can. Will save you time in transition. If cold you can put a cycling jacket over the top

    I did my 1st Duathlon in my cycling shorts and cycling top.

    If you can run in your cycling shorts fine, there's your answer.

  • Thanks for all the replies.
    tri suit it is.
    Best start shopping on-line then.

    I've got their shorts and top and socks etc.

    Very much, if not an exact copy of the 2XU stuff that's twice the price.

  • Thanks for the link Pat.

    placed my order so looking forward to testing it out the weekend
