I'm new to triathlons and I'm slowly getting new kit, I'm curious to know what you seasoned triathletes prefer helmet wise....... the casco speedster/giro air attack shield type or the lazer wasp/pointy tail type
Giro Air style for me although I use an Specialized Evade myself
The pointy one do have their place in racing but they are not likely to make much difference to someone who is just starting out in triathlon.
I use an Evade as well.
If you are new to riding a TT bike then I really wouldn't bother with a long tail. If you can't hold it in the optimum position/you head bob etc then it'll cost you more than you benefit.
Having been doing tri's for 3 years I am only now contemplating a long tail lid.
As a general point there are definitely better ways to spend a couple hundred ££ than on a long-tail lid - a well fitting tri suit or clip on aerobars for example will both save more time and cost less. There are various pieces on the internet setting out "cost per second saved" which are well worth reading
Thanks for the replys, what other things are/aren't worth upgrading or getting? especially when it comes to the bike
Food for thought, there's probably a more recent one
otherwise if you have aero bars can I recommend a bta hydration system... More aero than the down tube and easier to drink from in he aero tuck so easier to hold aero.
