TYR Torque Preview



A few weeks ago we got a sneak preview of TYR's new WTC Ironman legal swim skins (aka speed suits) called the Torque Pro and Torque Elite. TYR was gracious enough to invite us to their Huntington Beach headquarters in Southern California on the weekend. I've had to hold off sharing the news until today so I'm very excited to share.

These two new swim skins were very cool to see given the recent news that WTC has banned the existing tri swim skins that had the neoprene coatings. If you are familiar with the TYR Sayonora swim skin then you know what I am talking about when I refer to this product. What makes these two new suits so remarkable is that they lower the drag coefficient of swimming using a fabric than using a neoprene coating. A limited quantity is being produced as quickly as possible in time for Kona this year. Get on the waiting list now as they likely won't last long since there are no other options at this time. I won't go into too many details here. If you want to see more just click on the images to be taken to webpages that tell more about the suits.

You can also click one of these links to find out more.
TYR Torque Pro - This speed suit is most similar to the Sayonara in terms of feel but the fabric is quite different and very impressive.
TYT Torque Elite - This suit is so light and amazingly slick in the water. We did a video tracking the water over the "seams" and it is so smooth. There really are no raised seems on this thing. It's pretty amazing.

Even the boxes that the suits come in are cool.

Bento Box for Triathlon and Bike


The Bento Box for Triathlon and the Bike is basically a nutrition/storage bag that typically connects to the top tube and top portion of your fork under the stem of your bike. Nowadays Bento Boxes are commonly referred to as Stem Bags. It is commonly used by triathletes and bikers riding long distances. Some may not know but there are a variety of options and I've listed some below.

(CLICK EACH IMAGE below to find more information and pricing)

Profile Design E-Pack, Large - This is a standard sized box with a mesh top. Click the image below for a video of the product.


Louis Garneau Gel Box 2 Stem Bag


Serfas Large Stem Bag - This is an extra long bag for those who may want to carry a subway sandwich ;)


TNi Bento Box TRZ bike bag - This design is unique in that it is slanted and not shaped like a box.



(No longer available) Standard Sized Bento Box comes in 3 colors. The Bento Box company went out of business.
