Triathlon is the modality that is currently booming in the world of high resistance sports, which has increased the demands of the riders from the bicycles, components and accessories of this modality. The development and the aerodynamics are the main points to bear in mind when choosing the bike and material for triathlons. Therefore you can choose a handlebar that allows you to couple to the bike and achieve an aerodynamic position. These are the so called goat horn. But none of it will be of much use if we don't use a helmet that complements the aerodynamic position and coupling. And to gain rigidity on your trail, look for the high wheel profile that best adapts to your style and that is compatible with the set or drivetrain that you have.
Weight is also an important factor for competition. Therefore you must choose a light frame with resistant components and accessories, together with a suitable development that allows you to get the best race performance. One of these essential accessories is the saddle due to the specific posture that applies for this discipline.
For competition, your bike must be perfectly checked over in order to avoid any mechanical problems. Don't forget to apply the correct maintenance, so go over the bike after each training or road session, correctly lubricating the drivetrain and storing it safely when not in use.
You won't be able to move the bike if you can't move yourself: Don't just look after your bike, but look after your energy too. The huge physical expenditure involved in triathlon means you have to hydrate and recover energy during the hard transitions, as well as after the race. So, take advantage of the bike and foot race to recover energies with energy drinks from your water bottles, bars and energy gels .
Finally, you must rest and have an adequate recovery. In this case the best thing is to have specific nourishment for after the exercise and electrostimulators for recovering legs and muscles.
