Cycling forms the middle stretch and longest part, of a triathlon, which can be anything from 10km in super sprint triathlon to 180km in an Ironman event. So it is important that you have the right kit to give you every advantage possible in this key discipline.
In addition to picking the right bike, you also need to make sure you get the best TT helmet possible and Eureka Cycle Sports has some top quality cycling aero helmets. You may want to consider a time trial helmet with visor if it is going to be sunny as keeping the sun out of your eyes could gain you a few extra seconds. A visor will also be useful if it is raining as this will keep the rain out of your eyes which can equally give you an advantage over your rivals.
With cycle helmets there is also the safety aspect as it is possible that you could come off your bike, be this through colliding with another competitor, hitting some unexpected terrain or through plain old fatigue; and wearing a helmet can save you from serious injury.
And there is one more reason why it makes sense to wear a helmet and that is for speed. It may not be the first thing that crosses you mind but aerodynamics can shave vital seconds off your time and so picking a helmet with a streamlined design is also important.
We offer a full range of aero helmets cycling equipment and everything else you will need for a successful triathlon, so be sure to check our other departments when kitting yourself out.
