What equipment do I need?

As a beginner, you need a bike – not a fancy bike, not a triathlon bike – but a bike in good working order with gears.

Equipment can be expensive and TriLaVie® coaches like to guide you to the best choices so you don’t over-buy! Ask around and borrow to start.  You’d be surprised how many friends or neighbors have something for triathlon to lend. Use the TriLaVie® recommended professionals and shops.  TriLaVie® does NOT receive sponsorship or referral fees for any of our recommendations.  We partner with professionals who we believe have the highest integrity and are experts in their fields.
