Firstly, a wetsuit. However this will only be used during a race, you should train at least 4 weeks pre-race day with the suit. A wetsuit can help reduce drag and keep you buoyant in the water which also influences your stroke angle, but this is giving you a competitive edge in the swim leg of your triathlon.


It's important to choose a wetsuit that fits well and provides the right amount of flexibility and warmth for the conditions. Orca has been on the market for years so take a look there.

Next, your bike. Your bike is your most important piece of equipment, and it's important to choose one that suits your needs and budget. A good bike set up along the correct size can help you conserve energy and maintain speed during the bike leg of your triathlon. But more importantly, make sure you are comfortable so that you are able to run of the bike.


Of course, safety is paramount, and a helmet is a must-have for any triathlete. A helmet will protect your head in the event of a fall or accident, and it's important to choose one that fits well and provides adequate ventilation. This is also important to get a high quality as it really serves as an airbag when you crash.

When it comes to the running leg of your triathlon, you need comfortable and supportive shoes and clothing. Triathlon-specific clothing is designed to be lightweight, breathable, and moisture-wicking, which will help keep you comfortable during the race. Properly fitting shoes with good support and traction are also essential for a successful run leg. Shoes need to be checked by a professional, and don't just buy the first shoe you see. Running in blisters is no fun :) 


Last but not least, swimming goggles. Goggles protect your eyes from the water and help you see clearly during the swim leg. It's important to choose goggles that fit well and provide good visibility, and also don't leak! Anti-fog is a top tip to add to your basket!
