Kimberley Morrison's Giant Trinity Advanced Pro 1

Pro Bike: Kimberley Morrison’s Giant Trinity Advanced Pro 1

Is Kimberley Morrison (www.kimberleymorrison.co.uk) Great Britain’s latest female Middle and Long distance über-biker? If so, we are going to be seeing a lot more of her bike for 2017, the Giant Trinity Advanced Pro 1. Let’s take a detailed look at her new ride.

The first ‘Pro Bike’ we featured this year was of Laura Siddall (CEEPO Viper-R). Laura set the fastest bike split at both Challenge Wanaka and IRONMAN New Zealand on her new ride – and Kimberley did the same in her first race of 2017, at IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai, leaving her in the very lofty company of running side-by-side with IRONMAN World Champion Daniela Ryf leaving T2.

On Sunday, Kimberley will be racing at IRONMAN 70.3 Buenos Aires, Argentina – a race she won last year by just nine seconds – and if she is to retain that title again, leaving everyone else behind on the bike will certainly be on he ‘to do’ list…

Product Profile: ASICS #FlyteFoam 2017 range

Tuesday’s ASICS #FlyteFoam launch at Tower Bridge in Central London was a lavish affair, including the presence of reigning IRONMAN World Champion Jan Frodeno to share his experiences of the new FlyteFoam™ shoe models from the footwear giant. (You can watch our interview with Jan Frodeno, on THIS LINK).

What is #FlyteFoam and which new running shoes have been launched?

To get the inside track on the three new models: Noosa FF, DS Trainer 22 and Dynaflyte models, we asked ASICS Product Manager Mike to talk us through the properties of FlyteFoam™ and the details of the new product lines. Watch the video above for the inside track.

The imposing surrounds of Tower Bridge, Central London played host last night to a highly impressive launch of a new shoe from ASICS, the Noosa FF™. ‘FF’ in this case refers to FlyteFoam™. In their words…

“Our FlyteFoam technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.”

Jan Frodeno talks…

Having flown in two-time and defending IRONMAN World Champion, Jan Frodeno, specially for the evening, we took the chance to grab some time with the undisputed king of men’s long-distance triathlon right now.

Jan talks about his mentally challenging Kona race of 2016, “nailing” Kona 2017, breaking records and why Super League Triathlon will produce “the ultimate sprinter”, rather than the ultimate athlete!

Laura Siddall's CEEPO Viper R TT

Pro Bike: Laura Siddall’s CEEPO Viper-R

Laura Siddall’s new 2017 race bike: CEEPO Viper-R

Great Britain’s Laura Siddall (www.laurasiddall.com) has been in fine and improving form over the past couple of years.

The former multiple World Age-Group Champion has well an truly made the transition to top performing professional. Less than two weeks ago she came within 28 seconds of victory at Challenge Wanaka after a race-long battle with Yvonne van Vlerken. That was her third consecutive second place at the “world’s most scenic long distance triathlon“.

Much of her success has been down to her speed on two wheels – and for 2017, she’s riding a new steed, this CEEPO Viper-R (www.ceepo.com).

It appears a good match too, Laura riding it to a bike course record in Wanaka by more than nine and a half minutes.

The CEEPO will be back out again on Saturday at IRONMAN New Zealand. And before you think, “that’s not enough time to recover”, last year Laura went even faster in Taupo, finishing a fine fourth, only four minutes adrift of Lucy Gossage.

HUUB Albacore wetsuit

HUUB Albacore: their fastest wetsuit yet?

HUUB launch the Albacore wetsuit at Triathlon Show: London 2017

Albacore? An explanation…

“In 1949 US researchers set out to create the fastest, most hydrodynamic and agile submarine in the world – named ‘The Albacore’. The groundbreaking project took them on a journey of idea generation, testing, retesting and continual improvement, the ultimate example of Science, Research, Reality.”

It was five years ago at the Sandown Park Triathlon Show that the HUUB (www.huubdesign.com) brand was revealed to the general public, and we were there at the start with founder, Dean Jackson, when we ran through the original Archimedes and Aura wetsuits in this video.

Much has changed in those five years, and once again we were at a Triathlon Show with Dean – this time at the ExCeL Centre – to take a first look at the latest addition to the HUUN range, the Albacore.

You can find out more about the Albacore on the HUUB website.
