Lycra Tri Suits – Latest Design from O2 Fit


New 02 Tri Suit – $70.00 AUD online

The great thing about the 02 Tri Suit is the ability to pretty much run, swim, go to the gym and have a really intense workout and not worry about having to change your clothing between activities.

Tri suits, whilst made for triathlons are a really functional piece of workout attire. A typical workout might include a run or walk to get the body warm, followed by a gym workout with weights, To finish off a workout might also include a swim at the end (just shower though so you are clean before you get in).

O2 Compression makes this Black Men’s Trisuit and states that the benefits include:

o2fit’s triathlon suits is sleek and fitted in a way to give you the best performance in both your triathlon training and on the big day.

The suit allows you to swim, ride and run without needing to spend time changing gear during the transitions. Most professional triathletes will wear a triathlon suit because it offers an all-in-one, multi-purpose garment that can be worn from the moment you arrive, right through to the recovery period after the event.

Our triathlon suits include chamois padding (micro fleece 85% polyester + 15% spandex) in the crotch for comfort during the ride, while not impeding swimming or running ability.

They are made from quick dry material which will ensure that you dry off as quickly as possible between the swim and the ride to prevent chafe.

Other benefits include:

  • Leg grippers so you don’t have to worry about the short legs riding up while you train or race
  • Reduced drag in the water to ensure you perform at your best and aren’t overworked in the early stages of the event reducing muscle oscillation upon ground contact increasing torque generated about joints
  • Reducing the risk of injury by enhancing recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate and improving subsequent exercise performance increasing feelings of positive leg sensations both during and following strenuous exercise
  • Reducing the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise

Our strategic flat-lock stitching means enhanced comfort and a great fit.

Does o2fit compression products have a UV rating?

Yes, all of our products have a UV rating of 50+.

Throw Down: Lycra or No Lycra


Great article about what to wear while biking covering a diverse set of views. Thanks for the post Performance Bicycle.

Performance Bicycle Blog

To wear or not to wear, that is the question. Few things seem to divide cycling tribes quite as much as lycra clothing. While for some, a pair of padded bike shorts and a zip up jersey are necessities, for others they are an eye sore that carries certain connotations with it. To be certain, lycra isn’t for everyone—and choosing to wear it or not to wear it is a personal choice.

As with most debates, neither side is right or wrong, necessarily. For the sake of argument though, let’s take a look at some of the pro’s and con’s of lycra.

Lycra is something most riders find a lot of benefit in...but not everyone Lycra is something most riders find a lot of benefit in…but not everyone

Pro’s:

  • Super Comfortable: There’s no two ways about it, properly fitting lycra shorts and a good jersey are some of the most comfortable clothing you’ll ever wear
  • Feeling Fast: Wearing lycra can make you feel…

Bike shorts….A necessary evil


Lovin those legs!

Reinventing the Wheel at 50

I’ve heard it said that how cool you look in lycra padded bike shorts is inversely related to the distance from your bike. In other words, when I’m standing next to my bike, I’m cool. When I walk into the convenience store, I’ve become a dork. That being said, after donning the awkward apparel, I would never ride a bike even for the shortest ride without them. This is a classic picture on how not to wear bike shorts.

There are some things you need to know about choosing appropriate bike shorts. There are a number of different styles and lengths for the various cycling disciplines. Like any other sport, most cyclists are a bit snobbish about how they look. Mountain Bikers like to wear long shorts over their padded ones and touring bikers are similar. We’ll focus on road cycling attire for this post.

First Look – SIX30 Cycling Compression Wear | Bicycles Network Australia


You may be already know that two of the biggest names in compression wear, 2XU and Skins, both have an Aussie heritage. This “performance sportswear” comes at a price, so the Australian online retailer Velogear founded the brand SIX30 for compression gear in a more affordable price category .

Bike Pants & Jersey Sale


ABC Bicycle Outlet is closing down. I noticed these Club bicycle shorts or bicycle knicks by UNO which are on sale for $15.00.

I’ve ordered from ABC previously and picked up cycling gloves two seasons ago for $5.00- which are still $5.00.

 

Club knicks

Club cycling knicks by UNO


UNO’s Club knicks  are identical in cut and have the same 3-dimensional (3D) CoolMax insert (chamois) as the Pro Peloton.

Both the Club and Pro Peloton are an  8-panel cut and both are made of qualityDuPont Lycra .

The difference is the Club is made of alighter Lycra , has a slightly shorter leg length, and has no leg gripper.

These 3 points allow them to be offered as entry-level knicks at a very affordable price. The Club knicks can also be worn as under knicks – under shorts, cargo pants, track suit or other loose-fitting trousers.

Available in sizes 2XS-3XL, where 2XS=28″ waist, XS=30, S=32, M=34, etc. 

 

Portsea

 

Portsea short sleeve cycling jersey by UNO

Portsea  for men or women. The AirFlow material is a slightly heavier weave than UNO’s Bondi, Cairns, Grafton and Saul Pasque, but being a  wicking fabric it allows for moisture transformation from the body to keep the rider cool and dry. 

Features include:

  •  3 rear pockets;
  • a full-length zip;
  • and elasticised arm bands and waist .

The Portsea  jersey comes in 2 colours: front & back, plus underarm and shoulder panels, eg:
* red with white panels,
* yellow with black or grey,
* blue with yellow, and
* black with white.

These and other great bargain cycling clothes or bicycle wear can be purchased at ABC Bicycle Outlets.
