M3 Youth and Junior Elite Gear List
M3 will provide Tri Suit
M3 will provide Race Belt
M3 visors available for purchase
Bike box used for transportation (elite team) – rentals available at Bonzai
Wetsuit – tri specific wetsuit – rentals available at Bonzai
Road bike - Youth / Junior Elite – road bike with 10 or 11 speed cassette
Development – If you own a hybrid bike this is ok initially but longer term I would advise that you either rent or purchase a road bike as this is going to help with bike position / handling etc.
Rental Options from M3 Bike
Evo 8 speed – this is a good initial bike but if you are doing junior elite series races, I suggest something that is lighter
Orbea Avant M30 – this is an 11 speed bike, good components, lighter than above. Great bike for junior elite races)
If you plan to purchase, please let me know. 10/11 speed and lighter is better as the athlete will grow then with the bike.
(for junior elite series races, I strongly suggest something with 10 / 11 gears as these bikes are compatible with the kickr trainers we use)
Spare tube, CO2 cartridges and inflator and bag to attach to bike (Amazon) https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Innovations-G2507-Tri-Road-Inflation/dp/B001MW264I/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1510938375&sr=8-14&keywords=co2+inflator+kit
Triathlon specific bike shoes
You will be ok initially in running shoes on flat pedals but the sooner you get into bike shoes the more confidence you build. Bike shoes should be triathlon specific.
