M3 Youth and Junior Elite Gear List

Race Gear

  • 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


  • Paddles

  • Buoy

  • Swim cap

  • Goggles

  • Bathing suit


  • 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

  1. Evo 8 speed – this is a good initial bike but if you are doing junior elite series races, I suggest something that is lighter

  2. Orbea Avant M30 – this is an 11 speed bike, good components, lighter than above. Great bike for junior elite races)

Purchase Options

  1. 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.

  2. (for junior elite series races, I strongly suggest something with 10 / 11 gears as these bikes are compatible with the kickr trainers we use)

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. 

Cycle gear 

  • M3 will provide M3 cycle jersey

  • M3 cycle shorts (available for purchase) or other plain black bike shorts shorts

  • (elite team members should have 2-3 pairs of shorts)

  • Wind resistant skull cap to wear under helmet (we will not ride if temps are below 35 deg).

  • Wind resistant gloves

  • Outer shell wind proof jacket (I have some M3 cycle jackets in womens small available if anyone wants to purchase one)
