Indoors or outdoors? If last year revealed anything, it’s that a global pandemic isn’t going to stop triathletes finding ways to train and, if anything (time allowing), many of you came out of last year fitter and stronger and with a renewed set of goals, thanks to the need to adapt and train differently. This issue we have a special feature on maximising your turbo and treadmill time (p70) as well as an eight-week duathlon training plan that’s perfect if, like many, you’ve struggled to swim lately. While my turbo has its place, I’ll always be firmly in ‘team outdoors’ as, for me, fresh air and seeing the seasons change are the biggest motivators. Wherever we train though, let’s hope we can use all that hard work in some epic…

REAP VULCAN From £8,195 Reap’s ‘hyper-bike’ is a step up from their inaugural Generation 1.0, with an aero-integrated cockpit and BTA hydration system for “race readiness”. Named after the velocity and range of the Avro Vulcan bomber jet, this British built and designed beam bike is made for speed. A “holistic design approach” steers the rider into a more aerodynamic position by use of a ballistic cockpit with forearm-hugging aero extensions. Drag’s further reduced by use of the same V-frame design of the 1.0 and a shielded front derailleur. The fully adjustable set-up includes rotary dropout adjusters, a multi-position seatpost and choice of extensions height with angled shims. Disc brakes, Ultegra Di2, with choice of Parcours Passista or ENVE 7.8 wheels complete the set-up. Pros, including Elliot Smales and Fenella Langridge, are signed to…

hoka one one rocket x

Released at a virtual launch with three-time Ironman world champ Jan Frodeno the guest star, the new Hoka One One Rocket X is the latest carbon-infused release from the Cali-based brand (the Carbon X2 is also out now). Branded as an elite racing shoe, the Rocket X shares the same 1mm carbon plate as Hoka’s previous Carbon X, plus the unisex Rocket has an updated impact-absorbing compression-moulded EVA foam midsole and zonal rubber outsole. Crowned as the lightest model in Hoka history at only 210g, it’s kitted out with a stiff mesh upper, which has resulted in no structural need for overlay and toe-box. The early stage Meta-Rocker geometry shapes the subtle curvature of the sole, said to encourage an efficient stride motion. With a 5mm drop, it’s not as drastically curved…
