A Tip from Emilio:  Prolong the life of your clothing.

The information below applies to just about all brands of triathlon apparel.   1.  Do not wear your product repeatedly in hot showers, hot tubs, steam rooms, saunas, and do not wash them repeatedly in hot water.  Repeated exposure to hot water and hot surfaces burns the spandex fibers, leaving the material prematurely diaphanous.  Do not put them in the dryer, do not place them near a heater, and do not dry them with a hair dryer, oven, or microwave; and yes people have done all these.  Suit spinners are fine, but nothing that emits heat.   2.  Use the...

A TIP FROM EMILIO:  STEP THIS WAY! (An easy way to put on & remove a tri top)

Full-Zip Tri Tops are all the rage.  We sell lots of them, but our biggest sellers are still Half-Zip Tops.  The advantages of half-zip tops are they usually cost a bit less, they tend to be longer so they cover the midsection and low back, and you can still unzip for comfort and cooling.  It seems like the only disadvantage is they are harder to put on and take off.  I have a solution for you! STEP THIS WAY! Step 1.  Unzip the top. Step 2.  Step into the unzipped neck opening. Step 3.  Pull the top up to onto your hips (the top slips...

A TIP FROM EMILIO: WASH YOUR HELMET...AND YOUR BIKE SHOES....AND YOUR RUNNING SHOES......PLEASE!

When was the last time you washed your bike helmet, your bike shoes, and your running shoes? If you have been wearing them, and haven’t done so in the past few months, they probably stink. If you can’t smell it, ask someone else to, then look at their face…the truth comes without words being spoken. HELMET: Are the straps white with salt deposits, and are the little pads slippery from sunscreen and hair product, and is the outside stained with grime? I rinse my Rudy Project Helmet after almost every ride. It is 7 years old and looks brand new...

A Tip from Emilio:  EMILIO’S FIRST LAW OF TRIATHLON

EMILIO'S FIRST LAW OF TRIATHLON:  Never wear, use, or do anything in a race that you have not worn, used, or done repeatedly in training.  It is called training for a reason, you are not only physically and mentally preparing your body for the race, you are also preparing your bike, clothing, nutrition, and any other equipment, to perform as you expect. When the expectation is met, then on race day you are able to think about the race and not about the equipment. We welcome your comments, questions, and of course please share! Live well, Emilio De Soto
