lockbox saca la cartera / tri low cost ,competitor style

Lockbox, es una cartera de silicona estanca pensada, en un principio, para que ciclistas pudiesen llevar de forma cómoda y segura lo básico para llevar la documentación y dinero para tomarse algo al acabar la salida.

Lockbox nace con el objetivo de maximizar la capacidad y el rendimiento de un espacio reducido -de tan solo 99x16x19mm- y potenciar así la comodidad de la cartera.

Lockbox combina una gran sencillez conceptual con la complejidad tecnológica que dicho reto requiere. En una parte se pueden almacenar dos monedas sobre las que encajan, de forma milimétrica, tarjetas y carnets de medida estandar. En el lado opuesto se encuentra un bolsillo denominado Pelican Pocketideado para llevar billetes, tickets, una llave plana o una tarjeta SD entre otros.

Estanca, minimalista, atractiva, y con la silicona Platinum como base del producto. A diferencia de la silicona normal, la versión Platinum mejora la durabilidad, ligereza y resistencia a la deformación por compresión. Además de por estas condiciones más técnicas, Lockbox está hecha de silicona porque este es un material blando, por lo que en caso de caída o impacto, el deportista no corre el riesgo de sufrir daño alguno.

En Junio de 2012 comienza la distribución de Lockbox y pronto empezó a popularizarse entre los habituales de las dos ruedas, gracias en parte a la afinidad que deportistas de la talla de José Hermida - 4 veces Olímpico -, Kilian Jornet – máximo referente del trail running - o el equipo Olímpico español de natación sincronizada mostraron hacia el producto.

Lockbox ha sido pensada para transportar documentación, tarjetas y dinero de manera cómoda y segura. Para garantizar la máxima calidad de materiales y acabados, toda la producción se realiza en Barcelona y cercanías.


Triathlon Gear Upgrades
By Aaron Hersh
An expensive price doesn’t guarantee that one product is an upgrade over a more affordable option. Look for these key attributes next time you’re shopping for some “free speed.” Pick up the 2013 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide, on newsstands now, for more on these products. The page numbers where you can find each example are provided below.

Thin rubber on the upper body is often more flexible than thicker rubber, but also less buoyant. 2XU’s X:3 (page 24) combines both key benefits by using stretchable neoprene on the shoulders and aerated panels on the chest. Fit is still king, and this suit is tailored for trim, athletic physiques.

Tri cycling shoes
Strapping shoes on in T1 then clanking out of transition on cleats is slow. Tri shoes can slip on easily while rolling down the road after a flying mount. They should also be light and have a stiff sole. Not every upgrade has to be expensive; the Louis Garneau Tri Lites (page 54) meet all those requirements and they cost half the price of some top-end shoes.

Comfortable saddle
If a rider’s position isn’t right, the saddle won’t feel comfortable, and the reverse is also true. The ISM Attack (page 66) is perfect for getting into an aero tuck and staying there. Try a few saddles until you find one that agrees with your anatomy.

Regardless of lens quality, gasket size or any other feature, if a goggle doesn’t seal reliably, it sucks. The TYR Special Ops (page 16) forms a gentle yet solid bond and is color customizable.

A helmet is similar to a wetsuit in that it has to fit to be fast. Designed for uncompromising aerodynamic performance, the Lazer Wasp (page 56) is incredibly narrow and has a long tapered tail that may complement aggressive positions.

Running watch
The ability to monitor current speed while running can dramatically improve training quality for the all-important final leg. On top of that key function, Garmin’s 910 XT (page 99) adds
a seamless multisport mode to simplify race-day data. Its relatively small package and reliable battery make it the best in the business.

Cycling computer
If a cycling computer’s job is to collect and share ride data, the Garmin 510 (page 58) is the first head unit for the era of digital training. It simplistically displays every relevant metric and uploads seamlessly, even allowing others to track your progress in real time.

Running shoe
For a shoe to be fast, it has to match the runner’s stride and weigh as little as possible. The Saucony Fastwitch 6 (page 96) is a featherweight shoe that has just enough cushioning and comfort to make it a burner. Quick-laces such as those from Greeper Sport Laces will have you out of T2 as fast as possible.

Race wheels
Aerodynamic drag sets a wheel’s potential speed, and its stability determines whether wind-tunnel performance translates to faster times. The Enve SES 9’s (page 78) broad rim shape excels at both. It has been proven aerodynamically effective, and also helps stabilize the wheels in heavy winds.

When components are working perfectly, you don’t even notice they’re there. Shimano Dura-ace 9000′s (page 68) shifting and braking performance is so good when adjusted, all you’ve got to think about is the ride.

Race kit
Aerodynamic testing conducted by Pearl Izumi demonstrated that clothing is one of the most essential pieces of equipment when it comes to aerodynamic drag. Blue Seventy’s TX3000 (page 104) doesn’t just fit tightly, it fits precisely, conforming to every body contour without irritation.
