5 Clothing for a Triathlon For obvious reasons, you will need a swimsuit… Some athletes choose to change in transition area Many remain in their swimsuit for the entirety of the race OR Racesuits – triathlon-specific garments that wick away moisture. One or two-piece. aka Kits Our team uniforms for races

6 Tri Swimming Gear Goggles Swim cap Wet suit*

7 Tri Swimming Gear: Wet Suit* NOT required Increases buoyancy and reduces drag = better swim time Keep you warm! Warning: USAT rules do not allow wetsuits for water temperatures above 84°F Two main types: 1.Sleeved – some say better performance in griping water and will keep you warmer 2.Sleeveless – better flexibility and cheaper
