Elastic Laces Vs Standard Laces – Which Are Faster For Triathletes?

Published on June 22nd 2018


If you want faster triathlon times, one of the best places to look is the transition. Think of it as free speed. To improve at transitions, many triathletes use elastic laces in their runnings. But, are they really faster? Subscribe to GTN: http://gtn.io/SubscribetoGTN Check out the GTN Shop: http://gtn.io/ba There are two schools of thought when it comes to elastic laces. Firstly, they make your transition quicker, so they must be quicker. And, secondly, yes, they do help for a faster transition, but they're maybe not the fastest laces for the actual running. Today, we're not going to put the actual running leg to the test. That's because there are just *too* many variables here. However, if you'd like to see that, make sure you leave us a comment and we'll get Mark to go to work and come up with some sort of test... So, this video is all about the transition. Like we said, this is pretty much free speed since you're saving time rather than needing to get fitter to run faster. We'd love to read your thoughts on this one, so make sure that you get stuck in down in the comments below.
