Trigger Point GRID 2.0 Foam Roller$65 1 of 5
While a professional massage is always nice, it's also expensive. At half the cost of one session, the GRID 2.0 from Trigger Point will help roll out knots and kinks in post-run muscles while promoting increased circulation and overall flexibility. The self-massage tool is also designed for larger bodies and provides a firm, stable feel. But be forewarned: Movie nights may now include a routine foam rolling session on the living room floor.
Oakley EVZero Range Prizm Road$170 2 of 5
The new EVZero from Oakley is the brand's lightest frame and provides excellent peripheral coverage for those bright summer days. While the lens might not be as large as Oakley's popular Jawbreaker model, the rimless design has a similar feel without the extra weight. The Plutonite lens material also provides 100 percent protection from ultraviolet light and up to 400 nm protection from harmful blue lights. And as far as comfort goes, the longer your ride rolls along, the less you'll notice these shades resting on the bridge of your nose.
Chamois Butt'r GoStik3 of 5
You're probably familiar with their popular chamois cream, but Chamois Butt'r recently introduced a solid stick lubricant, the GoStik. Designed for runners, cyclists and triathletes, you can apply this fragrance-free, anti-chafe formula anywhere you feel skin rubbing on skin or skin rubbing on fabric. With a high melting point, the GoStik lasts longer in hot and extreme race conditions than other brands on the market--so apply once and keep blisters and raw skin from ruining your next PR attempt.
Specialized S-Works Evade Tri$225 4 of 5
While those alien-like aero helmets have obvious aerodynamic advantages, their lack of ventilation can make a hot and humid race miserable. The S-Works Evade Tri helmet combines ventilation and performance in a breathable and aerodynamic package. The 4th Dimension Cooling System includes deep internal channels, large vents and aligned exhaust ports--perfect for wicking sweat and body heat from your scalp. Not only is the helmet cool, but Specialized claims it saves 46 seconds over 40 km when tested against a standard road helmet. The magnetic buckle is a nice touch as well, especially in transition.
