Saw this pop-up in my Twitter feed, and now I'm providing them with free hits, but there you go.

Just what Transition needs. Zero use in big 'clear transition' races with racked bags, and I'd imagine no room for them in small domestic events, so you'd have to cart it out under your arm anyway - what a PITA. Who is going to buy this? Needs to be Audi keys in the picture btw.

What's wrong with a bog standard rucksack? You can ride your bike & gear to transition - which I've found rather useful in big events....

Stop trying to hold back the tides of progress Jorgan. This IS THE FUTURE of triathlon.

The lockable storage is a particularly astute feature - with the only way around it I can see (and I appreciate I am a master criminal) is by running off with the whole box.

He can get his oversized helmet in as well - that has to be a tick on the pro side.

I once racked next to Scott Neldie (sp) at a race, he used a Tesco carrier bag.

I've used one of those big 50p Ikea bags a few times too.

Guys, get with the programme. Call yourselves triafleets?

It's new, you haven't got one, you must buy it. It's even got a reference to marginal gains in the sales blurb.

If no-one ever spends all their disposable income on triathlon related stuff, how is the sport ever going to move forward (marginally)?

I'm still sticking to my 15 YO karrimor rusksack as I'm a luddite

I think he's got it spot on in catering for those people for whom a bento box just isn't enough for their race nutrition, saves taping 20 gels to the top tube. You could also rest your chest on it when in the aero position Smile What's not to like, although I think I'll wait for the carbon fibre version with integrated hydration system Laughing

Get with the programme Jorgen, you're turning into a grumpy old man Wink

It does provide somewhere public to show-off your Ironman/70.3 event stickers I suppose; I use my tool box for that Rolling Eyes

Maybe they could add a refrigeration unit, so that in hot races you can grab a cool beverage during and after the race. Ice packs you say? That'll never catch-on. Of course, it'll need solar panels to power it; which could also power the Satphone you'll use to let relatives know you successfully completed your Sprint tri. My goodness, it's like speccing an Audi - a bottomless cash pit. Bronze matte finish anyone?

The lockable section appears to be a drink bottle shaped bit that fits in the foam recess. You would not need to steal the whole box you could just steal the little plastic tub.

If you stole the whole box you would need to also steal a bike on which to transport it.


And yes - I sniggered at "oversized helmet" Rolling Eyes

....but you could just walk out of transition with someone's box; much like stealing a bicycle in China, the Triathlon world will be awash with them.

Perhaps it could be used for cricket too?

How much are they? Reassuringly expensive?

You wouldn't need to steal a bike - you could carry it by any one of the numerous lifting strategies highlighted in the video (I personally would use the two hand approach, rather than the top handle)

I sniggered at your sniggering. Very Happy
