Rock Star Triathlete Academy Deal of the Week: Headsweats Gear
If you’re a triathlete, this has happened to you; you’re outside having an epic run on a nice summer day and all of a sudden you wince in agony from the sweat that just ran into your eye…you rip off your sunglasses, drop them to the ground, and during your “sweat blindness” you accidentally stumble on a rock or debris on the road, ending up with a scraped knee or worse. Well, this week’s Trinero deal will keep the sweat out of your eyes and let you enjoy that nice summer day: for $25 you’ll get $40 to spend at Headsweats.com, makers of the top performance hats and visors in the game.
Back in 1998, Alan Romick was tired of sweat blindness and founded Headsweats and he set out to develop headgear that works. Once a photo was seen of his product on the Tour de France rider in the New York Times, the secret was out and triathletes and cyclists have purchased over a million pieces of headgear that have dominated podiums in sports worldwide.
Today, Headsweats has a complete collection of headwear – performance hats, visors, headbands, beanies and more that feature washable, air-light, wicking fabrics that dominate triathlon, cycling, rowing and adventure races. They know you’ll be thrilled with their products and offer a 100% Unconditional Guarantee on all their gear.
Headsweats also features a complete line of Ironman logo headwear and Tour de France logo headwear. (BTW, if you haven’t noticed, Headsweats is sponsoring Le Tour coverage on Versus!)
Get ready to head out into the sun by picking up this Trinero deal from Headsweats. $25 gets you $40 to go spend over at Headsweats.com. And while there’s no limit on how many people can pick up the deal, you can only pick up 2 of these each to stuff into your jersey pocket. Click here to grab this deal!
Rock Star Triathlete Academy Deal of the Week: TMAT PRO Triathlon Mat
Triathletes know that there’s more to a race than just swimming, biking and running. In between each leg of the race are the transitions, and it’s during the swim-to-bike transition and bike-to-run transition that precious time and energy can be won and lost. A good transition can make for a great race while a bad transition can lead to a poor race. This week’s Trinero deal will help improve your transitions and set you on the road to a PR: for $21 you’ll get the TMAT PRO Triathlon & Sport Mat shipped directly to your front door just in time for your next race.
Introduced to the sport of triathlon in 2006, TMAT PRO has led to the revolution of the transition area where towels, bath mats and even carpeting was being used to identify the space where athletes change between the three sports, the swim, bike and run. By creating a mat in bright colors, competitors can quickly find their space and a have soft, absorbent surface to transition to the next sport. The mat was perfected with the feedback from dozens of athletes who participate in sports including Iron-distance triathlons and marathons and hiking and yoga activities.
The mat is made of water absorbent neoprene material with a non-skid, gridded bottom that keeps the mat in place. It’s lightweight and easily transportable in a backpack or a suitcase. It provides the ideal stretching and changing area anywhere. The mat is also machine washable and fast drying so it’s ready to go again at your next event.
This Trinero deal is for the Neon Green mat, but the TMAT PRO standard line of colors includes red, blue, purple, neon green, bright yellow and hot pink. There are also different patterns available and custom logos can be printed on the mats, making it a great way to promote your team, company or event. Click here to grab this deal!
