SPOTTED | CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

TriSlide / TriSwim / Foggle

WHY WE LOVE IT :

Made by SBR SPORTS Inc (not us!), we have a lot of reasons why we love this trio made by our namesake :

Photobucket

TriSlide = We’ve tested the TriSlide a couple of times during training rides and have been pretty pleased with the results. Just spray it and forget about it. TriSlide is a good anti chafing alternative if you’re like me who hates getting their hands sticky and gooey!

Photobucket

TriSwim = You name it, they made it! Chlorine be gone! Simply put, the TriSwim product line is the complete “after swimming” solution for every triathlete who swims in the pool a lot. Plus we love the citrus smell! We’ll be honest though, we still haven’t tried the body lotion. We prefer our skin super dry and dandy after swimming 🙂

Photobucket

Foggle = If your goggles fogs a lot (yes, we know spit works too but dang!), you might want to give Foggle a try. Available in small towelettes, just wipe a thin film and let it dry. We bet that you’ll be pretty amazed with the results! You can also re-use the towelettes for up to 5-6x as per the website, but you have to keep it in an airtight container. Ours lasted for 3 applications before we had to open another one. I also Foggle on my sunglasses and it works there as well!

The Price :

TriSlide (aerosol spray) – Php 650
TriSwim Shampoo – Php 550
TriSwim Conditioner – Php 650
TriSwim Body Wash – Php 550
TriSwim Body Lotion – Php 550
Foggle (1 Display Pop Box – 48 individual towelettes) – Php 750, Php35/piece

On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • Simple Hydration Water Bottle

Photobucket

The design and concept of this water bottle is so simple (no pun intended) yet so unique, it’s now our favorite hydration bottle! We’re fine with hydration belts don’t get us wrong but sometimes, it’s a pain in the a*s to prepare especially if you’re doing a brick workout. Most of the time you just want to grab your bottle and run! The Simple Hydration Water Bottle’s unique design allows your hands to hold it comfortably. The curved wedge part on top also acts as stopper so that it wont slip if you put it inside your pocket or slide it inside your shorts. Here’s a cool thing about it, despite the odd shape and the small base, it stands even if it’s filled with water!

On the third day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • Sony Xperia Acro S

Photobucket
If you’re a triathlete looking for the perfect phone, look no further, get the Sony Xperia Acro S! Let’s put it this way, we actually had a choice between an iPhone 5 and the Sony Xperia, and we chose the latter. We have absolutely zero regrets about our decision.  I used this phone to document my entire New York City Marathon trip. I ran the entire de-facto NYC Marathon 42k with this tucked inside my tri shorts. It packs a mean 12mp camera plus the screen clarity is absolutely superb. HD baby! Oh, it’s waterproof too. ‘Nuff said.

The Price :

Php 20k ++

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • Beljum Budder

Photobucket

We got a couple of Beljum Budder anti chafing creams for review a couple of months back. It works just like any other anti chafing cream out there except that it leaves a cool, tingly, sensation after you rub it in. I don’t know if that’s a good thing for everyone but it certainly felt good! Another good thing about the Beljum Budder is that it’s very easy to wash off and doesn’t stick in the chamois. It can get pretty messy to apply though so you have to be careful.

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • Maxxis Radiale

Photobucket

We’ve been rolling with joy with these bad boys for a couple of months now. The Radiale’s corners well and rolls really smoothly. We’re just not comfortable with the recommended psi which is 130 psi (the max of the tire is 145 psi). Also, take note that these are race tires and so don’t expect them to last very long. However, they ride so nice, we do not care. A huge upgrade over the SBR.ph forum beloved Kenda Kalientes.

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • SLS3 Compression Gear Apparel

  • Photobucket

    Photobucket

Already proven in the compression department, SLS3 is coming up with more colors and styles in their apparel line. We just can’t wait to get our hands on the new all white tri top and race shorts! Perfect for the blazing hot 2013 Philippine racing season!

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • Spider Bottle

    Photobucket

Now, this is where mixing and water bottles gets interesting.The Spider Bottle provides a healthy way to mix protein drinks or any powdered drinks on the go. It has multi-level compartments wherein you can store your favorite recovery powder and mix it anytime, anywhere! It also has a provision for your pills and other multivitamins. No problem if you just want to fill it with water as you can easily remove any of the compartments and just carry what you need for the day.

Depends on the model but the one that we tested (pictured above) retails for Php 990.

On the eight day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • Ultima Replenisher

  • Photobucket

We’ll be honest. We’ve had our doubts with this product. However, during one training ride we forgot to bring our nutrition and decided to give Ultimate Replisher a go.  Suffice to say, it powered us all throughout the training ride. It’s pretty light and easy on the stomach too. As we didn’t have breakfast before the training ride.

The Price :

Ultima (1 Display Box – 30 packets: Red Raspberry, Orange, Lemonade, and Grape) – Php 995, Php35/piece
Ultima (small canister: Red Raspberry, Orange, Lemonade, and Grape) – Php 795

On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • TIMEX Cycle Trainer

  • Photobucket

The TIMEX Cycle Trainer is TIMEX’s first dibs in the super competitive cycling computer department. It’s no secret that the cycle trainer was created to go mano-y-mano with the other well known ant+ equipped cyclo computers out there. How does it compare with the other computers we’ll leave it up to you to decide as we’ve yet to test ours extensively. But from the looks alone, the TIMEX Cycle Trainer gets an automatic +1.

On the tenth day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • Fluid Recovery Drink

  • Photobucket

Fluid Recovery Drink was voted as the best sports/recovery drink of 2008 by the competitor group. Need I say more? Oh, we highly recommend the chocolate wave flavor!

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me…

  • Clif Shot Turbo

Photobucket

Hey, if it’s good enough for Macca, it’s good enough for us right? The Clif Shot Turbo is the nutrition choice of multiple Ironman World Champion Chris “Macca” McCormack. You can’t argue with success. The concentration may take a little getting used to as it’s a bit on the thicker side.
