  • i-ride proudly sponsor 16 year old triathlete Honor Rendall. 
    After a successful and a major ‘learning and catch-up year’ in 2013, finishing a very respectable 6th place in the U20 category at the European Triathlon Age group Championships, 2014 is sure to offer new challenges and more achievements as Honor takes on her first year as a junior competitor.

    We have supplied Honor with an Argon 18 Gallium road bike along with a Catlike Mixino helmet, Northwave Tribute shoes, Fulcrum Red Wind XLR wheels, Prologo saddle and bar tap, Continental tires as well as our Northwave custom kit.

    Honors first race of 2014 was in March at Eton Dorney where she took part in a Sprint Duathlon where she came both first overall female and first Junior.  

    As a young, up and coming British triathlete the next 4 years will be a huge learning experience for Honor, and we at i-ride are pleased and excited to help her along her way. 
     

  • We are pleased to announce that a new UK agreement sees the BikeFit range exclusively available to i-ride.

    BikeFit’s fitting systems and ethos are hugely respected in the industry and their process views the foot/pedal interface as being a key part of the perfect fit. Speedplay pedals are praised by BikeFit as being the most adjustable to the riders fit needs making this new agreement ideal.

The Forefoot measuring device (£49.99 SRP) helps identify the perfect foot position then cleat cant wedges (19.99 SRP pack of 8), leg length shims (£17.99 SRP each) for all major pedal systems and pedal spacers/washers allow this ideal position to be achieved. There are also in shoe forefoot and heel wedges, plus cleat screws and kits to make shoe, leg and knee alignment hassle free.

  • We at i-ride proudly sponsor British triathlete twins Tom and David Bishop and it was a busy weekend for the brothers both at home and abroad. 

    Tom (pictured above) raced on a Gallium Pro alongside fellow Brit Jonathan Brownlee at the ITU World Triathlon event in Auckland, and had a strong middle section on the bike. 

    David was at the National Duathlon championship at the Rockingham motor racing Circuit in Corby, Northamptonshire and finished in 5th, and 2nd in the U23 category.
    He said: “It was decent result for me as I didn’t train down for it as much as I usually would do. The first run went out pretty fast. We went through 5k in just over 15mins. The bike was a fairly decent pace and we managed to stay away from the two chase packs. There were about 130 elites racing over the male junior / senior race, so it was the most competitive it has been for a while!”
