Ironman / tri Bike?

Hello ... I am doing Ironman Zurich next year  , i have done 70.3 uk before and a couple of other things but my question is , do i need a tri specific bike for the full distance? Will it make a big difference to my experience/performance.


  • No it's not essential. I'd think it's about 50/50 the split between road and tri bikes.

    You probably get about 90% of the benefit of a tri bike just by fitting tri bars to a road bike.

    Switzerland is a nice course - either bike would be fine.
  • Thanks Cougie.
