Please clarify what you are talking about when you refer to support. Other than the entire comparison between the shoes being pointless, the use of the word support without explanation makes this article very confusing for readers. Many will think it is referring to how well the shoe corrects over-pronation. see conversation

I have worn rocktape like this at most tris I have done, never had any comments from the race ref.

So this shoe has been marked down because the reviewer didn't use it as intended? This is a training shoe for getting in the miles with maximum cushioning to reduce strain on joints. Saying its bad because the reviewer didn't want to use it for this is not helpful to your readers. see conversation

I would suggest it would be best for you to make the effort to go to a proper triathlon shop with a wide range of suits and get all the advice you need in order to buy the right suit first time. As you say, you are a newbie and therefore may not know youve got the right size even if you have. If youre not used to wetsuits you may think its too tight when its actually a perfect fit. Getting advice from a shop would stop this happening!!

Also you cant really narrow brands down before youve tried them on. You may not suit a 2xu. see conversation

Thankyou very much for all the replies so far. They have been very useful!

I would like to ask another question...

Is there aspect of triathlons you think could be improved?? This could be to do with the organisation, equipment (such as in transition areas)....etc. Anything you can think of!

Thankyou again for your help!!! see conversation

Hello, I’m Holly and I’m a student at University College Falmouth in Cornwall. I was hoping you lovely ladies and gentlemen could help me out with some research I’m conducting for a project about designing for triathletes. I’ve been a spectator at a few triathlons recently (Wombourne, Nantwich, Mylor, Wadebridge), and have a real interest in your sport especially as my boyfriend competes in many tris.

Basically I just want to know a little bit about you…I have some specific questions, but any information you want to give me about you and triathlons will be very very helpful!! This is what I need to know:

- A little bit of background info about yourself – age, occupation, children??
- Why did you get into triathlons? How many have you competed in so far?
- How much training do you do, and what sort of training??
- What training and triathlon products do you own? (bikes, weights…etc)
- What’s your favourite thing about competing, and what’s the worst thing?
- Why do you compete? What motivates you?

…and finally, anything else you want to tell me. Rambling on about the subject is good!!

Thankyou for taking the time to read my (rather long) plea for help! Any response you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
