Elite Tri Box review
The past few seasons we’ve seen an influx of fantastic transition bags from Amphibia, Ventoux and Ogio loaded with more functions than a Swiss Army knife.
On paper, Elite’s pricey Tri Box takes the ultimate tri bag/box title, coming complete with a fold-out shoe organiser and changing mat. A key sell is that it combines the size of the plastic tubs you see frequenting transition with the practicality of a bag, offering straps, compartments and a dry bag.
We were ready to wheel out our ‘Citizen Kane of triathlon bags’ line until we used the thing. That the whole box collapses down is a great touch. It’s just that, when fully loaded, the side zips kept coming undone when we had it on, spilling kit on the floor.
This is a result of the lid being infuriatingly difficult to secure, which meant multiple attempts to clamp it in place. And it’s a real shame, as the design is clever and it’s clearly been developed by triathletes with vast experience of transition turmoil.
Verdict: So close to the ultimate tri bag, but it has one fatal flaw, 81%
