New tri website hunts a bargain

One of the UK's top duathletes has launched a service to seek out the greatest gear bargains

One of the UK’s top duathletes has set up a new business aiming to make triathlon more affordable. Lee Piercy has represented GB at elite level and has won several world and European age-group titles. So he’s got the background knowledge to support his new venture, TRIdeals.co.uk.

Here’s the back story from Lee…

“The sport is renowned for being expensive, and in the midst of the precarious economic climate, this can be the tipping point to making the sport prohibitive, which is why we wanted to make it more affordable.

“I love chatting with fellow athletes at races and the two things I hear more than anything else is that people never have enough time to train and how expensive it is to have good quality equipment.”

TRIdeals has a team of deal searchers that spend hours looking for the very best online deals from a long list of triathlon/sports retailers and showcase them on their site. Only the best bargains are listed with many of products reduced by over 40%.

Lee explained, “There are some great deals out there but unfortunately you have to know where to look and it can take hours. What’s more frustrating than buying a pair of pedals only to find your friend got the same pair for half price? This has happened to me many times!” Lee concluded.

TRIdeals also shares the very best deals on their TRIdeals Facebook page and via Twitter. Simply by “liking” us on Facebook, you will be entered in the free prize draw for a chance to win a Garmin Forerunner 110 GPS watch.
