Fizik Tri Gel Pads review
Despite all the carbon fibre, aerodynamic shaping and multi axis adjustment on the latest tri bars, most still use very basic elbow pads. Which is where Fizik come in.
The translucent Technogel elbow pads feel weird against bare arms at first, but once they’ve warmed up they’re fantastically comfortable with excellent shock absorption and grip. They provoke less sweat than you’d imagine and at 50g each they’re not heavy.
Different versions are available to fit Syntace, Vision and Profile armrests and they can be trimmed for a custom fit on pretty much everything.
The soft cloth backing means they fit directly on to your current Velcro pads and they’re removable for washing.
At less than a fiver more than standard replacement pads we reckon they’re a bargain.
