On this second day of our IRONMAN World Championships coverage in Kona, Hawaii we noticed new technology from Zwift, trendy shades from ROKA, various cool bikes, fast professional triathletes and much more...
Zwift was shown in Kona on iOS devices but it is only in Beta. The graphics looked very sharp both on an iPad and an iPhone.
With a Bluetooth enabled treadmill or a Bluetooth shoe pod you can run on the Zwift courses and race against folks around the world. But you can't run in the middle of the street as some folks do in real life, plus it is not available yet.
These very bright Aquasphere Kaiman EXO are sadly only available in small sizes - at least in Kona.
Aquasphere also showed a new not yet named swimskin.
American Sarah Piampiano with her new Cervelo P5X race bike.
Beth Gerdes and Luke McKenzie donated time today to assemble bikes for More Than Sport. These bikes will then be delivered to local schools
Mirinda Carfrae was available to media today and the fast Aussie sounded very confident and relaxed.
Finnish Pro Kaisa Lehtonen is flying a bit under the radar here in Kona.
ROKA Sports showed their new eyeglass collection. Initially inspired by the signature but not very practical aviators of Jesse Thomas, these new models offer form, function and fine Zeiss optics.
The ROKA Men's Elite Aero trisuit is also new for the brand, and it has some very nice details.
The iced coffee samples from Made Like Iron were a very welcome refreshment on a hot day.
The Louis Garneau designers did a fine job with keeping these Kona items simple, clean and stylish.
It appeared that this was the first encounter for German Pro Kristin Möller with the Bonk Breaker items.
That Diamondback Andean looks very good and fast in real life. And pics do not really do it justice.
Tim Don was spotted today with very cool wooden shades. He noticed and purchased them in Brazil.
The European Airstreeem brand is rarely seen on North American soil.
Triathletes are everywhere but life in Kona continues.
