The Nopinz TriBelt, the “SpeedBelt”, has been designed by Triathletes for Triathletes.
We listened to all niggles that you have with standard Tri belts and came up with a revolutionary design building on our Nopinz SpeedPocket technology to bring you the most ergonomic and aerodynamic Tri belt ever made.
Nopinz SpeedBelt is buckle-less to improve comfort both on the bike and on the run. Made from military-grade elastic the longevity and comfort of our next generation TriBelt is second to none.
Simply put your number into the TriBelt’s built-in SpeedPocket and step into the waistband. Flexible velcro technology is then used to secure your number to your lower back.
This innovative solution stops the number flapping thus improving your aerodynamics and removing the annoyance of a constantly flapping number. In track testing undertaken by AeroCoach Ltd, a standard flapping number belt can waste 5-8 watts, or more, compared to the Nopinz SpeedBelt – if a number un-hooks from a regular belt or is safety-pinned to the cycle top it can raise drag by 10 watts or more.
The “cost” of a SpeedBelt is around £3.50-£6.00 per watt or better.
The SpeedBelt can save up to 1.5-2 minutes over an IRONMAN event or enough energy to run a mile of the marathon or 70.3 race.
When ready to run peel up the SpeedPocket from the velcro tabs and bring it round to the front. No buckle to dig in will see your run comfort improved and with no chance of the number folding on itself you’ll keep the marshals and timekeepers happy.
The Nopinz SpeedBelt can be used under a wetsuit for the swim portion of the Triathlon where allowed.
Available with or without gel loops.
It is supplied with full care instructions and information on how to place the self-adhesive velcro dots.
