At Trigirl, we take pride in having a women’s-specific product that really works for women because women are taking part throughout the design, development, production, and distribution process. One of the reasons that Trigirl makes great triathlon clothing for women is that we are women triathletes.
I recently saw a photo on Facebook of a woman who proudly announced, ‘I am a triathlete!’ from the finish line of the London triathlon, wearing the Momentum trisuit that I designed. I was as proud as she was, I think, not only because she was wearing my trisuit (and looking great in it!) but because she is also an athlete that I coach, so I like to think that I helped to get her to that finish line in more ways than one.
As a designer, I come from a background ranging from active to high-end womenswear, so I like to incorporate stylish details, exciting new colours, and flattering fits and details to the triathlon kit that I design. As a triathlete, I love working with the high-quality fabric and details that go into all of our trisuits. It really is exciting to know that women will compete feeling more confident and more comfortable in a trisuit that I helped to create! And as a coach, I can recommend Trigirl to my female athletes, because I know that Trigirl really does dry quickly, fit perfectly, and offers the best female cycling pad available, so my athletes will finish at their best. Of course, I wear Trigirl myself!
I don’t know how many designer/triathlete/coaches there are out there, but I feel like it’s this fairly unique combination that helps me to understand the Trigirl customer. I know what it’s like to wear an uncomfortable trisuit (yuck). I know how much it matters to feel confident on race day and that flattering kit is confidence-inspiring (yay!) I also know that it’s really fun to see a triumphant triathlete wearing my design, because I know how amazing it feels to cross the finish line – and I love to think that I played a little part in that.
