Ready for the Long-Distance Race?
Vätternrundan is a real a real challenge, but with the right gadgets can avoid Vätternrundan is 300 km torment. So what should you invest in? In this guide, you can read about what clothes and equipment viktigst. Read also what to consider when choosing cycle.
-If you have limited budget so I would never skimp on the pants, said David Karlsson, workshop manager at XXL Sport & Wildlife in Linköping.
Bicycle and helmet is a must to get set up. However, it requires a little more for it to be fairly enjoyable to get around the whole Vätternrundan.
Of course you can invest thousands in all sorts of gadgets, but even if you do not want to spend a fortune, there are a few things you should keep to.
-A multi-tools, spare tube, pump, water bottle, cycling shorts, cycling shoes, gloves, goggles energy bar or gel would say is the foundation. There are things you should have in order to survive, says David Karlsson.
Stinginess deceives wisdom
For those who have higher ambitions than simply getting around the lake, it is investing a lot of money in expensive accessories. All XXL department has a specialized bike section with associated workshop, where you can get guidance in his gadget-hunting. In XXL`s department is working around the 80 vendors who all trained twice a year. The focus during the training, knowledge of new products on the market and also testing them. Säljarstaben consists of both racing cyclists bike geeks in general, there is no doubt that the sellers of XXL to their bikes – commitment and dedication is everything.
According to David it is about to find its price level, this is because the adage “you get what you pay for” a truth in cycling.
-If we look at clothes as, for example, the pants better fit and material mix when they come up in price. There are simpler unisex models, but I would certainly recommend a gender-specific model with good aeration. Should you sit on a saddle for twelve hours, this is money well invested. Is it that you have limited budget so I would never skimp on the trousers-then one can instead take a simple sweater, says David Karlsson.
Besides a good bike pants are also shoes and pedals something you should put extra effort into. And even where you should be extremely careful in the choice. According to David Karlsson should firstly select an SPD-L pedal-it is developed specifically for road riding and provide good support for the foot.
-When it comes to shoes, it is important to consider that the heel fits well. The shoes have to sit tight and must not loose. I get the feeling that many people would buy a little too big.
Other clothes that David recommends that you should have with a windproof jacket you can take off the sleeves on. Along with a jersey is enough to withstand most weather conditions that may prevail during the race. Even glasses with interchangeable lenses can be a good investment.
-Being able to have different lenses is important. You do not want to have dark lenses at night – at the same time would perhaps not have clear glass in the day. It’s easy to get a headache if you do not have sollins – and makes really good glasses.
Cycling water bottle is perhaps a bit more premium, but according to Waterbottlesshop, water bottle is a smart accessory for those who want to develop as a cyclist.
-A bike computer is smart to have, especially when you are training for a race. Then you can measure the cadence example when training. It is a good tool for those who want to increase their capacity.
As for other hardware is a multi-tool, tools to remove the tires, extra-long, two-bottle rack, pump and a saddle bag things that should be on every Vätterncyklists checklist.
-Remember to buy a pump that can handle right pressure. It should be clear at least ten bar because the pressure will be on eight tires. Alternatively, you can buy a pump with kolsyrepatron-which pumps up when you press a button.
Remember to have thoroughly with lights and reflectors on your bike if you ride at night. The mandatory bicycle lights for all riders starting in the evening and night.
