National Triathlon Performance Centre Wales (NTPCW)

Since the start of 2019 I have been part of the Welsh Triathlon Performance Centre based out of Cardiff, Wales. The centre provides a professional and caring environment giving all athletes the chance to succeed and achieve results. It is fast establishing itself as one of the foremost British Triathlon supported centres in the UK.

Xhale is a training platform which I use to log my training and gather my data together in order to provide me with the information I need to improve as an athlete. Xhale works well with the most up-to-date GPS technology to gather training and racing data ready for you to dissect and analyse. But more importantly, Xhale is an organic platform that requires real feedback and emotions from you and—if you have one—your coach. It doesn’t rely solely on artificial intelligence based on pre-programmed algorithms. Training rarely occurs under the tight structure of lab conditions; Xhale supports you back in the world of real-life training.

Orca are one of world's leading wetsuit and swimwear manufacturers. I currently race in their 3:8 wetsuit which provides me with great buoyancy in the legs, for sure it is the fastest wetsuit I have used and I have swum in many other brands over the years. For the coming season I will also be racing in their Dream Kona Race Suit to give me the biggest aero advantage possible whilst out on the bike leg.

'Parcours was launched to make aerodynamics more accessible. We wanted to go out and buy an aero wheelset that would deliver tangible, proven benefits, but wouldn’t cost the earth. It didn’t exist. So we decided to make it.

 

Through extensive research and development, testing and use of some of the very best facilities and manufacturing partners in the world, along with UK based quality control and warranty protection, we have struck a winning combination.'

For the past two seasons of racing I have been riding a Parcours Passista / disc set up on my time trial bike, whilst for training out on my disc brake bike I have opted for the Grimpeur wheel set which is super light weight and fast!

NAUT is a UK made cycling brand focused on enhancing your riding performance, whilst striving for sustainability.

'All offcuts are currently recycled and we are investigating the use of recycled materials for our kit, having already achieved the UK manufacture and aero advantage we wanted, via collaboration with Nopinz.

We use ethically sourced organic cotton for our casual wear, which is produced in a solar powered factory on the Isle of Wight.

Each item of kit is handmade to order, enabling riders to choose their preferred fit and finish. We design the kit, you define your fit.'

The Swans story began in Osaka in 1911, a small lens manufacturer producing dust-proof and aviation goggles. More than a century has passed since then, and the Swans brand has become known for producing the highest quality swimming goggles that are used by swimmers of all abilities around the globe.

For racing in the open water I use the SRX Mirrored goggle and for the training and low light conditions I use the SRX Non-Mirrored goggle. Both are low profile and fit my face shape really well.

ONIT Cycles is a cycle shop in Porthcawl, South Wales, established in 2011. Their aim is to provide Porthcawl, Bridgend and South Wales with a bicycle shop that has a range of bikes including road bikes, triathlon bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid bikes and kids bikes, with great customer service and professional advice.

ONIT will be helping me keep my racing and training bikes in top condition so that I can have full confidence in my equipment come race day.
