Our Gear of the Year awards celebrate the finest triathlon gear we’ve tested over 2013. While some old favourites still shine though, innovative new tech has also come to the fore over the last 12 months, so we’ve rounded up the products that have made testing a genuine joy and we think will make you love swimming, cycling and running even more.

Sugoi RS

Then: When we pitted the Sugoi RS against the suits of other top brands this summer, we said it fit like a second skin, was supportive but unrestrictive and flexible in all three disciplines, with flatlock seams and wafer-thin, smooth fabric ensuring comfort. Uncompromising performance, and amazing value; a brilliant suit that excels in all three disciplines. Read the full Sugoi RS review here.

Now: The RS has proved itself a quality and hard-wearing tri suit with just the right padding to keep you comfy on the bike while the body-hugging fit makes it effortless in the water and aero on the bike.
