Tri It Out


Image Map


Mid-way through the summer and the triathlon season is in full swing. Swim, bike, run… if you’re a gear head, this is the sport for you! We asked Lucy Danziger, Founder and CEO of Hintd (the website that lets you create your ultimate wish list that anyone can shop), an Ironman triathlete herself, for some of her favorite training and competition essentials. From Ironman to Olympic to sprint distance races, whether you’re an old pro or newbie to the sport, here are a few hot picks to get a little edge on the competition this summer! 

TOP ROW: SPECIALIZED ALIAS SPORT $2500. Combining performance with versatility, the Specialized Alias Sport is perfect for riders looking to get into triathlons who still want the design of a traditional road bike. The full-carbon frame combines tri-specific geometry with aerodynamic tube shaping, a zero-offset seatpost, and clip-on aerobars — eliminating the need for a both a race and training bike. The Alias Sport is made for triathletes who want one bike for every ride. GARMIN 920XT GPS WATCH $450. Offering a plethora of tri-sport tracking and data, along with everyday fitness monitoring, the Garmin 920XT is your ultimate swim, bike, and run companion. With a vivid color screen that boldly displays training metrics, this GPS watch is made for elite and amateur athletes alike. Wear it all day to monitor your steps, activity, and calories, and stay in touch with email, text and other smart notifications the watch displays.

ROW 2: GIRO SYNTHE MIPS HELMET $269.95. With the Synthe MIPS Helmet, Giro introduces the industry-leading Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) safety technology into its top-end helmet. Combining the best of aerodynamics and ventilation, this lightweight helmet slices through the air, keeping riders cool and comfortable with giant vents and Aero Mesh Panels — all in a stylish package. UNDER ARMOUR MID-CROSSBACK BRA $34.99. With a tight compression fit; smooth double-layer HeatGear® fabric; and signature Moisture Transport System, this sportbra will keep you cool, comfortable and supported throughout your training run and rides. Crossover straps with keyhole detail offer a bit of extra style too. ROKA MAVERICK X TRIATHLON WETSUIT $900. Though pricey, the new Maverick X from Roka is revolutionary in its design. By inverting the existing paradigm and starting with the arms up, this wetsuit is designed for total mobility throughout the stroke. Says Lucy Danziger, “It’s so thin and yet buoyant — like a skin more than a wetsuit. The sleeves don’t constrict at all so you feel fast and high in the water without the usual tight wetsuit feeling.” Says Roka, “It is the freest, fastest wetsuit ever built.”

Sporty Beach Reads: Summer 2016


Image Map


Hanging at the beach or chilling on the porch, there’s nothing like a good book to keep you company on a hot summer day… and a rainy one too. From literary masterpieces to trashy bestsellers, new releases to old classics, here are 9 of our favorite sporty beach books for Summer 2016. Baseball, football, surfing, climbing and more… even if you don’t like sports, we think you’ll still enjoy these timeless stories and compelling reads. 

BARBARIAN DAYS by William Finnegan (2015)

Surfing only looks like a sport. To initiates, it is something else: a beautiful addiction, a demanding course of study, a morally dangerous pastime, a way of life. Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Autobiography, Barbarian Days is William Finnegan’s memoir of an obsession. Says Sports Illustrated, “Reading this guy on the subject of waves and water is like reading Hemingway on bullfighting.” Raised in California and Hawaii, Finnegan started surfing as a child. He has chased waves all over the world, wandering for years through the South Pacific, Australia, Asia, and Africa. Barbarian Days is an old-school adventure story, an intellectual autobiography, a social history, and an extraordinary exploration of the gradual mastering of an exacting, little-understood art.

SHOE DOG by Phil Knight (2016)

In this candid and riveting memoir, for the first time ever, Nike founder and board chairman Phil Knight shares the inside story of the company’s early days as an intrepid start-up and its evolution into one of the world’s most iconic, game-changing, and profitable brands. The man behind the swoosh, has always been a mystery. Now, in a memoir that’s surprising, humble, unfiltered, funny, and beautifully crafted, he tells his story at last.


Nicknamed “Nails” for his hustle and grit, Lenny Dykstra approached the game of baseball — and life — with mythic intensity. During his decade in the majors as a center fielder for the legendary 1980s Mets and the 1990s Phillies, he was named to three All-Star teams and played in two of the most memorable World Series of the modern era. Tobacco-stained, steroid-powered, and booze-and-drug-fueled, “Nails” also defined a notorious era of excess in baseball. Funny, unflinchingly honest, and irresistibly readable, House of Nails makes no apologies and leaves nothing left unsaid.

Rob Pruitt x J.Crew



J.Crew has just launched a collection of 3 rash guards in collaboration with artist Rob Pruitt. Inspired by his Gradient Faces Series, 50% of the proceeds from these rash guard will be donated to the Skin Cancer Foundation in support of UV Safety month for July.

Rob Pruitt is a contemporary American conceptual artist whose work is notoriously eclectic, humorous, and ironic. Describing his own work, Pruitt has said his pieces are “basically blown-up versions of dining table craft projects.” A common thread in his work is multiplicity and he often creates serial paintings that share the same subject yet contain twists in composition. His Gradient Faces series is an example: scrawled line drawings of different facial expressions which are then transferred onto color gradients and flocked.

The Rob Pruitt for J.Crew collection is now available at J.Crew. Says Pruitt, “Seeing my art on a rash guard is like seeing my art on a human body as opposed to a canvas. I like how it changes from person to person.”

We like how it changes from surfer to surfer!
