Sunglasses that fold up into the palm of your hand?! That’s right, Rudy Project’s latest performance model does just that. Adam Hodges of Alp Fitness took at look at the Synform, and here’s what he had to say: http://bit.ly/1pbyEHo
Keep the Bugs Away with the Rudy Project Airstorm
“I was in such a hurry to put on my Rudy Project Airstorm that I only sort of noticed that it looked different from all the other dozen or so helmets I’ve owned. But once it’s on your head, cradling it like a newborn, you know what makes it different: the mesh.”
What’s so great about the Bug Stop padding in the Rudy Project Airstorm (among the many other awesome features of this helmet)? Trek Tech gives you the full rundown here: http://bit.ly/1MDxJLk

Piampiano Grabs 3rd Win at IM 70.3 New Orleans
What a special moment for me to be able to share the podium this last weekend at @ironmantri #IM703NOLA with one of my best friends, @purplepatchfitness teammate and training partner @scameto. Sarah has worked SO hard and truly re-defined her whole approach and attitude towards training and racing this year – I’ve never seen her so committed, training so well but most importantly ENJOYING this amazing journey as much as she is now. I was beyond excited for her to race at the level I see her at every day in training. This sport may be individual in many ways, but sharing in the ups and downs, victories and defeats with our teammates and those closest to us is also what makes the journey so special. HUGE congrats Sarah – I’m so proud of you! #triathlon #teammates #purplepatchfitness #friends #gogreen #sisu #believe #dontdreamitbeit

Leon Griffin Scores 2nd in
70.3 South American Championships
Racing the Sth American Champs in Brazil" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" /> has been a blast, but the finish line couldn’t come fast enough y’day@ #IM703Palmas. The Brazilian people are absolutely amazing and wonderfully hospitable and I can’t wait to come back down here to race again sometime soon. #Brazil #ironman #triathlon @trisportmag
A huge shout-out this week goes to Leon ‘Griffo’ Griffin after his impressive 2nd place finish at the IRONMAN 70.3 South American Championships in Brazil!
“It wasn’t just a tough field I faced, also brutally hot and humid conditions. My race played out perfectly, staying close to the front through the swim and making a break with eventual winner (for the third year in a row) Tim Don and the big German powerhouse Nils Fromhold. We formed an unassailable lead on the other threats to the title and by the time the conditions were really starting to bite midway through the run leg, even though I couldn’t hold Tim any longer, I’d built a big enough buffer to run it out as the runner up and soak up the amazing atmosphere the Brazilians create at their races.”

thank you @rudyprojectna for these awesome tralyx shades, they look great and fit perfectly with my rudy windmax helmet! the lenses provide great road contrast, rain or shine, and have not fogged on long slow mountain climbs. the frames do not block my peripheral vision or bounce around on my face. highly recommend these glasses, especially when pairing with a rudy helmet.

My journey is my own; I battle my own demons, and I celebrate my own victories. Triathlon may be an individual sport, but it’s all of you that make me feel like I have a team with me. Every person who tells me that I’ve inspired them, that I helped them get out there and start their own fitness journey….thank you. Because the truth is: you help me battle my demons, and you celebrate my victories with me; and when I say that this path is my own, I know that I have a team of wonderful people walking beside me. @bettydesigns @novemberprojectchi #ironmantri #triathlete #runchi #ltpendurance #endurance #whywetri #youcantriwithus #im703raleigh #doepicshit #badassisbeautiful #swimbikerun #rudyprojectna #rudyproject #hokaoneone #hokarunning #garmin #beatyesterday #trilife

I’ve worn glasses since 2nd grade. My vision sucks. Luckily the squad I started riding with has a Rudy Project sponsorship, so I can actually afford rx sunglasses for the first time ever. Total game changer @rudyprojectna thank you. If my eyes tear up on descents, it will be for joy not because my eyes are on fire from wearing contacts #RudyProject #cycling #NotBlindForOnce #rudyprojectna #RudyProjectSunglasses
