TriRig is incredibly proud to announce that Ironman champ Matt Russell is on board as a TriRig athlete for 2019. The Sarasota, Florida resident has been a fan and customer of TriRig for several years, riding our Omega X brakes whenever his bikes were compatible. Matt has an incredible history, including going 8:04:45 at last year's Ironman World Championships, a time that would have won the race in seven of the last ten years.
This season, he's upgrading to a full-blown Omni bike, complete with Alpha One bars, Gamma extensions, Omega brakes, Beta rear carrier and Kappa bottle cages. In short, he's now a TriRig athlete through-and-through. Oh, and the keen observer will notice that Matt is riding with the first production unit of our upcoming Universal Cover, which hides the front brake, and the Monopost, for the cleanest possible front end. We are still finishing our production tooling, but we do expect the cover to be available for the 2019 season.
