Ready to splash out on some cycling gear? Let’s take a look at the Tour de France 2021 gear used by the pros you can actually buy for yourself.

Wahoo Elemnt BOLT bike computer

The Wahoo Elemnt Bolt is sitting at the top of T3’s best bike computer guide, no wonder all the pros use this reliable device for their training. Bora Hansgrohe team members in particular prefer Wahoo computers. The new Wahoo Bolt features a 64-colour display, ambient light sensor, watertight body and automatic rerouting, all in a compact yet resilient body.

When It Comes to SoulCycle At-Home Bike vs. Peloton, It's All About Preference and Cost

  When It Comes to SoulCycle At-Home Bike vs. Peloton, It's All About Preference and Cost Both indoor cycling bikes offer great workouts, but there are some key differences between these two competing products.Over the past year, the global pandemic forced many of us to embrace home workouts. And rather than ditching them to return to the gym, you might be looking to upgrade your home set-up to include a top-of-the-line indoor bike like a Peloton or SoulCycle bike so you can keep spinning and sweating in the comfort of your own home. If so, you’re not alone.

Supersapiens Energy Management System

The Supersapiens energy management system is an interesting concept that can help you ‘fuel’ almost with minute precision throughout the day. Although it’s been ruled out for use in the Tour de France competition, many teams, including Jumbo-Visma, uses the Abbott Libre Sensor Glucose Sport Biosensor-powered Supersapiens to get their riders ready for the Tour.

Essentially, after applying the semi-permanent biosensors on your skin, it feeds data back into the Supersapines app where you can see your blood glucose levels real time. This is a game changer in terms of staying on top of your energy needs all throughout the day but especially during racing. The tech doesn’t come cheap though: see the pricing options at Supersapiens.

Specialized Tarmac SL7

Another T3 No.1, we think the Specialized Tarmac SL7 is the best road bike. It also won a T3 Award recently, which is way more prestigious than a mere yellow jersey. As we said in our Specialized Tarmac SL7 review, “If you’re a rider who likes speed, efficiency and precise handling, the newly redesigned Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7 offers race-proven performance and aerodynamic design.” Need we say more? The bike is used by QuickStep on TdF 2021.

This eighth edition will leave the square, next year, to the Tour de France women (eight steps from July 24, 2022), back after a first experience between 1984 and 1989.

Wahoo KICKR Smart Trainer

Team INEOS riders mount their bikes on Wahoo KICKR v5 turbo trainers when they aren’t out on the road. The recently updated KICKR v5 offers a more realistic ride and increased precision without spin down. This amazing turbo trainer also features the new AXIS feet that  allow a bike installed onto the trainer to smoothly tilt up to 5 degrees from side-to-side with each pedal stroke, creating a more realistic ride feel.

Specialized S-Works Evade w/ ANGI

Best cycling helmet, anyone? The Specialized S-Works Evade w/ANGI is used by the Bora-Hansgrohe team to protect the noggins of its riders. Not surprisingly, it’s the same team that uses the BOLT computers as the it’s compatible with ANGI, Specialized’s patented helmet-mounted sensor, that measures the forces transmitted to a helmet during a crash. Let no crash happen to you but even if it does, you can rest assured that your head is well protected. And you can enjoy the great aerodynamic properties of the S-Works Evade as long as you’re on the bike.
