Who’s That Man … In Mr Turk

It’s a bird. It’s a Plane… no, it’s Mauro Cavanha, International Triathlon Superstar. Mauro is currently training to compete in The ITU World Cup in Columbia. His goal is to make the Brazilian Olympic Team and compete in his home country in the upcoming Summer Olympics.

In the world of triathlons there’s a lot of talk about “transitions,” getting out of your wetsuit into your bike gear, and from bike ensemble to running look. There are more outfit changes than a Lady Gaga concert. I thought I’d test Mauro on his transition from Mr Turk tailored suit to Mr Turk swimsuit. He’s going to have to work on his speed but his form was perfect.

Good luck Mauro!

As you may have noticed, our SASTAN Jersey and Soft Shell A/M Shorts are a bit more than your average trail kit. Perhaps your reaction to the pricing even compelled you to wax poetic about it on your favorite social media channel, and that’s fine, we don’t blame you. Can’t say we didn’t see it coming. Still, if we could impart the one thing that we feel most strongly about, it’s that Kitsbow is not merely expensive for the sake of being expensive. We love mountain biking, and could certainly express that love by offering another price-conscious jersey or short made overseas from standard-issue materials and processes. However, we believe this to be an avenue with few stones left unturned.
