Dave’s Gear

I’ve assembled a group of partners that produce what I believe to be the best-in-class products in each of their respective categories.  These brands – and the people behind them – are incredibly generous and supportive of my mission to make you a faster triathlete.

The Four Seasons Resort Hualalai is consistently ranked among the top resorts in the world.  It also happens to be home to my exclusive Dave Scott Triathlon Experience training camps.  If you’re committed to getting faster – while spending less time working out – then you owe it to yourself to attend one of these amazing weeks of triathlon.  My camps are designed for athletes of all abilities and fitness levels.  It doesn’t matter how fast you are now, I’ll make you faster… I guarantee it!

It’s no surprise that HOKA ONE ONE is the fastest growing running shoe in triathlon and number 1 on the Queen K.  The brand bucked the minimalist trend and introduced a complete line of well-cushioned, incredibly stable but lightweight shoes. My favorite models include the Clifton for most of my road training, the Challenger ATR 3 for trails, and the award-winning Clayton for track workouts and racing.  HOKA is so sure that you’ll love them that they offer a 30-day no questions asked trial period.  Take them for a spin… you’ll never look back!

I’ve used Bioastin Hawaiian Astaxanthin for years before I ever started working with the company.  Astaxanthin, one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, is among my top 5 most important nutritional supplements. I especially appreciate the added protection it provides my skin from the sun.  Coincidentally it’s manufactured in the Natural Energy Lab, right on the Kona run course.

I’m glad to partner with Playtri, one of the largest tri shops in the US that has a great selection, flush inventory, and professional customer service. With more than 20 locations throughout the US (PlayTri / Endurance House) and the official gear retailer of Ironman, Playtri thinks, speaks, and empowers the multisport lifestyle each and every day. Here at the Dave Scott Triathlon Club, we have a special relationship with Playtri that allows us to offer our clients great discounts. For example, Playtri is the largest Argon18 dealer in America and can customize these great bikes anyway you see fit (although I highly recommend the Shimano electronic components and Enve wheels as the ultimate setup). You can catch me riding my Argon18 bike in Boulder or at our Dave Scott Experience Triathlon Camps at the Four Seasons Hualalai, located on the Ironman Course.

As a consultant, teacher and coach, and I’m extremely happy to be involved with SFuels and their Go Longer Program. SFuels has developed nutritional products based on a Low Carb – High ‘healthy fat’ intake. This optimal eating and fueling plan is key for slowing the aging curve and improving performance. Come join me!

My partners at HUUB make the fastest and most innovative wetsuits and swimskins in the world, and they also manufacture my exclusive line of Dave Scott Performance Clothing.  This racing apparel includes coldblack® fabric technology, a chamois perfectly positioned for your aero bike, and many other design features that I’ve always wanted to see in a race kit.  There are many configurations and colors to choose from, so I’m sure that you’ll find one ideally suited for your next event.

Improving your swimming is all about mastering technique, and FINIS helps triathletes by providing a wide range of innovative training tools. My swim groups use the Agility paddles and Freestyler paddles (yes, I recommend using both); and the Edge fins and the Long Floating fins to build kicking efficiency and power. Integrate these tools into every workout and watch your swimming fundamentals improve! Best of all you can go to my personal FINIS webpage and immediately get 20% off of your next purchase!

Simply put, these are the fastest wheels I’ve ever ridden.  For daily training I love the ENVE SES 3.4 Carbon rims.  They feel faster and lighter than the wheels I used to race on!  On the rare occasions when I do race – or want to post a fast marker set – you’ll find the incredibly aero ENVE SES 7.8 Carbon wheels on my bike.  Wow! These babies cut through the wind like nothing else; there’s no other wheel that I’d rather ride through the lava fields of the Big Island.

I’ve very proud to be a Master Coach at Ironman U™, where I contribute to curricula that helps elevate the coaching and teaching abilities of triathlon coaches worldwide.  If you want the best from your coach, have him or her become a certified member of the IRONMAN Coaches Association.
