What equipment did they use at Kona? This year's Ironman survey

Published November 12, 2013

KONA, Hawaii (BRAIN) — In the latest iteration of a long-time tradition, Lava Magazine once again did a bike survey at the world's most prestigious triathlon, held last month in Hawaii. Lava's Jay Prasuhn and Kirk Bausch spent five hours walking around the event to conduct the Lava Magazine 2013 GoPro Hawaii Ironman Bike Count

"There were few changes, the only big one being that ISM overtook Fizik as the top saddle on the pier," Prasuhn said.

Here's the data:
