Up to 70% off your triathlon kit with SportPursuit.
It is widely known that triathlon, as a sport, is an expensive one. As triathletes we love our kit and are famous for spending hours analyzing websites, kit reviews, forums, shops and blogs, searching for the best items available to us. We invest huge amounts of money into our sport with the hope that we can shave off a few seconds from our time and finish slightly more comfortably than we would have done otherwise.
So how good would it be if there was a place you could pick up your kit at a hugely reduced price, saving as much as 70% on many items?
Sport Pursuit (www.sportpursuit.co.uk) have recently launched as the UK’s first sport flash-sales website, combining top sports brands and fantastic prices in a seven day flash-sale. A ‘flash-sale’ is a highly discounted time limited offer on a specific brand, meaning that the price reductions are significant but you need to get in quick to guarantee your bargain. Working with over 120 high profile brands, Sportpursuit are able to sort out the best deals to provide us, the athletes, with a highly reduced and yet fantastic quality product.
So where did the idea for such an innovative website come from?
Adam Pikett, CEO of SportPursuit said, ‘As keen sportspeople ourselves we were able to recognise that there is a real space in the market for a site like ours. The sports industry in the UK is worth in excess of £8bn and we know how much athletes, especially triathletes, love their technical, high end sports gear’ He continues ‘Since launching in August 2011 we have teamed up with some fantastic brands that are regarded highly in the triathlon market, including Blue Seventy, 2XU, Orca, High Five, Inov8 and Sugoi amongst many others. With each of these great brands we offered our members unbeatable prices on an selected range of top kit during one of our week long sales.’
Sportpursuit is designed to appeal to all levels of athlete, from those just starting out in the sport to those competing to a very high level. Because the kit is of such a high quality and low price, it is opening up triathlon to everyone
Adam confirms this when he says, ‘Sportpursuit is enjoyed by athletes who are either looking to either purchase more of their favourite brands but who can’t necessarily justify the cost or those who are looking to discover and trial new brands without the full price tag, who then go on to become regular purchasers. This means our customer is shopping us for very different reasons than when they go to their favourite tri store today.’
