2014 Kona Bike Count Results

by Brad Culp – Lava Magazine

 

As over 2,000 of the world’s top Ironman athletes checked their bikes at Kailua Pier, dozens of tri industry players tallied bikes and components for the annual litmus test of buying trends. The annual count gives the triathlon industry a scope of what the sport’s best athletes are buying and an idea of who will be the major players for the next few years.

After over five hours of counting, Cervelo once again dominated the count, but others are closing the gap.
