Cervelo Tops Bike Count in Ironman Philippines

Transition manager Lester Chuayap,  Ricky Ledesma and their team commissioned the first ever equipment and gear count in the inaugural Ironman Philippines held in the first week of June.

Toronto-based Cervelo once again showed who is the industry leader in triathlon bikes on Ironman triathlon participation, lording it over the bike count field, with 226 bikes.   Specialized is second at 141, and Canadian brand Argon18 is third at 102.   Cervelo was also the bike count winner in the 2017 Kona Ironman World championships in Hawaii.

There are 68 Brands in the field, with 17 bikes categorized as unknown.

In the wheel category, Zipp also mirrored the Kona count, winning with 256 wheels.   HED though was 2nd with 96, followed by Mavic at 69.  ENVE, which was 2nd in Kona, followed closely at 67.

In the components/drivetrain count, Shimano was the overwhelming choice with 895 or 86% of the total count, with American brand SRAM coming in second at 123.   Third was Campagnolo with 17.

A summary of the preferred brands for other equipment:  ISM (saddle) at 430; Profile Design for aerobar (410); and Garmin as the power meter leader at 73.
