STAC Performance partners with the MultiSport Canada 2017 Triathlon Series

BARRIE, ONTARIO (February 28, 2017) – MultiSport Canada (MSC) is excited to announce a partnership with STAC Performance for the 2017 triathlon season. STAC Performance is the perfect training partner for the avid triathlete.  Initially funded through Kickstarter, the STAC Zero bike trainer is designed to be completely silent and easy on your tires.

Instead of using a flywheel and roller to push up against your back wheel or a direct drive system, the STAC Zero uses magnets to create resistance. Two neodymium magnets are placed either side the rim — which needs to be alloy — and as the wheel spins they create resistance.

“STAC Performance, creator of the STAC Zero silent trainer, is proud to join the Skechers Triathlon Series as a sports technology sponsor”, said STAC Performance CEO Andrew Buckrell. “STAC is looking forward to working with MSC to develop new training and racing technologies to help racers of all levels.”

STAC Performance will be onsite at all Skechers MSC races this summer. The year’s race series will take place on the following dates: June 24/25 (Rose City), July 15/16 (Gravenhurst), August 6 (Kingston), August 12/13 (Bracebridge), August 19/20 (Toronto Island), August 26 (Wasaga Beach) and September 9/10 (Lakeside).
