Rudy Project Transition 46 Bag Named 'Best in Class' by Triathlete Magazine


Denver, CO- Triathlete Magazine, the world’s #1 triathlon publication, has named the Rudy Project Transition 46 as the ‘Best in Class’ transition bag. This versatile racing and training bag has been featured in the 2015 Buyer’s Guide, which hit stands recently. 

“Rudy Project has thought of everything for this durable 46-liter capacity bag,” noted editor Bethany Leach Mavis in her article. “In addition to pockets for a wetsuit, shoes and sunglasses (plus another dozen zippered pockets) and a transition list printed inside, it also has a harness to strap your helmet on the outside of the bag and three drawstring bags for transition and post-race apparel.”


“Our engineering team took their design and triathlon expertise in technical performance in helmets, sunglasses and sports prescription frames, and applied that same passion, science and zeal to this new bag line,” said Paul Craig, President and Co-Founder of Rudy Project North America. “Naturally, we’re thrilled to be honored with this award and believe it validates all the hard work that we’ve put forth to create the best Tri Bag on the planet. The Transition 46 bag is everything you’d expect from Rudy Project. Pure, brilliant Italian design with quality materials to match our quality craftsmanship.”

Perfect for any race day, Transition 46 is one of four bags in Rudy Project’s new 2015 Sport Bag and Pack Collection. This all-in-one bag is available in two slick colors (Black/Red and Black/White), and can be changed from duffel to backpack with the switch of a strap. Equipped with 270 degrees of broad storage access, the Transition 46 contains a hidden helmet holder with adjustable straps, a padded protective eyewear pocket, and a ventilated shoe compartment. This triathlete toolbox also includes a waterproof bottom ideal for wetsuit storage, and three additional drawstring bags labeled for swimming, biking, and post-race apparel. Most importantly, the front pocket features a transparent ID window and race day checklist, so you’ll never leave gear at home again.

Also noted in this special issue of Triathlete Magazine was the Rudy Project Wingspan Aero / TT helmet, which was previously awarded ‘Best Aero Helmet’ by the publication. “Aero expert John Cobb was integral in the development of the Wingspan, which has a streamlined design with a short tail,” said Triathlete Magazine. “It covers your ears, but still feels breathable and is super light (around 290 grams).”


The Rudy Project Wingspan and the new Wing57 Aero / TT helmets have both become must-have items for triathletes looking to save watts, and have enabled Rudy Project to win the title of ‘#1 most worn Aero / TT Helmet’ of the IRONMAN® World Championships in Kona, Hawaii for the last 4 consecutive years. Each features the RSR7 retention system for single-handed on-the-fly adjustment, and are exceptionally lightweight and well ventilated without sacrificing style.

The Transition 46 and Wingspan are available online at or from any authorized dealer.
