Triathlon & MultiSports
Triathlons, duathlons and other multisport events are tough in every aspect. Event organizers as well as timekeepers have to perfectly manage different classes and distances as well as transition areas. And next to that for triathletes flawless timing is one of the main requirements.
Timekeeping at triathlons and multisports events is a huge challenge.
When dealing with triathlons, transition areas are points of interest that need extra attention. Transition areas are perfect places to set up an intermediate timing point (or even two, which enables athletes to see how quick they switch between disciplines). It is advised that detection mats are not placed in tight turns to ensure maximum accuracy.
BibTag or ProChip
If you are timing a triathlon or multisports event the timing system setup that would be best for you is depending on the size and professionality of event. For events with many participants, the BibTag system in combination with the MultiSports Tag is well suited. For events in which professional athletes participate (such as IRONMAN triathlons), the ProChip system is recommended.
BibTag for mass event
For events with many participants, the BibTag system in combination with the MultiSports Tag is well suited. This system can easily handle thousands of competitors and minimizes handling. The tag is well suited for use at triathlons as it meets everyone’s requirements. There are disposable and non-disposable tags available and they are all waterproof.
ProChip for high speed races
For events in which professional athletes participate (such as IRONMAN triathlons), the ProChip system is recommended because of its high accuracy and ability to handle high speeds. The chips are waterproof and are worn by the athletes on a comfortable ankle strap. The strap with the chip attached can be worn underneath any wetsuit.
