About Elite Bicycles:

During his four-year professional triathlon career, Elite owner David Greenfield felt top-level cyclists needed a viable alternative to the mass produced, off-the-peg frame sizes and tubing offered by the major bicycle companies. He challenged himself to build affordable bicycles with custom sizes using the absolute highest grade aluminum tubing at prices competitive to standardized bikes being sold to top-level athletes in both the pro and amateur ranks.

Thousands of miles ridden on ill-fitting bikes with substandard frame materials led him to realize exactly what design and materials worked best, both for comfort and performance. Elite was formed to take advantage of the industry-wide technology boom which allowed smaller builders to compete with larger companies without being at a technological disadvantage. As a result, Elite now buys the highest quality tubing, uses the top welders and paint houses in the industry, and employs the absolute best design characteristics, all while offering customized tubing options and paint finishes at prices competitive with larger bike manufacturers.

Crafted in the USA from American-made parts, Elite uses Easton Ultra-Light and Easton Scandium tubing, as well as U.S. made Edge Composites carbon — the highest rated lightweight aluminum in the world. Each frame’s airfoil design is also wind-tunnel tested to ensure optimal performance. Complete bike packages are built using only the highest quality components. In addition to building custom fit bikes for athletes looking for an edge, a full range of standard-sized frames featuring the same design elements are also available at dealers worldwide,

Elite riders share a common bond of appreciation for their bikes, and Elite prides itself on maintaining close relationships with its growing family of riders. Elite actively seeks feedback from its customers and is excited by and shares in each individual’s personal accomplishments — often as they happen, as the crew is present to support the athletes at many of the important races around the world.

Elite is proud to be the bike of choice for many professional athletes, including ITU World Cup Champions, Ironman Champions, top ten Olympians, and Duathlon World Champions. Each of our athletes ride Elite bicycles not because they are paid to (Elite does not provide free equipment), but because they believe Elite gives them a critical edge they need to win.

By bringing together top frame designs, materials, welders, painters, and components, Elite builds bicycles that deliver maximum performance and value for every customer — from professional athlete to weekend warrior.

All participants will be given a tattoo race number. Please be sure to have your race numbers on your body BEFORE coming to transition on race morning.

You will not be permitted in the transition area on race day without your wristband, swim cap and timing chip. If you have misplaced any of these items, please see the transition area director for a replacement.

Race Tattoos

We want you to look good while racing with Rev3. You will notice in your packet that you have been issued a tattoo for race day. Make sure you apply these to your arms and calf BEFORE race morning. There will be no body marking on race morning.

The application process is a simple procedure. You should have been given two tattoos with your athlete number. These numbers will go on your upper arm between your shoulder and elbow. Place one number on your right arm and one number on your left arm.

You were also instructed to get your age. These tattoos will go on your right calf. Make sure you place your age vertical on your right calf. Your designated letter will go below your age.

To apply these tattoos make sure you remove the plastic coating first. Place the tattoo on your body and damped the back of the tattoo with a wet cloth. Hold the damp cloth on the tattoo for about 30 seconds. Then you should be good to go without having a strange write on you at 5am! To remove the tattoo try nail polish remover.

Bike Rental & Shipping

Can I rent a bike Costa Rica?

Yes!  We are currently working with a few bike rental companies and will release details shortly.  If you are interested in renting a bike for the Costa Rica race, please send an email to info@rev3tri.com.

Can I ship my bike to Costa Rica?

Shipping your bike to Costa Rica is not a viable option due to the very high shipping fees and unreliability of getting through customs.

What is the best way to get my bike to Costa Rica?

The most common way to get to an overseas destination race with your bike is to travel with it like another piece of luggage.  If you don’t have your own bike box, you may be able to borrow one from a friend, buy one, or rent one from your local bike shop.  Most local bike shops will also offer a service of packing your bike into a bike box for you.  There are also many videos on YouTube that explain how to do this yourself.  It typically only requires loosening just a few bolts and taking off your wheels.  Once secured in a bike box, you can check it as another piece of luggage.  Check with your airline carrier for fees.  Most of them charge $100 and sometimes you can get lucky and not get charged.

How do I get my bike from the airport to my hotel?

We will be posting information about helping you transport your bike cases (if you are not renting your own car…..keep in mind the size of the car you will need to rent if you plan on putting your luggage and bike box in a rental car).  We will set up a shuttle service from San Jose and Liberia airports (for a fee) to transport yourself and your bike to one of the race hotels.  If you are setting up your own travel arrangement, keep in mind the extra space needed for your bike.

Will there be anyone to help me assemble my bike?

Yes, bike mechanics will be on the race site starting the Thursday before the race to offer a complete service of unpacking, assembling, and checking the gears and components to ensure your bike is running smoothly.  There will be a $50 fee for this service.  Additionally, the mechanics will offer a complete service after your race of packing it back up in your bike box and ensuring that it is safe and protected in your box.  There will be a $50 fee for this service as well.

Bike Mechanics will be at the race site all weekend to offer additional services and bike parts as needed.  If you have special requests, please contact us well ahead of time.  Additionally, they will have CO2 cartridges, tubes, tires, and other basic bike needs for sale at the race site.

For 2012, Reynolds Cycling introduces our newest time trial champ, the super deep profile Eight One. The bad boy is a speed machine through and through. The heart and soul of the Eight One is Reynolds’ high modulus carbon and refined resin system, to balance speed with stiffness; strength with lightweight. The Eight One also includes Reynolds’ patented Swirl Lip Generator (SLG) for optimal aerodynamics and crosswind stability. The CTg brake track paired with Reynolds’ Cryo Blue brake pads provides world-class braking performance.

sixty six front profile grayLarge 251x300 Athletes


Sixty-Six is a versatile competitor that top professionals count on to pull them through every type of race situation: triathlons and time trials, fast crits, mountain stages–even windy circuit races. Sixty-Six incorporates Reynolds’ high modulus carbon and refined resin system. That makes them among the lightest on the market, yet still tough enough to command respect on the cobbles of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. And for 2011, the Sixty-Six includes our patented Swirl Lip Generator for even better aerodynamics and crosswind stability. Along with Our CTg brake track system, paired with our Cryo Blue brake pads vastly improves braking performance.
