Let’s be honest: there’s no shortage of flowery, girly triathlon apparel out there. Even if you typically prefer to blend in with the guys (this editor included), your acceptable opportunity to go pink overboard is Valentine’s Day. Go girl it up with one of these products.

Pearl Izumi W’s Select Gel Glove, $30

These gloves are cushioned enough for long rides, with a meshy back for good ventilation.

De Soto Carrera Full Tri Top, $68

Thankfully this De Soto top isn’t one of those “hey, here’s my exposed belly” tri shirts—it’s actually long enough to reach your hips. Plus it’s supportive without being too snug.
