JackRabbit’s new ownership is bad news for New York’s triathletes


Jack Rabbit Sports UWS

JackRabbit Sports has been the specialty store of choice for New York City’s triathletes (and serious runners) for years, but that era may be coming to an end.

According to the New York Times, since the Running Specialty Group (RSG) acquired the company in March 2015, swim and bike apparel has been disappearing from the shelves as the stores switch their focus to running only.

“It was surprising to hear that they were phasing out their triathlon products,” Empire Tri Club co-founder Alison Kreideweis told the Times. “They’re a go-to store for triathletes in the city.”

The change leaves NYC’s tri community with just two specialty stores—Paragon Sports in Union Square and R&A Cycles in Park Slope—to rely on. Otherwise, they’ll have to order their wet suits online. Which, as you can imagine, could prove difficult in terms of finding the perfect fit.—Emily Karr
