He might be one of the few professional triathletes out there still riding with rim brakes. Although it took a while for athletes to finally accept this “innovation” and to shift towards disc brakes, by now most of the field enjoys the direct and quick – therefor safer – braking with disc brakes. Iden still enjoys his old-school rim brakes, though. On Instagram, he cut the grass from under one’s feet as he refers to his rim-brakes in the caption under a close-up photo of his bike.
