Our triathlon suits include chamois padding (micro fleece 85% polyester + 15% spandex) in the crotch for comfort during the ride, while not impeding swimming or running ability.

They are made from quick dry material which will ensure that you dry off as quickly as possible between the swim and the ride to prevent chafe.

Other benefits include:

  • Leg grippers so you don’t have to worry about the short legs riding up while you train or race
  • Reduced drag in the water to ensure you perform at your best and aren’t overworked in the early stages of the event reducing muscle oscillation upon ground contact increasing torque generated about joints
  • Reducing the risk of injury by enhancing recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate and improving subsequent exercise performance increasing feelings of positive leg sensations both during and following strenuous exercise

Our strategic flat-lock stitching means enhanced comfort and a great fit.
