SLEEVED TRISUITS

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - SWIM BIKE RUN TRANSITION -

There’s been a trend among pro long-dis­tance triath­letes over the last few years towards sleeved trisuits and age group ath­letes are fol­low­ing suit. The ad­van­tage of go­ing with a sleeved suit is that you get en­hanced aero­dy­nam­ics on the bike along with some ex­tra sun pro­tec­tion that will help both while bik­ing and run­ning. We re­viewed some of the lat­est short-sleeved suits and were im­pressed with just how com­fort­able and fast they are. While they’re de­signed for rac­ing, you won’t go wrong putting in some train­ing miles in th­ese suits, too – es­pe­cially on the bike. 2XU

2XU Com­pres­sion Full Zip Sleeved Trisuit

$200 The grad­u­ated com­pres­sion used in 2XU’S Full Zip suit is de­signed to in­crease cir­cu­la­tion and bring more oxy­gen to mus­cle tis­sues. The com­pres­sion ma­te­rial also sta­bi­lizes key mus­cles to im­prove per­for­mance and re­duce the chance of in­jury. The suit uses 2XU’S pro­pri­etary 105D fab­ric to re­duce fa­tigue and mus­cle os­cil­la­tion, which im­proves power out­put. There’s also spe­cial fab­ric cool­ing built into the fab­ric that re­flects UV rays and cools the skin in hot con­di­tions. Of course, the ques­tion you re­ally want to ask – what about the chamois? A Mem­ory Tech LD chamois uses multi-layer foam tech­nol­ogy for just the right amount of cush­ion­ing for even the long­est rides, but still won’t bother you on the run.
