Making the most of 2XU’s research into how to create the best-ever triathlon wear, the Compression Tri Shorts are about as supportive as it’s possible to get. The key to this is the creation and inclusion of 105D Power Mesh PWX fabric that focuses compression in key areas to stabilise muscles when you’re giving it everything, helping keep fatigue at bay and heighten body cooling. Across the upper leg muscles, the fabric is mapped to reduce soreness and chafing, and a perforated silicone gripper holds everything in place securely and comfortably. Down in the heart of the shorts, meanwhile, sits the legendary PRO LD Chamois which is multi-layered to support you as best as possible in all the right places. It’s been exclusively designed for 2XU and you can feel it with every step and kick: low-absorption foam protects without taking on water in the swim section, while also reducing bulkiness when cycling and running and keeping aerodynamics high. On top of all that, the Compression Tri Shorts also feature an easily accessible rear pocket system, keeping all your race day essentials within easy reach.
