Let's face it, your standard cycling fare doesn't cut it within the realm of triathlon. In fact, our body cringes at the mere thought of running or riding with a bulky, wet chamois. And when you sprinkle in the different requirements in cut and fabric dynamics, it becomes obvious why most cycling apparel makers fail at triathlon-specific clothing, and why 2XU reigns supreme. To illustrate this point, we present the 2XU Compression Women's Tri Shorts. With true compression technology, an anatomic cut, and an unparalleled level of comfort, the Compression Tri Shorts are the obvious choice for race day. 2XU constructed the main body from its 70D/CK fabric.

What's a denier Simply put, a denier is a unit of measure for the weight of a fabric. Technically speaking, it measures a fabric's grams-per-9000-meters. And while a typical recovery compression piece features a material choice around 200 deniers and up, the Tri Shorts use a lighter, less constricting 70 denier fabric. This means that you still receive a focused, graduated compression, but the most direct gains are made through limiting muscle oscillation. So, whether you're getting slapped by wakes, getting rattled in the saddle, or pummeled by your pounding on the pavement, the 70D/CK fabric provides an enhanced level of muscle support that will minimize fatigue. And on the subject of fatigue, we'll jump into the main draw of the Tri shorts, their compressive qualities. You hear the term 'compression' thrown out there often. However, its true meaning, especially for race-day applications, is typically shrouded in ubiquity. So, forget what you've heard about lactic acid suppression, and enter into the world of enhanced blood circulation. Without getting too scientific, 2XU designed the Tri shorts to have different strengths of compre...
