Who would argue with free speed Not us, and probably not you, either. This is why a calculated gear selection needs to extend beyond the hard goods and into areas less obvious. Yes, we're referring to your clothes. And whether you're looking to gain time in the water or on the land, the 2XU Active Women's Tri Shorts will assist you on your quest. 2XU approached the Active Tri Shorts with a deliberately even focus across all three disciplines of triathlon.

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 lightly 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 SBR Skin X fabric provides an enhanced level of muscle support that will minimize fatigue. And while this design feature complements all of the triathlon disciplines, Skin X still includes technical aspects to increase efficiency in the water and on the land. Starting with the water aspects, Skin X possesses hydrophobic properties. If your Latin is a little rusty, this means that the material is capable of repelling water during the swim. In fact, the fabric minimizes water retention, which also translates to an a reduction in hydrodynamic and accelerate drag. But, you're prob...
