Description

Engineered comfort.

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. Think about that. What fabric performs equally across the board? Well, the answer came in the form of development, and from this, the 70D elastane, SBR Skin X fabric was born. We know, we're not fans of titles filled with seemingly arbitrary numbers and letters, either. So, let's make some sense of this fabric. Basically, the "70D" stands for 70 denier. 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 probably wondering how this is possible? Well, this material is constructed from a high-density, hydrophobic blend of polyamide and Lycra. This means that the material's composition is tightly bound and provides a next-to-skin fit. However, 2XU ensured that the flexibility wasn't to be a lost attribute. Instead, the fabric incorporates a four-way stretch system that allows a full range of movement, while retaining its targeted compressive qualities. Additionally, 2XU used a ten-panel, anatomic construction to further accentuate your comfort.

For the fit, the Active Tri shorts have been designed on an anatomical contour. This means that you'll find the shorts to be conforming to the body, as well as quite stretchable. This is due to the contoured seam placement. Essentially, this feature allows a full-range of flexible movement throughout the various, complex articulations of triathlon. The end result is a next-to-skin fit that's completely free from the risk of abrasion and chafing.

So, 2XU ensured that you'll be blazing into T1, but how do the Tri shorts hold up from there? Of course, one of the most pressing issues is riding or running with a wet, bulky chamois -- our bodies cringe merely thinking about it. The approach to alleviating this concern was twofold. First, the chamois has to be substantial enough for support in the saddle, yet it can't be so sizable as to inhibit your swim or run. Secondly, the insert has to remain dry over all three disciplines. Basically, 2XU set out to create the Holy Grail of triathlon chamois, and it did with the exclusive SBR Fleece insert. This chamois uses a variable density design that provides targeted support to pressured nerves, while remaining unnoticeable on foot and in the water. Additionally, 2XU constructed the fleece from a micro-filament polyester yarn with hydrophobic properties. So, neither water or perspiration will bog down the dryness of the fleece.

The 2XU Active Women's Tri Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Black/black, Black/neon red, Nautica Blue/nautica blue.
