Description

Best of the best.

If you need the absolute best that a powerhouse like 2XU has to offer, its new TR Compression Bib Shorts are what you've been looking for. We'll let the features speak for themselves.

2XU constructed the main body from its 105D/CK fabric. 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 '105D' stands for 105 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 bib shorts use a lighter, less constricting 105 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 105D/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 bib 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 bib shorts to have different strengths of compression in accordance to a position's distance from the heart. So, the further from the heart, the stronger the fabric compression, and the closer to the heart, the lower the compression. Basically, this design places a pressure on the veins and arteries that forces the circulatory system to work faster. Accordingly, your muscles receive more oxygen, and thus muscle fatigue is thoroughly reduced, while power outputs and thresholds are increased.

Not surprisingly, while the aforementioned attributes would be enough for most to call it a day with, 2XU was just getting started. For the actual fit of the bib shorts, 2XU approached the cut with an anatomic, multi-paneled, and contoured designed. This means that the panels are meant to support specific muscle groups, while the shape perfectly conforms to the male body throughout the various motions of a cycling. Additionally, 2XU placed an engineering focus on limiting the detrimental fatigue caused by the heat of the sun. What it came up with is its ICE X fabric. This material is capable of reducing body temperatures by around five degrees Fahrenheit, while maintaining a dark color. This is due to the fabrics use of Xylitol, yes the stuff in your minty gum, and IR blocking. So, in difficult conditions, your core temperature will remain cooler, and your perspiration will quickly evaporate.

At the chamois, the top-tier characteristics of the Sublimated bib shorts continue with the use of 2XU's TR insert. Utilizing a variable density support pattern, the TR focuses support where your body needs it, not where it doesn't. Accordingly, chafing is reduced, while pressure is evenly distributed away from the nerves. In fact, you'll find that the chamois density is graduated from 120 at the rear to 40 at the nose. And while pressure is sorted through this design, abrasion is further dealt with through the insert's membrane technology. This system not only provides a soft interface between your body and the chamois, but it also regulates moisture buildup and evaporation.

The 2XU TR Compression Bib Shorts are available in the color Black/black and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large.

Size too small

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

All my bib shorts are XXL, so I was surprised when I received this item and the straps were really pressing down on my shoulders. the lower body felt just fine, but the discomfort at my shoulders will cause me to return this item.
