2XU WOMEN'S TRIATHLON
The 2XU Women’s Comp Tri Top keeps you cool and comfortable when the temperature and the competition both heat up. 2XU combined quick-drying, durable, and form-fitting SBR Skin with the airflow-enhancing qualities of Sensor Mesh for maximum comfort. The top’s ergonomic design allows for maximum support and freedom of movement. A streamlined neckline and flatlocked seams keep you comfortable, even over long distances in and out of the water.
2XU approached the Comp Tri Top 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. The '70D' stands for 70 denier. 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 Trisuit uses 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 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 maintains specific advantages both on the land and in the water. 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 equal reduction in hydrodynamic and accelerate drag. Skin X 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.
In order to reduce irritation and chafing, 2XU built the Tri top with flatlock seams. This is especially important with triathlon, since you're in and out of the water, which can make skin extra sensitive. The streamlined neck design not only helps with aerodynamics, but it also alleviates pinching and binding during training. 2XU also used Sensor Mesh X panels to increase the already-efficient moisture management and force additional cooling air to flow through the top.
The 2XU Women's Tri Top is available in sizes XS to XL and comes in the color Black.
