Peter Eischeidwrote a review of TYR Carbon 9in Tri Shorts - Men's on August 28, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought these to go with the matching top http://www.competitivecyclist.com/tyr-carbon-tri-tank-top-with-zipper-mens#wall-solicitations for my first half ironman and they worked great. I loved how fast they dried on the bike and I didn't even notice them under my wetsuit during the swim. I was a little worried at how snug the band was around my thigh but once the workout/race started it's exactly what I needed so they fit as they were intended. As with all tri shorts the pad is thiner than a normal bike short, but just enough to get you through the bike leg without much discomfort.
