The power of carbon compels you.

In recent years, we've come to realize that all things are improved with carbon, even apparel. Case in point is the TYR Carbon 6in Women's Tri Shorts. By integrating carbon into the fabric, TYR made the Carbon softer, cooler, and more breathable than standard triathlon gear.

It all comes down to three key components: moisture management, comfort, and stretch. The nylon fibers of the fabric lend themselves to the first two of these characteristics, as the material is lightweight and soft to the touch. Accordingly, it pulls moisture away from the skin to the quick-drying surface of the material. As a result, you not only benefit from a dry, protective layer, but your skin also remains dry and free from moisture-induced chafing. Meanwhile, the spandex provides four-way stretch, enabling complete freedom of movement. This engineered stretch nearly eliminates friction, bolstering the overall comfort and performance of the Carbon.

Because they could, TYR also included inserts along the side panels in order to increase stretch, ventilation, and moisture management. These panels have been constructed from a blend of nylon, polyester, Lycra, and carbon mesh. Carbon? Yup. Not only does it possess natural anti-static properties, but it is also a major combatant of moisture. Additionally, carbon is naturally antimicrobial, which means the fabric maintains consistent temperature regulation while keeping you dry, comfortable, and free from odor.

TYR cut the Carbon with a medium-rise and a six-inch inseam. Accordingly, you receive ample coverage, which promotes muscle support and skin protection. Additionally, the leg openings feature a beaded silicone gripper, replacing the common, restrictive elastic gripper systems. As a result of, the shorts are free from rubbing and pinching over the quads and hamstrings.

To take comfort levels even further on the bike, TYR included its new Carbon AMP chamois. This insert features a stretchable construction in order to support and follow all of your movements in the saddle. TYR has also constructed the AMP from different densities of foam, with most of the support resting in the middle of the chamois. So, the insert supports your body where it needs it in the aero position, not where it doesn't. Through this construction technique, TYR has been able to create an anatomic shape for the chamois, eliminating chafing, bunching, and pinching. To deal with friction between the skin and the surface of the insert, TYR rounded out the construction with a bacteriostatic fabric at the chamois' surface to fight off the microbes that cause odor.

NOTE: To cater to different needs and budgets, TYR engineers two triathlon lines. Competitor garments offer a compressive fit, while carbon garments offer a super compressive fit for a second-skin feel. You should select your same, standard size for both carbon and competitor garments but expect slightly different fits.
How to Measure:
For best results take measurements over your underwear, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Chest:
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Waist:
Bend to the side and measure around the place where your waist bends, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Hip:
Stand with feet together and measure around the fullest part of the hip.
Torso:
With someone's help, run a tape measure full circle from your shoulder at the neck, over the fullest part of your chest, down through the center of your crotch and back up to the starting point.
