Some of us prefer a one-piece for our training and racing suits, and some prefer two. However, regardless of your training apparel preference, a chlorinated pool is still going to wreak havoc on what you're wearing. That's why TYR created both a one-piece, and this Competitor Reversible Workout Bikini, that are 100% chlorine-resistant for your triathlon pool training.
For the construction of the Competitor Reversible Workout bikini, TYR used a high-denier blend of polyester and spandex. So, let's breakdown what this actually means. By incorporating these two fibers, both pieces of the bikini gain the breathability and hold of polyester, while the spandex adds the required stretch for the locomotion of swimming. Additionally, the high denier, or high fiber-weight, means that the construction's knit is supportive. Accordingly, the bikini holds the muscle groups of the glutes and chest in place, protecting them from any unwanted movements or oscillation. Effectively, this reduces fatigue, meaning that you're able to swim at your threshold for longer periods of time.
The aforementioned has been further supported through the bikini's circular knit construction. This technique creates a nearly seamless tube, which provides an equal level of support over the two parts of the body. Additionally, this construction method minimizes the need for seams, meaning that the risk of chafing is nearly eliminated.
For durability, TYR made the bikini 100% chlorine-proof and with 100% colorfastness. So, neither your training or racing schedule stand to degrade the bikini. In terms of fit, the bottoms of the Competitor feature a mid-rise at the waist, and it's cut to provide coverage at both the front and rear. The top is cut akin to TYR's Competitor Thin Strap Top, meaning that it's shaped high on the chest and low on the back. In fact, the rear portion runs just under the scapula, and it meets the thin straps directly between them at the upper-middle of the spine. This provides an ample surface area of coverage, thus favoring both hydrodynamics and muscle support.
The TYR Competitor Reversible Workout Bikini is available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Black/red, Black/grey, and Black/light blue.
