Paying respect.

With Zoot creating a limited edition collection that pays homage to Kona, it's not surprising that the lineup is based primarily around its top-end triathlon apparel. After all, when your business was founded in the district of Hawaii that plays host to the world-famous Ironman, you learn a thing or two about manufacturing clothing specifically for the discipline. Such is the case with the new Ultra Tri Ali'i 8in Shorts, which were designed with Zoot's same proven signature details that have been trusted by competitive triathletes for the past 30 years.

For the majority of the Ultra Tri shorts' construction, Zoot incorporated a sublimated and Italian-sourced Tavolara fabric, which is composed of a 210g blend of polyester and spandex. You're probably wondering where it ranks in comparison to the standard Performance Endura material? Well, you'll find that this fabric places more of an emphasis on moisture management, comfort, and breathability than the supportive focus of the Endura. As a result, the Ali'i's construction is slightly more flexible and far more effective at transferring moisture away from the skin. This means that your range of motion is narrowly increased, and your level of dry, cooling comfort is heightened.

Zoot's BIOwrap is oriented at the hem, and it features a 240 denier spandex composition. Accordingly, its fiber weight and resulting knit structure create a highly-compressive level of support, shielding your muscles from oscillation and road vibrations. This means that the fabric's hold lessens muscle fatigue, thus extending your muscle endurance and bolstering your threshold. Additionally, this design eliminates the need for leg grippers, thoroughly increasing your comfort level over the course of a race.

In terms of fit, the Ultra Ali'i shorts were designed with racing in mind. To achieve this, Zoot incorporated its proprietary stitching, SeamLink. This technique minimizes the stitch profile along the seams, providing a next-to-skin fit that nearly eliminates the risk of chafing and abrasion. Welded leg hems permit a complete range of motion for the swim, the saddle, and the run. Additionally, Zoot finished off the shorts with a draw cord at the inside of the waist panel to secure the shorts' fit.

Furthering this level of comfort, Zoot included its Integra SBR 1D chamois. This insert features a minimalist construction to provide enough support for the bike leg without inhibiting comfort in either the swim or run. And because of the swim, Zoot also designed the Integra to be water-resistant and quick-drying.

The Zoot Ultra Tri Ali'i 8in Shorts are available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the Black/zoot yellow colorway. Additionally, the shorts feature an 8-inch inseam (size Medium).
