2XU Femme Tri Shorts -

It says it all in the name. The 2XU Femme Women's Tri Shorts are made to tackle the specific problems that women face over the course of triathlon. Do they share technology with 2XU's men's line of tri shorts? Absolutely, but they're fit, cut, and chamois are all their own.

2XU approached the Femme Tri Shorts 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. We know, we're not fans of titles filled with seemingly arbitrary numbers and letters, either. So, let's make some sense of this fabric. Basically, the '70D' stands for 70 denier. What's a denier? Simply put, 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 Tri Shorts use 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 SBR 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 still includes technical aspects to increase efficiency in the water and on the land. 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 a reduction in hydrodynamic and accelerate drag. But, you're probably wondering how this is possible? Well, this material 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. Additionally, 2XU used a multi-panel, anatomic construction to further accentuate your comfort.

2XU ensured that you'll be blazing into T1, but how do the shorts hold up from there? Of course, one of the most pressing issues is riding or running with a wet, bulky chamois -- our bodies cringe merely thinking about it. The approach to alleviating this concern was twofold. First, the chamois has to be substantial enough for support in the saddle, yet it can't be so sizable as to inhibit your swim or run. Secondly, the insert has to remain dry over all three disciplines. Basically, 2XU set out to create the Holy Grail of triathlon chamois, and it did with the exclusive LD insert. This chamois uses a variable density design that provides targeted support to pressured nerves, while remaining unnoticeable on foot and in the water. Additionally, 2XU constructed the chamois from a micro-filament polyester yarn with hydrophobic properties. So, neither water or perspiration will bog down the dryness of the fleece.

Furthering your dryness, 2XU included side panels that are constructed from its highly breathable and stretchable Sensor Mesh X fabric. To ensure the shorts' fit, 2XU placed a yoga-esque waistband. Additionally, the legs are held in place by 2XU's own, non-abrasive silicone leg grippers. And for further comfort, the Femme Tri Shorts feature a complete flatlock seam construction. So, you won't experience anymore pinching or painful rubbing in your shorts. The shorts even feature two rear pockets to house your race day nutrition.

The 2XU Femme Women's Tri Shorts are available in five sizes from X-Small to X-Large and in the colors Bermuda Blue/blue fondale, Black/black, and Northern Lights Blue/ultremare.
