Here’s a look at the designs for the new tri kit that is now in the process of being made for us by our friends at Carvalho Custom. We’re super-excited to be able to offer this for our athletes from the end of July 2013 and will be holding stock in a range of sizes.
The Mens/unisex tri top has a 3/4 length front zip, mesh side panels and side/rear pockets. This is my personal garment of choice for long distance racing in hot climates, worn over a crop top. This gives better coverage for my back on the bike, and the option to remove it in T2 for the run. We specified a long cut in this garment for better lower back coverage whilst on the bike, and a more flattering look in the running position!
The Ladies version of the tri top features a very comfortable integrated sports bra, as well as the same cool mesh panels and side/back pockets. It’s a very flattering fit and is an ideal garment for your whole triathlon as well as a great running vest. Of course, the built-in bra will not suit women of all builds and so the unisex top may be a better option for some. The ladies short crop top may be worn as an undergarment or as a race top in hot conditions. Those with specific “support issues” find that it is comfortable worm over their own preferred type of sports bra.
The tri shorts also come in a mens and a ladies cut, the mens having a longer leg length and higher waist band. The girls are fortunate in that we can choose to wear either type, and I find both very comfortable – my preference is for the shorter leg-length ladies version, which also features a low “comfort” waist band but i might opt for the longer leg version for long-distance races or at times when I’m carrying a little more mass in the thigh region!
