New, top performing women's tri short made entirely of our finest Forza compressor fabric. This piece is designed to be compression so you will feel less fatigue in your quads and hamstrings. Single back pocket allows you to carry your essentials. Floatpad also provides a little more comfort for those longer races, but doesn't bulk up or cause unwanted heaviness. Higher waistband is great for long distance races as there is no band digging into your waist to cause GI issues. However, if you prefer a lower waist band, simply fold it down. This piece is highly functioning while providing style for those who prefer. Made in USA.
