ZOOT Active Tri 8in Men's Shorts - $54.95

Take a moment and mentally record what's of importance to you in a pair of tri shorts' We're willing to bet that comfort, freedom of movement, and support were at or near the top of your list. Well, not surprisingly, Zoot's new Active Tri 8in Shorts embody all of the above characteristics. Zoot incorporated two different fabrics for the construction of the Active Tri shorts. And while both of these materials work harmoniously towards the same objective, we're not hesitant to say that Zoot's BIOwrap provides the most pronounced results. 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 the oscillation resulting from both road vibration and run impact. 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 poignant leg grippers, thoroughly increasing your comfort level over the course of a triathlon. The shorts' other panels consist of the venerable Endura fabric. This material was incorporated in order to assist in moisture management. Accordingly, it's been strategically placed in the shorts to pull moisture away from the skin and transport it to the quick-drying surface of the material. Additionally, Zoot placed this at the legs for its high levels of stretch and breathability. So, you maintain a complete freedom of movement, while also maintaining a consistently cool temperature within the shorts. In terms of fit, these shorts are cut with racing in mind. To achieve this, Zoot incorporated an eight-inch inseam and 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. Furthering this level of comfort, Zoot included its Integra SBR 1D chamois. - $54.95
