ZOOT Ultra Tri Speed 6in Women's Shorts - $124.95

Think of everything that you need in a pair of triathlon shorts. If you're like us, comfort, hydrodynamics, and speed topped your list. And not surprisingly, these characteristics rank highly with Zoot as well. So, Zoot created the Ultra Tri Speed 6in Women's shorts to embody the aforementioned. Starting with the bulk of the Ultra Tri Speed shorts' construction, Zoot used its venerable ULTRArevo with an HP Speed Finish. We'll break this title down into two categories, given that ULTRArevo is the fabric and HP Speed is the treatment. So, starting with the former, this material was implemented for its supportive knit structure. Featuring a compressive fiber weight and structured knit, ULTRArevo is supports the muscle groups without a feeling a constriction. Accordingly, by lessening the fatigue-inducing effects of road vibration and run impact, you're able to maintain a higher threshold throughout the land legs of your race. Additionally, this fabric is highly breathable and it also efficiently manages moisture. As for the HP Speed Finish, this treatment places a priority repelling water. So, in other words, it's engineered to be hydrophobic. In fact, it's developed on a fiber by fiber basis, where each yarn is isolated and a barrier is created around it. Accordingly, water is thoroughly repelled, increasing your speed and comfort through the water. And, just as importantly, this finish directly equates to a quick dry post-T1. Even better, when combined with the high-gauge construction of ULTRArevo, the material becomes resistant to both sand and pilling. In terms of fit, the Ultra Tri Speed was design 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. - $124.95
