This 2XU Long Distance Tri Short offers the compressive yet breathable properties of 2XU's ICE X fabric. Coupled with 2XU's revolutionary 70D Kinetic Speed fabric boasting dimpled airflow technology, unrivalled moisture management and speed through the air are assured. 2XU's Y Elastic Grip, adjustable waist drawstring and Italian Elite LD Chamois combine to deliver an optimal fitting, long distance race short. Side pockets for race essentials.
ICE X - Through the use of Xylitol and IR blocking, 2XU has engineered a fabric for endurance events like no other. Xylitol is embedded in the yarn of the fabric to draw heat from the body and IR blocking inhibits penetration of infrared rays to lower skin temperature by up to 5.4 degrees F. The application of ICE X to polyester/elastane delivers heightened moisture management whilst high filament yarns and a higher gauge knit are utilized for a lighter, breathable fabric which also delivers compressive pressure.
ELITE LD CHAMOIS - This multi-layered chamois features revolutionary perforation technology for ventilation plus impressive quick drying capability for great comfort on the bike. High filament count delivers durability and softness against the skin while high density foam offers support.

I have three styles of 2XU shorts, including previous generations of the long distance short. I do not like these as much as I hoped. I like that the fabric is thinner and I like the style of the elastic in the waistband and leg holes, but the shorts are 2" too long. The padding of the chamois is thin, but thicker than the active short. I haven't tried getting them wet, but by texture, I imagine it dries fast. It isn't as thick as previous generations of the same style, but that might be better for drying/wicking.
