When purchasing shorts for your triathlon there are several things to take into consideration. Perhaps the most crucial piece to your tri short is the chamois. You want to be comfortable on the bike but you do not want your chamois to inhibit your performance during the swim or run legs of the race. A triathlon chamois can range from a thin fleece chamois to a thicker foam pad. The bike leg of the race is the longest and if you are competing in an Ironman then you are in for a gruelling 112 miles in the saddle. Choose your chamois wisely! Other considerations are nutrition pockets, inseam length, leg grippers and compression capabilities. Compression panels can help prevent injury and speed recovery after the race.
