Great tri short racing and training

I’ve used the short for racing, but more recently began doing brick workouts with them. They are durable and comfortable for high usage. Love the pockets. Also, really like tight and comfortable legs. Keep muscles compressed and they do not ride up.

Iron distance shorts

I LOVE the shorts for many reasons. POCKETS! Finally, pockets allow me to carry gels or salt or anything I need without extra accessory drama. The pocket tops have a flap that stops them from turning into a 'sail' in the water while swimming. These pockets are deep and wide enough to hold a small flask even. The pockets hold their shape even after such use. The material of the short is VERY durable. I have used these shorts in at least 4 Ironman in the past 3 years. THESE SHORTS just LAST. The white fabric does not stain easily from swimming in lakes nor gator-aide spills. The pad is perfect. Its NOT a diaper and I wear these right out of the water straight to the bike saddle. I have been very impressed with this short. Highly recommend this for full Iron distance races.

Great shorts!

I have several pairs of these shorts and have used them on both full and half Ironman races. The padding is excellent and the fit is very comfortable. I wear the same pair of shorts throughout the race (I don't change shorts in transition) and they are quite comfortable on all three legs. I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 because the first two pairs of these shorts that I bought frayed around the thigh pretty quickly. The newer pairs of these shorts seem okay and haven't frayed yet. Like any shorts, the padding does give out after significant use so I mark the shorts with a date so I have a sense of when to retire them.
