What Tri-suits do the pros wear?
One-Piece Triathlon Suits While a two-piece suit has ties to the origins of the sport, a one-piece triathlon suit has quickly become the go-to option for multisport athletes who are the most competitive (most pros wear a one-piece tri kit).
Are triathlon suits worth it?
Triathlon suits: Not necessary, but nice-to-have. A good triathlon suit is designed specifically for triathlon, and offers benefits that may help you race faster and be as comfortable as possible. On the downside, triathlon suits can be expensive, and you can easily do triathlons without them.
What is the fastest tri suit?
THE WORLD’S FASTEST TRISUIT After years of research, testing and collaboration, leading triathlon brandZone3 is proud to announce the release of the world’s fastest tri-suit, the Aeroforce-X.

How much does a triathlon suit cost?
The average cost of a tri-suit is $230 while ranging between $75 and $475. The cost of the triathlon suit depends on the brand, if it is a one or two-piece suit, sleeved or sleeveless suit, and the materials used. Note that sleeved tri-suits tend to be more expensive than sleeveless tri suites.
Should a Trisuit be tight?
Your tri suit should be tight rather than loose. Even though tri suits, over time, will stretch with your body, the best tri suits are designed with strategically located compression around the core and hip area. This is particularly the case with the ‘speed suits’ used by many people in non-wetsuit races.
Do tri suits have chamois?
The chamois pad that features in a tri suit is a lot thinner than that which you’d find in a pair of cycling bib shorts. This reduces the chance of chafing on the run, and also means it dries more quickly.
Do triathletes Pee on the bike?
On to the matter at hand – yes, some triathletes do, in fact, pee on their bikes. If it’s not obvious, triathletes pee while riding their bike so they don’t have to stop – saving precious time for competitive races.
How long does a tri suit last?
How long a wetsuit lasts is largely dependent on the quality of the product and how you look after it. But a decent triathlon wetsuit from a reputable brand should last anywhere between four and 10 years depending on frequency of use.
Can you swim in just a tri suit?
In a triathlon you want to wear what is called a triathlon suit or a triathlon kit (a top/bottom combo) designed to be worn in the swim, the bike, and finally the run. In other words, you do not take it off! With the exception of the wetsuit (if needed), you need not put on any other piece of clothing.
How tight should a tri suit be?
Fit is critical. A good tri wetsuit should be snug but not tight, covering your body securely but not being restrictive in your breathing or range-of-motion. It is a fine line, as a wetsuit that is just a little too loose and actually cause you to drag in the water and reduce the warming qualities of the suit.
Do you wear a sports bra with a tri suit?
The answer is no. You should not wear underwear (except a sports bra) under your trisuit in a race. Additionally, your underwear could retain water and counteract the quick drying properties of your suit.
Do you need a wetsuit for a triathlon?
For open water swims, the use of a triathlon wetsuit is usually mandatory. Under the wetsuit you would wear the tri suit or tri top & shorts. You may also need a neoprene skull cap, a pair of swim gloves and pair of booties in really cold conditions.
Why is triathlon so expensive?
So far, that leaves us with this: Traveling to races in the U.S. is expensive because it takes more time and more hotel nights should you venture across the country or up a mountain. In Germany, people happily flick $30 to race organizers for a sprint. (See: Ravensburger Triathlon, now in its 33rd year.)
Does a tri suit have padding?
A tri-suit is a one-piece garment specifically engineered for triathlon, usually including quick-drying features, padding at the rear and zippers to provide you with a do-it-all suit that you won’t have to change out of while swimming, cycling and running.
