Offering a couple of inches of additional leg coverage compared to its shorter sibling, the 2XU Perform Tri 9in Short was designed to be worn with 2XU's Perform tri top. The short offers the same 70D elastane construction as the Perform top for a supportive, contoured fit that will hold its shape and stay in place throughout your swim, bike, run, and transitions. 2XU also engineered the fabric to dry quickly after you get out of the water then wick moisture away from your skin continuously as temperatures rise during the run. 2XU constructed the leg bands and wide waistband to lie flat and sit close to the body without pinching, and it lined the short with its LD chamois, a tri specific design that aims to provide just enough cushioning for the bike leg without interfering with your range of motion during the run. Like the rest of the short, the LD chamois also dries quickly once you're out of the water and onto the bike.
