The 2XU Men's Perform Tri 9in Short facilitates quick drying comfort, light compression, and low profile padding for triathletes. Its 7D elastane SBR Power fabric offers lightly compressive properties, supporting key muscle groups during the swim, bike, and run stages. The fabric's hydro optimized profile helps you slip through the water with minimal drag. Moreover, it not only dries quickly once you leave the water, but its wicking properties facilitate the evaporation of built up perspiration during sweaty bike and run stages. You'll appreciate the shorts' adjustable waistband, which dials in a great fit. Its silicone free Y elastic leg grippers keep 'em nice and secure through fast paced movements, both in and out of the water. In addition, the shorts' LD chamois provides a thinly padded, perforated foam insert for on bike comfort, without chafing or retaining excess moisture after you leave the water.
