Orca's popular 226 Kompress Tri Tech Short is constructed from Orca's KillaSkn Kompress fabric, which is scientifically proven to provide optimum levels of active and graduated compression, helping triathletes race further, faster. The fabric is water repellent for performance in the swim, has UPF50 sun protection and is anti bacterial. The new wide cut KompressMesh leg hems provide a super comfortable, low profile hem that aids with muscle compression and blood flow from the upper legs to the heart, helping you to go harder for longer.The 226 Tri Tech Short has a revised technical waistband with draw cord that sits flat against the skin for increased comfort and two angled rear pockets to hold contents more securely. The Short utilises Orca's technically advanced 4mm hybrid chamois, which is perforated for increased breathability. Reflective elements provide increased visibility in low light conditions, while longer leg coverage with the 23cm9in inseam gives more support.
