If you've ever expressed disappointment in your triathlon race apparel, we understand why. When you think about it, creating one piece to function throughout three disciplines is quite the challenge. And while we applaud the industry's ambition to do so, we're generally disappointed with the execution.

In terms of fit, TYR designed the Competitor Tri Suit for competitors, meaning that it's ready for endurance racing. It features a comfort beaded silicone leg hem, knee length lowers, and inset armholes that allow a non pinching locomotion of the arms during the run and swim. And as a result of these featur...
