We were the first to make a short with no gripper on the legs so you won't find any squeezing or pressing around the thighs! Sizing: Please refer to the size chart button above for sizing guidance. Fit Type: Form-Fitted Fit Note: Please do not assume your size is the same as previous years, please use our size chart and if in doubt, email us at: [email protected]. Triathlon apparel is meant to fit next-to-skin. This is to eliminate potential chafing, and unnecessary drag during the swim, bike and run. If you’re not comfortable with this type of fit and or are between sizes, we recommend sizing up. Garment will fit the most snug the first time you put it on, it will relax slightly once wet.
