Master of every domain.

Support for your muscles and your core during a tri is key, and the compression aficionados at Australia-based 2XU know this fact well. No strangers to crafting garments that move with you throughout the exhausting phases of the swim, bike, and run legs of a race, 2XU created its Men's Compression Tri Short to keep you cool and supported so you can race your best.

Constructed with a 105-denier fabric, the Compression Tri Short was designed to dry as quickly as possible after you swim then continuously wick moisture away from your skin as the temperature rises throughout a race. The fabric also uses a compressive fit to support your hardworking glutes, hamstrings, and abductors as you race while offering UPF 50+ protection as you spend hours in harsh sunlight.

Two rear pockets give you space to store crucial race nutrition while the wide waistband supports your core. For the chamois, the Tri shorts feature 2XU's Elite LD insert. Developed specifically for triathlon, the Elite LD uses a thin, yet ample padding to provide the necessary support while in the saddle, without feeling bulky and uncomfortable during the swim and run. It's lighter and less cushioned than a cycling-only chamois, so it dries fast and won't leave you on a sodden wad of foam padding for the entirety of the bike leg.
