2014 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Women’s-Specific Gear

Triathlon kit

Women’s-specific brand SOAS Racing offers a variety of prints, from playful polka dot to sleek all-black to retro cool, as shown in the Vintage Tank and Shorts ($180). But the cut of this race apparel is what really flatters—a longer tank length means you stay fully covered and aren’t tugging at your hemline during a race, and the elastic-free waistband doesn’t put the squeeze on your midsection. Altogether there are five pockets to stash your essentials.
