Zoot Ultra Tri Short and Tank – Women

The draw: Compressive

Zoot uses a thicker material to make this suit, not a typical Lycra fabric, that helps support the body and offers completely opaque coverage. It gently holds everything in place, and a thick shelf bra gives even more support. The shorts use a very minimalist pad, which should be noted by long-course racers preferring a thick chamois. The leg cuff doesn’t require any gripper to keep it in place—the sturdy, compressive fabric does the job. Seven pockets across the top and short provide a ton of storage, which makes this kit also appealing for a long training day.
