TYR Competitor Tank and Short – Women

The draw: Comfort in the aero position

This racerback tank features a built-in bra, quick dry material, figure-flattering seams, and a back pocket big enough for a smart phone and full-size bars. The shorts’ thick, long chamois provided ample coverage for testers when riding in aero without feeling diaper-like on the run. They also feature a rear zip pocket for keys, IDs, and credit cards. Tack on UPF 50+ rated material and comfortable compression, and this kit a go-to for long training days and races. Longer eight-inch shorts offer more leg coverage than most.
