2013 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Run Compression

2XU Tri Short

$130, 2xu.com
The draw: Outstanding race short plus quad support

This short (matching sin- glet also $130) is intended for all race distances, although the chamois may be a bit thin for an iron-distance ride. The Lycra blend fabric offers a little much-needed support to the quad muscles at the end of a long run. Two small rear pockets are useful for stashing gels.
