8 Triathlon Racing Kits From The 2013 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide

Orca RS1 Enduro Race Suit

$209, Orca.com
The draw: High-performance suit for any distance

This sleek one-piece kit felt fast in the water thanks to its hydrophobic, low-drag fabric, which visibly beads water from its outer surface, and was extremely comfortable running and biking. Like many Orca race suits, it’s made for leaner triathletes and runs small, so consider going up a size. The hip holster pockets, lined with reflective tape and good for holding energy gels close to the body, are another thoughtful feature for long- or short-course triathletes who want just one article of race clothing in which to do it all. Seams are neatly finished to avoid chafing, fabric felt plush and the durable leg bands lightly cinch the upper thighs without leaving marks.
