The Draw: Time-Trialing Standout

Don this budget-friendly kit when you want to tuck in for a long ride on the TT bike. The jersey has longer, aerodynamic sleeves, and the hem length (and gripper) ensure your back is fully covered when you’re stretched out over your tri bars. The mesh back panel kept us from overheating while still o ering UPF 50+ protection. The bibs felt equally lightweight, thanks to an airy mesh upper, and the wide bands around the leg openings felt compressive, but not oppressive. The multi-density chamois comes up a little higher in the front for solid coverage in the TT position. If you don’t mind wardrobe changes in transition, this kit would shine during the bike leg of an Ironman.

$95 jersey, $115 bibs (men’s)
