As one of the original triathlon brands, Zoot enjoys a heritage that is deeply rooted in Kona—in fact, the company was founded there in 1983. So, along with run shoes, Zoot has created a Kona-specific apparel line. This limited edition kit is hard to miss, with sublimated Hawaiian prints on its moisture-wicking Italian fabrics that boast UPF 50+ sun protection. The jersey features a full-length zipper with three rear pockets and a comfy leg opening that uses small circles of silicone to stay in place instead of a full band. The men’s kit features cycling bibs, while women have the option of a 6- or 7-inch short.
