The Draw: A New, Fresh Take
We’re excited to see Swedish sports brand Salming make its first foray into the triathlon race-kit space—and its first offering is a solid one. The kit is uniquely made with two very different fabrics; the yellow side panels are very stretchy, while the main part of the kit is made of a black compression material. The combination is an interesting (and e ective) way to maximize comfort in every position. The nutrition storage is impressively ample, but the pockets are not covered so wearing a wetsuit or speedsuit on the swim is a must with this kit. The fit is a bit larger than other brands (consider sizing down), and the legs are proportionally a bit shorter than those on other brands.
