Triathlon Suit: How to Buy a New Suit for the Big Race



While some athletes prefer specific outfits for different leg of triathlons, a triathlon suit moves from swimming to biking to running without the need to shuck layers or make changes. A triathlon suit is considered an important piece of gear for everyone from beginners to experienced triathletes. Learn how to choose the best suit for you for comfort and performance on race day.

The best suit should fit snugly without binding, be flexible to give you full range of motion and be appropriately padded or layered to prevent chafing. Because you will be getting into and out of a wetsuit and additional gear as the difference phases of the race commence, the triathlon suit should never snack or have exposed findings that could make changes more difficult.

A suit may simply look like a tight onesie, but they are actually made of high tech fabric designed to wick away moisture and provide gentle compression and support for muscles. If you intend to wear your triathlon suit in the water, on the bike and while running, drying quickly is one of the most important traits.


Other important pictures of a suit include a chamois pad in the seat area, enhanced UV protection to avoid sun damage, wicking material to dry quickly and multi-panel triathlon suit construction for appropriate support and comfort to major muscle groups.
