Men's Elite Aero Short Sleeve Tri Suit
This one-piece short sleeve tri suit is designed to provide the optimal balance of aerodynamics, function, and comfort for triathlons of any distance, from sprint to full iron distance. It's available in seven sizes (including talls) in a tight and compressive race fit.
The Elite Aero Short Sleeve Tri Suit is crafted with premium textiles, trims and hardware. The base textile in the chest, arms, shoulders, back and legs is a premium, textured knit from Italy that has been worn to victory in the Tour de France and proven in the wind tunnel to offer excellent aerodynamics. This midweight knit balances stretch and support and was paneled to be comfortable and sufficiently flexible on the swim, fast on the bike, and supportive on the run.
The textured short sleeve design of this model differentiates it from our sleeveless version. Tested in the wind tunnel, our short-sleeve design tested 7 watts faster on the bike than our sleeveless suit, which translates to 2 minutes and 10 seconds over 180 km. This style has become increasingly popular in recent years, but does have less range of motion and stretch on the swim. Most triathletes adapt to this by rolling their suit down to their waist under a wetsuit or swimskin and then pulling it up in T1.
The textile paneled through the core and front panel is a premium Schoeller Eschler knit with a carbon cage design that provides support and all-day comfort, without putting too much pressure on your stomach, which can be uncomfortable over a full-distance race.
We've strategically paneled premium and highly aerodynamic Schoeller Eschler mesh in the chest and back to help thermoregulation – keeping the body cooler on hot days. The suit is treated with Schoeller Coldblack®, which has been proven to reflect sun and reduce heat build-up in dark fabrics. A laser cut, high-stretch trim with integrated elastic was placed on the leg, arm and neck openings to help secure your suit in place, to diffuse pressure for improved comfort, and to help prevent the dreaded sausage leg.
Designed by triathletes for triathletes, we sought to design garments that are fast and highly functional. Not only can you train and race comfortably for hours in the suit, but also we've considered the inevitable pit stop. A custom #3 YKK zipper pull and a separating "decoupled" long front zipper make it easy to unzip mid-race for quick pit stops or to roll the suit down to the waist under a wetsuit or swimskin for the swim, as some pros prefer.
Dual powermesh pockets are placed off the spine for comfort and canted at an angle for easier access on the bike and run. They hold a very solid amount of nutrition or other special needs gear and are large and strong enough to hold securely a 5 oz. EFS gel flask or even a larger 7 oz. Fuel Belt flask.
We use a premium, single-density Italian chamois from Elastic Interface® (CyTech), which provides optimum protection against chafing while offering total freedom of movement and excellent fit. A soft, carbon knit top sheet has been proven in the market for several years and offers sufficient padding on the bike without feeling like you are running with a diaper. Athletes have won numerous full distance Ironmans on this chamois, so please note that with a proper bike fit, you should not need a large, thick chamois for a triathlon. We strongly recommend getting a professional bike fit; it's worth the investment. Just say no to Triathlon Diaper Butt!
We have very limited production of this style. If your size is sold out, we will have additional production later this fall.
Please also note that because of the highly textured material, mesh, exposed pockets and front zipper, we do not recommend swimming in this suit without a wetsuit or swimskin over it. The fabric is not coated to repel water, and you will be much faster with a swimskin or wetsuit. We are certain that time saved on the swim will outweigh the few seconds you trade-off in transition at T1.
Made in the USA.
