How to Buy Triathlon Apparel

Are you training for your first triathlon with our Tri4Women program? Thinking about giving one a shot? Here are some tips for purchasing the right outfit for race day!

  • You can go for a full suit or separates – really it’s just your preference! Either way, the bottoms will have a chamois (“shammy”) to help keep your seat comfortable on the bike portion of the event.
  • When trying on tri apparel, just know that it will feel very compressive (tight!) in the fitting room. You don’t want to size up – the compression is important because the fabric will expand as soon as you hit the water.
  • You will wear the same thing for the swim, bike, and run so it is important to do a trial run in all three areas to make sure there are no race day surprises!

Over half of our staff have completed a triathlon so there is always someone available to provide advice!
