TYR Competitor 9″ Short

Last week, I bought a pair of TYR Competitor 9″ tri shorts just so I can change things around.  I’ve got in the habit of regularly using tri shorts in my training so I can do a swim bike brick.  I’m still just more comfortable running in a regular pair of shorts however.

I bought the 9″ inseam version, all black.  It’s a great looking short, but the magic of this product is the Amp-Pad.

Features:


The pad itself is highly breathable and comfortable.  To personally describe the pad, after wearing it on a ride, it’s dense, and thin.  There’s no doubt that it’s a tri short, but the pad feels better than two of the chamois I currently have on my other bike shorts.  Granted, those other shorts are old, but it’s impressive.

The “gripper” on the short are beaded, providing for more comfort around the thighs.  The short has a total of three pockets.  Two are on each side of the lower thigh, and one is a rear zipper right around the tail bone.
Awesome short. A 7″ short is also available.  And if you’re so inclined, the Carbon version is available  here as well!
