Tri shorts

tri shorts have padding in the arse for the skinny saddle..

I have pearl izumu tri shorts, extremely comfy


  • Hi!

    I'm doing my first sprint tri in May and am not sure whether I should invest in some tri shorts or a pair of long swim 'jammers'. Does a tri short have extra padding for comfort on the cycle? I need to search for a fairly cheap pair since I am broke due to married life approaching fast......

    Can anyone help?

    I have tri shorts and they have a fleece pad in them for comfort. They are OK buit not as good as cycle shorts.

    I would defo get some as they dry quickly and are comfy. i have Orca shorts bought from ebay for................You will need to lean close to the screen for this and make sure no one else is listening........... ok is the coast clear? £3 including postage. Happy hunting.

    There is a site called JEJamescycles- saw their ad in 220 mag. I ordered some 2005 Quintana Roo shorts for training in for about a fiver brand new and really pleased. They had boy ones too but a bit limited on size and stock. Worth a look though.
