Fast and comfortable Trisuit
Quote | Reply
Looking for a fast and comfortable tri suit. I have used the Zoot ultra, LG pro carbon, own way apparel stealth Joey cut. I didn’t like any of them.

They all lacked an adequate chamois and lead to major groin area discomfort and man bits rubbing.

Looking for ideas.

Interesting - how is your saddle? I find that I do all of my riding in my trishorts - too much chamois is super uncomfortable - most every tri chammy is pretty thin by design I think.

Just a different idea since the ones you have tried all seem to be very well thought of trisuits.

lets just say the issue isn't saddle based...

...its rubbing of another part down below against the suits respective stitching.



I have tried to adjust in many different positions to no luck...there just isn't enough padding...up front.

+1 to being uncomfortable with a thicker chamois. I have some DeSoto tri bib-shorts that have pretty thick chamois, for a trisuit, and I don’t like them. Now I mainly use an Orka and a Castelli suit, both of which have pretty thin chamois and more comfortable.

I guess I am not looking for something that is thicker...but a larger are to cover more territory...to keep the sticking around the kit away from the bits.

I so want to try one of these - http://muscleskinsuit.com/...-skinsuit-triathlon/
I have some leggings that are really good to run in as they are nice and light but provide enough warmth when it's cold.

N=1: Used an older 2xu suit no issues at all at any time. Bought a new one that is fast and super comfortable but something just isnt right down there, max is half ironman in it.
What i have used instead for IM is the Zone3 Lava shorts (you could get the lave suit), is has a thicker chamois (ofcourse not like cycling bibs), and no issues down there and not noticeable on the run either. How fast it is i have no idea :)

I really like my Kiwami kits... I even have a kit with no chamois at all that is fine for me for Sprint/Oly races.
