Tri Shorts (for men)
Hello, my name is Austin and i have a quick question about clothing issues. I was thinking about purchasing some tri shorts. Now if i were to get some i would be able to swim, bike and run in those, correct? All this layering i read with a swimsuit under biking shorts and running shorts seems it would be uncomfortable. So is it possible to just wear the same shorts for every event?
This is my very first triathlon, i just got back from a deployment in Afghanistan and i thought it would be a blast to try something new! Thank you for you time! great website!

Yes, you can wear simply Tri Shorts for the entire event. The layering example we have on the website is more for those who want to use a wet suit, cycling shorts and/or running shorts over their swim suit.
Please let us know how your first triathlon goes. We’d love to inspire our readers with your story!
