TYR Hurricane Category 3

 “You’re only as fast as your wetsuit will let you be.”-TYR


With that said, and your money pockets taken into consideration, feast your eyes on the Category 3. TYR’s  Hurricane wetsuit series is composed of three tiers (pun intended), 1, 3, and 5. For those that want the primary technologies of the Category 5, but don’t want to spend top dollar, the C3 is the perfect option for a mid range suit. The wetsuit boasts light-weight Yamamoto 38/39 SCS coated neoprene, as well as varying 5mm panels. The high-buoyancy 5mm panels found in the chest, legs, and core were designed to help the swimmer to be elevated in the water and keep the swimmer from dropping their lower half.

TYR Competitor Tri Singlet and Tri Short

TYR has debuted a new line this year called the Competitor Line. The line of tri shorts as well as triathlon singlets were designed particularly for comfort, sot that athletes could  reap the benefits of their hours spent on the road training. What’s so great and different about this line? Let me explain….

Beginning with the TYR singlet, I’d like to note the fact that it’s white. No other company makes a top for women  in this color. Why white? I get asked by countless people in the shop for white tops in general. After 4, 5, 6, hours on the road you’ll understand why a black top (in pretty hot weather mind you) will feel most certainly warmer. Beyond the fact that it’s white, it still offers 50 SPF and UV Protection. It conveniently has a zipper pocket on the back to store your necessary nutrition (my favorite part about the top, other than it being white). A front zip can be found on the front of the top, which is again perfect for adjustability in warmer weather.

On to the short..I realize that I have raved about the De Soto Carrera in a previous post. The only thing that short is missing is  a decent tri pad. The Competitor Tri Short features the newly designed and advanced TYR Tri-Pad for which denotes to help with even weight distribution and chafing, as well as  irritation prevention. It’s hard to find a decent tri pad that’s perfectly in the middle of not too bulky like a diaper, but still offers some padding. Fleece liners don’t quite cut it after miles 30 or 40. Another note-worth addition of this short is the gripper. It is lined with a silicone beading, which keeps the short from sliding up and down, while leaving you WITHOUT irritation and sausage legs! A zipper pocket is also featured on the back of the short to store even more of your goodies.
