  • 8/29/2013 TYR Competitor Men's 9" Tri Short is great!

    rating star By K. Dorman

    I am an avid triathlete that trains 5 - 6 days a week. The TYR Competitor Men's 9" Tri Short is the answer to years of frustrating purchases of products that either cause irritation, don't fit right, or wear thin within months of purchase. I am very pleased with the longevity and durability experienced with this tri short. They are comfortable and don't cause discomfort from heavy use. I will definitely purchase them again.

  • 8/22/2013 High Quality Tri Shorts

    rating star By mwanner1

    These are really nice shorts.  I got the solid black pair.  The first thing I noticed was the size of the protective pad in the shorts.  It is very similar to the one in my cycling shorts in terms of thickness, providing comfort for long distances.  Some other tri shorts barely have any protection whatsoever.  I also like the gel tabs around the leg openings.  These prevent riding up of the short.  Again, not a lot of other tri shorts offer this feature.  The material is very pliable, but sturdy.  It has a comfortable drawstring for the waist.  Just a great all around short for any event and training.  They are also chlorine resistant, which makes for an excellent training short.

  • 12/14/2012 Great short, but consider 1 size smaller

    rating star By thelandmarc

    I have incorporated these as a training short in the off season.  Now that I have used them some, I will probably used them for longer races in the coming season. The TYR chamois is significantly larger than others such as the Blue Seventy. It takes some getting used to, but may prove beneficial for longer rides. They are very comfortable to wear. The legs dots are very nice. I wear a medium from most manufacturers, but I will order a small next time.  Overall, a great short when it's on sale.

  • 8/29/2012 Great Product

    rating star By Andrew

    Bought this for my first triathlon.  The leg grippers were fantastic and proved to be comfortable and prevent chafing for both my training and the race itself.  The short is comfortable to wear for extended periods and has convenient pockets hidden within.

  • 6/4/2012 Terrific shorts

    rating star By Christopher D.

    Fits beautifully and functions well.  Has survived usage both in open water and indoor lap pool.  Worked great in transition, dried quickly & absolutely no discomfort during bike or run legs of my recent sprint triathlon.  Would recommend to anyone looking to race in triathlons.

    rating star By tommy du

    purchased these  tri shorts to use in my first duathlon, i was very pleased, they felt comfortable for the run / they gave me great comfort during the bike ride.the shorts stay in place during the ride due to elastic bands/ so the pants do not ride up your legs.

Founded in Southern California in 1985, TYR™ has since developed a reputation for high-quality products and equipment. TYR competition swimwear and triathlon gear have been a dominant force in their respective industries. The company is also known for its TYR goggles, swim apparel, triathlon wetsuits and a wide variety of swimming equipment.

TYR was the first company to introduce a pair of goggles designed to fit a woman's face (the TYR T-72). TYR was also responsible for the famous red bathing suits featured on the hit television series "Baywatch." TYR consults with current and former athletes when developing its products. Swimmers know that TYR is a leader in swimsuits, warm-up suits, and swim training equipment. The TYR Tracer Series is one of the most advanced technical suit lines on the market. The TYR Hurricane wetsuits and the TYR Torque collections include top-of-the-line suits for the competitive swimmer.

TYR has also moved into competitive running equipment. From running shirts to shorts, its apparel is designed with the runner in mind. Built with moisture wicking fabric and antimicrobial material, TYR running apparel is designed to give the athlete the most comfortable, dry clothing on the market.

The name "TYR" is derived from the Norse god of warriors, who is said to have embodied victory and glory. Much the same can be said about the athletes who started TYR. Executive Vice President, Steve Furniss, was an Olympian who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Summer Games, and captained the 76th U.S. Olympic Swim Team.
