Kit review: The Threo triathlon suit

In a nutshell, Threo kit is a great choice for women tempted to change up their running routine and dip their toes into the triathlon-world of the swim, cycle and run. 

Kit review: The Threo triathlon suit

Whether you're tempted by a sprint triathlon or have an Ironman in your calendar, the Threo suit aims to keep you comfortable in the water, on the bike and on the road. The brains behind Threo have created a compression fabric that helps to magically reduce muscular strain and decrease the production of lactic acid. We put it to the test at an Olympic sprint.

First impressions

Looks aren’t everything when it comes to what you’re wearing in a race. Yet it definitely pays to feel confident and comfortable, especially if you feel like a Bond lady. Upon first glance the playful colourways grabbed our attention with flashes of yellow and red, as did the striking geometrical pattern. 

We love a gadget

There's a lot of kit to consider on race-day. Yet the kind folks at Threo have given you one less thing to think about with an integrated race number belt. With easy-click poppers you can switch your number quickly from back to front on the bike and run transition. 

Sneaky storage

Say hello to handy back-pockets ready for keeping any energy bars or gels on hand. For those that prefer to keep their mid-race nutrition up-front there's also a cheeky concealed pocket on the inner left shoulder.

Well cushioned

A combination of time on your bike-saddle followed by running on the road means you need ample support for your behind but without too much bulk. These are two boxes that Threo tick, with enough cushion for your ride without feeling like you're carrying any extra weight.

Support

As a lady, not wearing a sports bra for a race that involves unavoidable gravity can be a little daunting for your bosom. But fear not. Designed with women in mind, ample support is one of the strongest points of this design with a jersey lining across the chest that doesn't restrict your movement.

The verdict  

A tri-suit that's easy on the eyes, gives support in all the right places and keep any irritation to a minimum with details such as flatlock seams. Whether you're training for your first triathlon or racing for the podium, this suit is a great investment for an adventurous triathlon career.
