So my Huub DS long course suit is see through on the ass.
As I’ve only worn it five times in anger I’m loathe to buy a new one.
So - what can I buy to wear underneath it during a triathlon?
No chamois pad? Or a light chamois?
2XU used to do an awesome pair of slight compression shorts with a small chamois pad - I wore these for the Outlaw back in 2010 and had no issues with them at all.
Only time I’ve done double shorts is tri shorts under cycling shorts when it’s really cold. For running in two pads might be a bit uncomfortable, so you may want an inner short without a pad. But then you might have seams next to the skin that rub on the bike
That’s what you get for buying Huub You’re going to need a thin pad, otherwise the seams will chafe like fook on the bike!
Surely a suave chap like you can afford to buy a new suit? My Stolen Goat one is lursh. Not sure how robust though; only got used twice in 2019. I also have a Castelli Sanremo Free suit, which is very comfortable and robust; but the legs are a bit short on it (although I wear quad sleeves for longer Tris).
in a sort of ‘how could a bloke in lycra possibly look good kind of way’?! haha
I find it a bit disturbing that my kids have totally normalised the sight of me poncing around in a pair of bib shorts (with mandatory HRM of course - got to look the biz) and nothing else! Though the eldest likes to tell me that my belly sticks out and over the front of my new Castelli ones. Not a flattering cut for anyone over 60kgs i must say!!
