Power, endurance, will-power--whatever you choose to call it, you need it in spades to get through a triathlon.

To eliminate abrasion and chafing, the shorts use flatlock seams throughout. The Tri Power Laser shorts also include Louis Garneau's tri-specific Tri Air chamois. This chamois differs f...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
