Tri gear has to do a lot, but there's never an excuse for obscene chafing halfway into the run. Luckily, though, the California-based TYR's Carbon Women's Tri Tank is the remedy for our discontent. To make the Carbon, TYR incorporated a blend of nylon and spandex. Why' Well, it all comes down to three key components: moisture management, comfort, and stretch.

As a result, you not only benefit from a dry, protective layer, but your skin also remains dry and free from moisture-induced chafing. Meanwhile, the spandex provides a four-way stretch to the material, enabling a complete freedom of movement within the top. Additionally, this allowed stretch enables the material to follow your diverse movements, preventing the top from resisting them.

Accordingly, it possesses a next-to-skin fit that's free from flapping. The armholes have been inset from the shoulder, allowing a complete freedom movement for the arms, and you'll also find that this design eliminates any bunching, binding, or pinching during the locomotion of your swim or run.

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.
