If you’ve always wanted a comfortable and controlling racing shirt that stays dry, in place and doesn’t irritate, pleasant to wear whatever the outside temperature and helps you breathe better…Then look no further, COMPRESSPORT® has engineered it for you! And just like all the COMPRESSPORT® products, the TRIATHLON SHIRT has been designed, tested and produced, not only to be comfortable and pleasant to wear but also to allow athletes to be at the top of their performance!
Pleasant to wear :
For optimum comfort, the microfibre body of the TRIATHLON SHIRT is seamless, lightweight and very soft. Away with irritation and rubbing in sensitive areas. Its V-neck fits all sizes thereby preventing any discomfort around the neck.
Optimum thermoregulation :
Its one-of-a-kind weave enhances air circulation giving rise to an optimum outside/inside balance. Therefore the body is always at the same temperature with no sudden surges or drops. Genuine protection in winter from the cold and in summer from the heat – it will become your second skin.
Always dry !
The water-repellent fibre evacuates perspiration without absorbing it even when excessive. No more uncomfortable heavy, damp clothing that irritates and doesn’t dry.
And always fresh!
The targeted fabric-mesh layout allows for ventilation of special zones contributing to accelerated refreshing of the body and guaranteed accelerated evacuation of damp. The mesh structure on the shoulders evacuates body heat and perspiration meaning you stay dry regardless of the outside temperature and the intensity and duration of effort.
Special bacteriostatic and anti-odour fibre
The special fibre ensures effective protection from bacteria and naturally prevents unpleasant odors and irritations from developing. The efficacy remains even after several washes.

1/ Fred, how long have you been using compression clothing?
Since 2009, in fact after a stress fracture on my right calf !
2/ How do you feel when you use the Compressport range before, during and after the effort and during your trips?
During training and competitions, I can feel for sure they help to absorb the shocks but also keeping the blood circulating. A very nice feeling, never cramping or sore, just perfect to me! And in hot conditions they can even keep my calf muscles cooler because of the protection (white) reflecting the sun. Some water on them, gives you a fresher feeling as well. After races or on really hard training camps I use them a lot, especially the Full Legs. The best way to recover for me!
For trips, long rides or flights, it’s the best! Before I tend to have swollen legs a lot of times and since I use the Compressport Full Socks, my legs stay exactly the same after the trip compared to my legs before the trip.
3/ Do you remember any race or training where the Compressport range has made a crucial difference (in terms of injuries, performance and or recovery)?
For sure in Hawaii Ironman, the hardest endurance race on this planet, in 2012and 2013. Before 2012, I always wore the compression only on the marathon and the bike part without. Legs were a lot sorer then and muscles were warmer and suffered more because of the sun. In 2012 I decided, because of that, to put them on in T1 (transition swim to bike). So I rode the full 180km with +the marathon! What a difference: 3rd place at Hawaii in 2012 and now in 2013, Ironman World Champion!
