So I have several of CEP's compression socks and absolutely love them. I am planning on buying their running tights since their design looks great and they get some nice reviews regarding their functionality.
CEP also makes a triathlon short and I was actually considering those as well. I have my first ironman this august and was actually planning on making a complete change in T1 and T2 to get more comfortable on the bike. But after doing a HIM in a pair of triathlon shorts (with real padding not just a piece of fabric to prevent shafing) and feeling great the entire race I am considering doing the full with the same setup.
My question is if anyone have tried a longer competition in the CEP tri shorts (I have to buy them online so can't see how much padding is in them)? Also what are your thoughts on doing that long a competition (as a beginner) in the same suit...
