Review: Blueseventy TX2000 tri-suit
Unshowy but will always impress. The Matt Damon of tri-suits
The TX2000 from New Zealand’s swim specialists Blueseventy has been our choice of suit for a few seasons and, like that favourite armchair, it’s reliable, durable and has offered decent padding for the time we’ve spent sitting down.
But, with new suits vying for the dubious honour in 2014, will it continue to grace our bottom? The duo of covered side pockets are pool swim-friendly, suitable for a small gel and are convenient to reach on the bike and run.
The quick-drying, lightweight and ridged chamois provides plenty of bottom coverage for sojourns on the bike and the beaded leg grippers successfully keep the suit in place.
The heat ray reflecting ColdBlack fabric is adept at managing temperature control, too. It may lack the style and excitement of some other suits, but the TX2000 successfully and understatedly gets the job done time and time again.
