Clydes Tri-Suit

Does anyone know where I can get a 3x tri suit in America? The only places I found on google are in the UK.

Thanks in advance,
Posit

+1 on aerotechdesigns but think they only carry tri shorts and not the suits.

Yo may also want to try posting in the Triathlon forum here as well as http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/di...ew.asp?fid=1#s

Good luck to ya & if you are successful, let us know where you found them.

Yeah I'm looking for a tri suit not tri shorts. Those are my last resort.

Try on a Rocket Science suit, if there's a dealer near you. (You can also order online) Their swimming speed/tech suits fit big, so a lot of people have had to order a size smaller than the charts say they should take. The tri suits seem to be made of the same material, so maybe they'll fit big as well.

look for TYR tri suits. i am 5'9" 265 pounds and my gut at its largest is 54 inches. i was able to fit in a XXL splice with no problems. i would say that any larger in the gut area i would go with a XXXL. also the TYR runners belt fit just fine as well with plenty to go. these are all things that i did not know when i was shopping for suits.

i got mine at swimoutlet.com

Well I am 6 feet I weigh around 290, I wear 2x shirts and shorts, but my bike shirt is a 4x. I figured tri clothing would run small like bike clothing.
