Short-Sleeved Triathlon Top - Black Pearl Design


The Ciao Bella sleeved triathlon top in the Black Pearl Design is so, so comfy. I had this designed to go from the swim to the bike to the run in one fell swoop. The Italian fabric is buttery soft, breathable, and quick-drying. If you look at the armpits, I’ve made sure we don’t have any bothersome seams to rub you the wrong way when swimming or running. I’ve taken this top out on so many tests and have to say, it’s sublime. Elastic loops are hidden underneath on the inside of the top. Those elastic loops attach to hooks on the shorts so you won’t need to tug as much when training or racing to keep it in place. I recommend using them just on the run to keep the top in place due to a lot of tugging on the hook on the bike with each pedal stroke, which adds to stress to the fabric. Nobody needs more stress. And, if you don’t want to use them, they just stay tucked away. The waistband is super grippy, too. The top has two pockets in the back for easy access to your smaller tri necessities. This top is meant to be worn tight, so if you want a little breathing room, order one size up.
