Castelli built the Body Paint 2 Tri Shorts to meet the age-old challenge of finding shorts that can handle all three triathlon disciplines. These shorts have seamless, single-piece construction to slice through water and air without any pesky drag from fabric bunching at seams. The Body Paint 2s are made of soft, lightweight Lycra for a streamlined fit and include Castelli's triathlon-specific Kiss3 chamois designed to keep you comfy both on the bike and on the run.
- Kiss3 chamois

- Speed hooks to integrate with Body Paint tri top

I have biked for years, but ran my first ever TRI and decided it would be an Ironman. So, I ordered MED (typical bike sized clothes) and they were too small; reordered LRG which Backcountry got to me just in time to travel to event. The shorts were very comfortable at the waist and around the legs. The padding was comfortable during the bike but not noticeable during the swim and run. I washed these once prior to wearing and wore them the first time during the event. (I know a cardinal don't do it, but I didn't have much of choice) No chaffing or other issues; finished my first TRI from the couch wearing the shorts that day for the first time. Would recommend to all, just watch the sizing.
Do these have a pocket on the back? It looks like it in the picture, but I can't tell for sure.

These shorts have a 9 inch inseam.
