BRANCHING WELL beyond its traditional headgear, Buff has introduced a new triathlon short, dubbed the Mixer. With its tri padding the ‘Mixer’ is the


perfect marriage of freedom of movement and support. The triathlon inspired chamois provides padding for cycling and sitting in plastic boats while adventure racing, yet due to its shape will remain discreet for the run. Thanks to its reflective, bonded seams adventures can be taken into the night. At £63.40, the quick wicking garment


carries ventilation down the sides for optimal moisture management, while flat lock seams ensure that no panel chafes. Sizes range small through double extra large. 01707 852244
