Do your swimsuits/tri-suits start to go baggy after a few months having been used in a chlorine environment? Then there are a few simple things you can do to extend the life of the product.
A Tenola tri-suit has been designed to be used in each discipline of triathlon (swimming, cycling, running). The tri-suit, can be a single or two piece, to wear throughout an triathlon competition.
