Description

Aeroforce Soft-Touch, arevolutionaryFrenchwoven fabric is used on the main front and back panels and is extremely comfortable against the skinandtechnically advanced.It is one of the most expensive performance fabrics on the market, but once you have tried it you will understand why.

Each fabric carefully chosen and positioned to improve performance, comfort and endurance while the Balanced Compression is provided through the legs thanks to a carefully designed panel shape and the high denier rating of the Sensory fabric. This ultimately improves muscle support and helps to increase the blood flow away from the legs, therefore reducing the amount of lactic acid build up and helping to improve endurance and stamina.
With brand new ‘Iron Performance’ pad: Designed by Cytech, one of the World’s leading pad manufacturers in Italy, it is probably one of the most important aspects of racing this distance is being comfortable on the saddle. Perforated pad lamination delivers supreme breathability and quick drying capabilities. The high-density foam gives more padding and protection when cycling and the central channelling in the perinea area is designed to offset pressure points. The high level of elasticity in the pad also maximises freedom of movement when swimming and running. Described by 220 Magazine as being "remarkably good on the saddle".


Nutrition storage on each side of the legs and nice big pockets on the back to stock up on nutrition and make it easy to access whilst on the bike or run.
Premium Italian leg grippers which are ultra soft and wide give even pressure distribution and added comfort over the silicone style grippers. These are stitched to the bottom of the leg material rather than inside to create a more comfortable fit and do a fantastic job of preventing any movement during the cycle and run.


A comfort fit design throughout the body and neck together with slightly wider shoulder panels for increased protection from the sun while the white colour used on the majority of the top to help reflect the sun’s heat.
Elastic Technology and binding gives a snug fit without any discomfort around the arms and neck lines. Also, new seam construction prevent chafing under the arm.


Front semi-auto lock zipper for extra ventilation during the cycle or run.
Total Zip protection: Soft fabrics are used to cover the inside of the zipper and this is combined with 'fold over' cover to minimise any discomfort from the zip on the chest.

Perfect fit for a tall triathlete

The suit fitted me perfectly and I often find all in one suits too short as I am very tall. Dried really quick after swimming and super comfortable on the bike. Great product.

Happy with my Trip Suit

this was my first purchase for a half marathon so was unsure on fit or feel. I am very tall but slim so went with the XL. It is a little tight around the shoulders but great fit everywhere else, most products seem to get wider as you get taller but this one does a good job. Bike pad is thin but comfortable for 3hr + rides.
