INTRODUCTION

Theaward-winning Lava collection launched in 2013 and is designed specifically with long distance athletes in mind. The top and shorts won the Triathlon 220 Magazines editor's choice award with a 92% rating and the range has been a massive success with Ironman athletes racing all over the world.

Thanks to the popularity of the range, new products have been added and even further research and development has been conducted to ensure maximum performance and comfort. The garment you wear in anIronman event can significantly affect your performance and therefore this rangeis designed to be lightweight, super- comfortable, exceptionally breathable, supportive and functional. New fabrics and features make the latest Lava collection an absolute must-have for anybody racing in long distance events.

The Aero Top is a very useful piece of kit to have in the locker. Event conditions can change quickly and with morelong-course tri events taking place earlier and later in the season this top is designed to help you brave the elements. With 3/4 length sleeves and slightly thicker fabric than the rest of the Lava range this top offers some unique properties which makes it suitable for warm weather races but also perfect as an extra layer or worn by itself in cooler or wet conditions.

 

Description

The top is made from Zone3's Sensory Fabricwhich is effective in a number of ways:

The fabric is extremely smooth and soft to touch meaning it feels fantastic next to the skin, exactly what you would want for such a long event.It is also highly breathable and sweat wicking for optimum temperature control. In warmer conditions the fabric will work to keep you cool, especially when wet. In cooler conditions, it works to maintain body warmth while still ensuring aerodynamics.

We would recommend the Lava Tri Top for hot conditions, the Aero Top for temperate or changeable conditions and a combination of the Lava Tri suit or Tri Top with the Aero Top as the outer layer for cool conditions.

The fabric offers 360o stretch for total freedom of movement and comfort and theoptical white colour helps reflect the suns heat and offers high UPF protection.

 

Key features

  • Aerodynamic fit. The panel design uses minimal number of seams and the front is higher and the back is lower, allowing for optimum comfort and coverage when in the aero position. We would recommend putting it on in T1 rather than wearing on the swim.

 

  • Nutrition storage is maximised with big pockets on the back to stock up on nutrition and make it easy to access while on the bike or run.

 

  • A full front zipperallowing it to be put on and taken off easily and allowingextra airflow and ventilation if required.

    Fantastic triathlon race jersey

    Bought to wear as a race jersey over my short sleeve trisuit. Raced in it over the weekend in a 70.3 and loved it. Great fit, very comfortable, good pockets and felt very aero.

    Aero sun protection for the bike

    I was looking for something for sun protection on the bike for longer distance triathlons and this fits the bill. It's close fitting, very stretchy material, so good aero. The neckline is low, and the sleeves are 3/4, so it will go under a wetsuit OK. The material is soft (not like lycra) & a close weave (non-transparent!) so good for sun, but I see it being a toss up on hotter days between taking the sun reflection versus a having something with more mesh and airflow. Perhaps it would work perfectly on super hot days if you throw some water over yourself every so often. Two large cycle jersey style pockets have plenty of room Too many slight niggles for 5 stars: There's no zip garage which is a little irritating. There is a slight wrinkle at the back of the neck when tucked, so not perfect, but pretty close It is more of a cycling fit too, cut longer at back and shorter at the front, which is great on the bike but if you continue onto the run the front has a tendency to creep up if you've gone two piece. Overall, I see this as something I will use over a regular one piece tri suit for extra warmth and sun protection on the bike, but I would expect to take it off in T2.

    Superb Racing Top

    Bought this for early season sprint races to combat the cold. I found it easy to pull on with wet arms and quick to zip up. Kept out the cold on the bike and extremely aerodynamic. Great product.
