Key Features

  • Premium fabrics ensure maximum performance and comfort throughout the race.

  • Extremely high quality Iron Performance pad byCytech. Crucial for IM distances.

  • Ergonomic panel design, fit and fabric locations designed for temperature control.

  • Functional pocket design for race day nutrition.

  • High end Italian leg grippers for maximum comfort and support throughout the race.

  • An extremely smooth and soft fabric that feels fantastic against the skin, it provides extra support and compression on the legs together with afull water repellent coating.The fabricis highly breathable and sweat wicking, while the 360º stretch ensure total freedom of movement.

  • Super snug waistband- A 3.5cm elastic waistband has been added on to the shorts for an extremely comfortable and supportive fit. No drawstring cord to prevent chafing.

  • Balanced Compressionis provided through the legs thanks to a carefully designed panel shape and the high denier rating of theSensory fabric. This 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 your endurance and stamina.

  • Brand new‘Iron Performance’ pad designed byCytech, one of the World’s leading pad manufacturers in Italy. Probably one of the most important aspects of racing this distance is being comfortable on the saddle. The innovative perforated pad lamination delivers supreme breathability and quick drying capabilities. Thehigh-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.

  • Designedto sit slightly higher on the waist then a normal Tri Short to ensure coverage on the back whilst in the Aeroposition.

  • Nutrition storagepockets on each side of the legs for easy access whilst on the bike or run

  • Rear pocket: Also, a new rear zipped pocket perfect for valuables or nutrition which need a more secure fit during the swim and can be eaten on the way to T1.

  • Premium Italian leg grippers– New, ultra soft wide grippers 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.

  • Stylish Flat locked stitching: Designed for maximum strength and minimum discomfort against the skin.

The Lava shorts and Top have taken a lot of research and development to get them to where they are today. Racing this distance is no easy task so we hope that these shorts will help you every step of the way. Full suits also available if preferred toseparates.

    Sizing is correct.

    Bought these as I needed new cycling shorts, these are great and true to size, the legs don’t ride during exercise which is spot on. My only minor issue hence not giving 5 stars is the seat pad could run a little wider on the undercarriage as I did chaff a little. Chamois cream prevented further chafing. But for the price totally happy
