The Lava suit has benefited from asignificant upgrade to fabric used on the upper bodywhich ensures that itoffers maximum breathability, temperature control and freedom of movement. This combined with a supportive compression fabric used on the lower body makes for an extremelyhigh-performance garment. Further attention to detail has then been added to make the suit more comfortable and functional than ever before.

What makes this product different:

  • Premium woven fabricswith water repellent coating toensure maximum performance and comfort throughout the race.
  • Ergonomic panel design, fit and fabrics designed for temperature control.
  • Extremely high quality, Iron Performance pad byCytech. Crucial for IM distances.
  • High-end Italian leg grippers for maximum comfort and support throughout the race.
  • Large, functional pocket design for race-day nutrition


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.

    Masterpiece of a Trisuit

    The trisuit looks really nice, the white surfaces are opaque. The leg ends are very comfortable and do not slip while running. The pad is a bit thicker, which is great for long distances on the bike. When I tried it on, I thought the pad would interfere while running because it was noticeable when walking. But when you run, you don't feel it at all. The zipper on the back is easy to open and close. It doesn't bother me that there is no zipper at the front, on the contrary: I have quite large ******* and so the trisuit fits perfectly.

    Great fit and comfort, looks good too

    Found arms to be tight, restricting swim movement

    Comfort is second to none

    A lovely suit for people who are less endowed, would have liked to keep but didn't quite fit and had to return.

    Guter Anzug

    Der Trisuit ist angenehm zu tragen und sitzt sehr gut. Er entspricht voll dem Dargestelltem Bild. Die doppelte Stoffschicht im Brustbereich macht ihn dort etwas stabiler und vor allem blickdicht, jedoch ist er dort dann auch nicht besonders Luftdurchlässig. Wer einen Sport BH trägt bräuchte diese extra Schicht nicht, so dass auch ich sie entfernt habe. Zudem fände ich auch für das Frauenmodell einen Frontreissverschluss sinnvoll.

    Looks great, performs better!

    One of the most comfortable tri-suits I've ever worn. The white top to the trip suit makes me easy to spot in the crowd of triathletes that usually wear black and dark colours (and is double layered, so you get no show-through). But the performance was outstanding. Having the zip at the back, makes it super comfortable over all disciplines. Once on, it feels like you're wearing nothing, and yet supports you compressively whilst you perform. There's no restriction across any part of the tri suit, felt super aero, fast through the water and air. The chamois although substantial enough for long distances on the bike, couldn't feel it whilst swimming or running, and dried super quick. No chaffing, nice neckline, perfect length sleeves. Leg and sleeve cuff grippers held the suit in place without being able to feel them.
