Product Description

The award-winning Lava collection launch 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 an Ironman event can significantly affect your performance and therefore this range is 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.


What makes this product different:

  • Premium fabrics ensure the perfect level of compression, performance and comfort throughout the race.
  • Ergonomic panel design, fit and fabric locations designed for temperature control.
  • Extremely high quality, Iron Performance pad by Cytech. Crucial for IM distances.
  • High end Italian leg grippers for maximum comfort and support throughout the race.
  • Functional pocket design for race day nutrition.


The Tri Shorts:

Just like the Lava Tri Top we have tried to make these shorts as comfortable and as high performance as possible. In 2013, 220 Magazine tested this two piece set and gave it a rating of 92% and the ‘Editor’s choice award’ saying that the shorts were "remarkably good on the saddle". Materials have been carefully chosen to offer the best balance between support and comfort. The key features include


Fabric:

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


Key Features:

  • 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 Compression is provided through the legs thanks to a carefully designed panel shape and the high denier rating of the Sensory 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 by Cytech, 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. 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.
  • Designed to sit slightly higher on the waist then a normal Tri Short to ensure coverage on the back whilst in the Aero position.
  • Nutrition storage pockets 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.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Tri/TT Clothing Guide

What is triathlon clothing?

Triathlon clothing is built for wearing during the running, swimming and cycling of triathlon races. This clothing can be focused on just one element and easy to change out of, or more commonly designed to be suitable for all three sports.

Who needs triathlon clothing?

Anyone training for or competing in triathlons.

What are the choices?

General cycling kit is often appropriate for the amateur triathlete, but as you get more advanced, you might want to invest in a wetsuit or tri suit, or perhaps a separate jersey and shorts.

What should I buy with them?

You can complement your triathlon kit with some normal cycling clothing, particularly for training. Also, don’t forget the aero helmet.

Anything else?

Make sure your tri clothing suits the type of event and distance you’re targeting. For longer events you may be happy to switch outfits during transition, but for short, fast tri races, you will want to go for an all-round tri suit or wetsuit.
