2014 Riviera Tri Short has the Patent Pending Integrated Riviera Ceramico™ 7mm Pad. This pad floats and stretches which means it can be used as a race piece in a triathlon. On the bike, the pad stretches with the short and follows your skin as it moves with every pedal stroke, eliminating the friction that can cause irritation or rashes.
The Riviera Tri Short is a long distance short for the serious triathlete looking for performance, substantial padding, and a streamline compressive short. It features our Forza Compressor™ double legband for maximum support in your hamstrings and quadriceps.
There are two Waterlid™ Pockets to hold all of your race fuel or gear while competing or on a training ride or run.
The low cut body of the short is made of Liftfoil™ with coldBlack™. These panels offer a number of benefits:
- To improve the durability. Yes, this fabric is more durable, which is important in an area where you will be rubbing against a saddle and where some people's thighs rub together.
- To keep the modesty panel, well, modest. This fabric is not diaphanous at all (meaning not see-through). Something we all appreciate not involuntarily seeing on others.
- To make this tri short faster in non-wetsuit races. Liftfoil™ is our swimskin fabric. The addition of these panels on the front and back makes this tri short faster, and have no adverse affects when worn with a wetsuit.
This item is not designed for repeated use as a swim suit in a chlorinated pool.
