Great fit and quality material / manufacturing. Used the Riviera tri short for my long training days leading up to IM Maryland. The pad is comfortable on the bike and not noticeable on the run. Highly recommend these shorts for long distance training / events.
Made it through my first Ironman 70.3 wearing these shorts, and I wasn't sure what to expect. Wow!! I am pleased to say they were better than expected. These shorts were comfortable on the bike ride and no chafing whatsoever on the run. Looking forward to my next race.
These shorts were great from my recent ironman. Two features stood out for me: (1) There was great padding. Other shorts seemed flimsy, and I doubled up during previous races, but I felt great using these only during the 112 mile bike and (2) I loved the front pocket - great convenience.
