RIVIERA FLI BIB™ - 2017*

  • 18000


 

The world's first cycling bib and triathlon bibshort with a fly!  Finally, you can have bathroom relief without pulling the straps or undressing.

This 2017 model is now available.

The comfort, performance and functionality you've come to love in our Riviera Tri Shorts and Trisuits but in a Tribib!

 NEW FEATURES:

  • Fli-fly™ hidden fly just above the pad in front for quick on-the-fly bathroom “relief.”
  • 7mm Clasico Integrated Pad is softer with more stretch, no seams (we eliminated the Ceramico beads)
  • Seamless inner thigh eliminates friction
  • 1 inch longer inseam than previous version (RTB)

SAME GREAT FEATURES AS BEFORE:

  • Forza Compressor legs above the Mobius Comfort Compression Leg Bands
  • 3-inch Mobius Comfort Compression Band offers a more equally graduated compression around the legs, so you get the same support with no tightness and sqeezing.
  • Two Waterlid™ Pockets, one on side of each leg, that allow you to swim in this bibshort without a wetsuit.
  • Liftfoil center panels that make swimming in this without a wetsuit faster!
  • Black modesty panels. We intentionally put black panels in the crotch area to avoid saddle stains and for a more flattering appearance.
  • Swim, bike, and run in comfort without changing. Race with it under your wetsuit or without a wetsuit.
  • This environmentally-friendly innovation is completely free of solvents and the dyes used have no VOC.
  • Not recommended for repeated use in a chlorinated pool.
IS THE CLASICO PAD DIFFERENT FROM THE CERAMICO PAD?

Yes, the Clasico Pad different from the Ceramico pad we offered previously.  First lets be clear on what remains the same.  The pad is still the same size, same thickness, same density, and same buoyancy.  It is still an integrated pad, meaning that it all the panels are sewn around the pad, so it has no stitching down the middle.  
The difference is that instead of the ceramic beads which were laminated to fabric that is laminated to the other side of the pad, we opted for covering it with fabric on the outside of the short.  In essence we removed two layers of lamination which caused a perception of stiffness, especially when the short was new.  
The new Clasico Pad looks less obvious, and it also allows the pad to stretch more than the Ceramico pad.  In an effort to keep improving our pads, the Clasico Integrated Pad offers the same padding, but with more stretch in every direction, and more comfort from the first time you wear it.

      This product review is from Dan Empfield of slowtwitch.com: "Whether it is the Forza Tri Bib, or the Riviera Tri Bib, this is the most versatile garment for training I own. I run in this, I nordic ski in this, and of course this is the garment when I race a tri. Partly, I guess it's because when you get to a specific age the specter of the gap between the bottom of the tri top and the trishort is not a pleasant one. Unless you have the physique to pull it off. Which I do not."
