Our Femme Riviera Tri Short is better than ever! It now features a 6mm quick-drying, moisture-wicking triathlon pad for ultimate comfort in the saddle and will go virtually unnoticed during the run. 

Sizing: Please refer to the size chart button above for sizing guidance. 
Fit Type: Compressive
Fit Note: Please do not assume your size is the same as previous years, please use our size chart and if in doubt, email us: Triathlon apparel is meant to fit next-to-skin. This is to eliminate potential chafing, and unnecessary drag during the swim, bike and run. If you’re not comfortable with this type of fit and or are between sizes, we recommend sizing up. Garment will fit the most snug the first time you put it on, it will relax slightly once wet.
Customer feedback indicates sizing down if you are between sizes.

I usually don’t do reviews but these shorts are so awesome I couldn’t wait to comment . They are the most comfortable I’ve ever worn and since I ride a recumbent with my feet slightly elevated, my phone is in the handy pocket and the “pillow case” flap keeps the phone from falling out. I am telling all my friends! Thank you for a truly high quality product. (I needed a size larger than than I usually wear.)

Great short

I have been a long time user of the 400-mile short (the older version), and since they offer quite a bit of compression, they got a little tight when I gained some weight after an injury. And now that I'm not doing routine 100+ mile rides, I was looking for something a little more "lightweight". These Riviera shorts are perfect. A great length, perfect padding, awesome pockets, and form fitting, but not ungodly tight. I have done several 30-40 mile rides in these and love them. Have not yet tried them for a swim to bike to run transition, but have been caught in a downpour of a rain and was soaked and the short did not lose any of its form with the water. Looking forward to racing with this.



Love the chamois, cute design options, great fit and big pockets! So much good to say about these. The chamois is seamless (literally) keeps me comfortable for those century+ rides and is just right to follow the ride with a 26.2 mile run. They are easy to swim in for the open water swimmers. Love the pockets for items like salts, energy bars, phone, whatever. It’s big enough without the bulk or drag. I’m 5’4” 123lbs with monster thighs and wear size Small. I’ve already placed an order for more. I’ve got to have them & will race in them.

These shorts are fantastic with one exception I do get a little roll down on the waist of the shorts. I do really like them and they are super comfortable on the bike, run, and swim. I would defiantly get another pair
