2014 Riviera Trishort has the Patent Pending Integrated Riviera Ceramico™ 7mm Pad.
The Riviera Trishort 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 Water Lid™ 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 trishort faster in non-wetsuit races. Liftfoil™ is our swimskin fabric. The addition of these panels on the front and back makes this trishort faster, and have no adverse affects when worn with a wetsuit.
DE SOTO CERAMICO PAD - PATENT PENDING No. 72551-20001.00
Ceramico™ is a polyurethane based coating embedded to the outside of pad with rock-hard ceramic beads. You actually see these beads on the outside of the pad, and therefore, from the outside of the garment!. The Integrated pad is sewn onto the surrounding panels, instead of inside the short, so there is no fabric covering the pad, and so there are no seams on any part of where you sit. The inside of the pad is a soft plush fiber that stretches with the short and follows your skin as it moves on the bike and run, eliminating the friction that can cause irritation or rashes. Since the pad floats, you will not be bogged down if you chose to wear this garment under a wetsuit for a long race. This environmentally-friendly innovation is completely free of solvents.
This item is not designed for repeated use as a swim suit in a chlorinated pool.
