Introduction 

The award-winning Lava collection was launched in 2013 and is designed specifically with long distance athletes in mind. The top and shorts won the Triathlon 220 Magazine Editor’s choice award with a 92% rating and the range has been a massive success with Ironman athletes racing all over the world. 

Thanks to the popularity of the range, new products have been added and even further research and development has been conducted to ensure maximum performance and comfort. The garment you wear in an Ironman event can significantly affect your performance and therefore this range is designed to be lightweight, super- comfortable, exceptionally breathable, supportive and functional. New fabrics and features make the latest Lava collection an absolute must-have for anybody racing in long distance events. 

 

DESCRIPTION: 

 

Our priorities when designing this top were:  

 

  1. Comfort 
  1. Easy access to pockets for nutrition 
  1. Lightweight 
  1. Breathable and Protective 

 

The top of the range fabric used on the Lava tri top offers maximum breathability, temperature control and freedom of movement. Further attention to detail has then been added to make the suit as comfortable as possible. An eye-catching print makes the top look fantastic before, during and after the event.  

Key benefits include: 

  • Aeroforce Soft-Touch - A revolutionary woven fabric from France is used on the main front and back panels and is extremely comfortable against the skin and technically advanced. It is one of the most expensive performance fabrics on the market, but once you have tried it you will understand why.  
  • Extremely breathable and sweat wicking for optimum temperature control.  
  • Incredible lightweight and quick drying whilst still being durable and offering a UPF 50+ protection  
  • 360° stretch for total freedom of movement.  
  • A high-tech water repellent coating for drag resistance both in and out of the water and to repel sweat whilst on the go. Also, a very useful feature if it rains on the bike section, helping to keep you drier and warmer. 
  • This is a market-leading fabric which is used by a very high proportion of pro athletes. Comfort is crucial during a long-distance race and as soon as you feel this fabric against your skin you'll understand why it is a key feature in the range.  

 

Other performance features include:  

  1. Nutrition storage is maximised with big pockets on the back to stock up on nutrition and make it easy to access whilst on the bike or run. 
  1. Comfort fit design throughout the body and neck together with slightly wider shoulder panels for increase protection from the sun.  
  1. Length - Designed to slightly overlap with the Tri shorts which gives the impression of wearing a suit, but with the versatility of wearing shorts and top. The top is also longer at the back compared to the front to ensure good coverage, especially in the Aero position. 
  1. Optical white colour used on the majority of the top to help reflect the suns heat. 
  1. Elastic Technology and binding gives a snug fit without any discomfort around the arms and neck lines. Also, new seam construction to prevent any chafing under the arm. 
  1. Stylish Flat locked stitching: Designed for maximum strength and minimum discomfort against the skin. 
  1. No front zipper for maximum comfort next to the skin. 

Together with the Lava Tri Shorts, this collection is designed to keep you as comfortable as possible from start to finish.
