Our Riviera Short has the lowest rise offered. This short was built for the triathlete that’s looking for a low-cut, hydrodynamic, fast tri short. Shorts are ideal for non-wetsuit legal swims (WCT, USAT and ITU legal) as the two Waterlid pockets will not add drag, yet provide storage solutions on the bike and run.
Forza Compressor leg panels help reduce delayed onset muscle fatigue. Liftfoil3 center panels improve durability and make swimming without a wetsuit faster! Longer, 3-inch Mobius Comfort Compression Leg Band offers equally graduated compression around the legs, you get the same support with no tightness and squeezing. Previous model had 2-inch leg band.
7mm Clasico Integrated Pad replaces the older version Ceramico pad. The pad is the same size, thickness, density, and buoyancy. It is still an integrated pad, meaning that all the panels are sewn around the pad, it has no stitching down the middle. 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 allows the pad to stretch more than the previous Ceramico pad.
Seamless inner thigh eliminates friction. 1 inch longer inseam than previous version (RTS1). 9.5″ inseam on size medium. Mid to low-rise waist band with an adjustable drawstring. Two Waterlid Pockets – one on side of each leg. These pockets are hydrodynamic when swimming without a wetsuit and provide storage solutions for the bike and run.
This enviro-friendly innovation is completely free of solvents. Not recommended for repeated use in a chlorinated pool. Made in USA.
