Zone3 Lava Short Sleeve Trisuit
The Zone3 Lava Short Sleeve Trisuit has been specifically optimised for performance over Ironman distances. Every imperfection is highlighted during these gruelling events, but the Lava Short Sleeve Suit cancels the chances of any irritation and enhances performance via a most comprehensive feature-set.
The suit comprises a blend of three advanced materials to maximise the athletes potential. The drag-reducing Aero-Stripe fabric is used on the upper back and sleeves for improved aerodynamics while the Airforce Soft-Touch material features on the main front and back panels due to its fit retention, and high breathability. The third material is the Sensory fabric, and its compressive weave is employed on the legs to support the muscles and reduce lactic acid accumulation.
The Iron Performance seat pad, manufactured by Cytec, offers ergonomically positioned relief when in the saddle that is crucial for long hours on the bike. Integrated leg grippers stop the legs from riding up while heat bonded, welded and flat-lock seams throughout eliminate the chances of chafing.
Nutrition storage pockets are positioned neatly on the back and grant easy access to bars and gels before a full-length front zip completes the garment by offering adjustable levels of ventilation.
