Equator Swim Shorts
Lightweight technical shorts built for the heat and the water.
- Material embedded with skin-cooling thermoreactive microparticles
- Highly elastic with 31% elastane
- Ultra soft antibacterial lining
So the Equator Swim Shorts are built to keep you comfortable in all 40,000km of one of the most extreme environments we currently inhabit. Each pair is embedded with thermoreactive microparticles – a skin-cooling technology invented for elite triathletes. And with every detail designed for the heat and water, they’re fast drying, highly elastic, and come with an ultra soft and breathable antibacterial lining to help keep you cool when the world is trying to heat you up.
Invisible technology combats extreme heat
Built to work under stress from water, heat, sweat and rapidly changing environments, thermoreactive microparticles are embedded directly into the material to help cool your skin. Made from bioceramics, they interact with body heat to generate far-infrared light, which promotes blood flow by improving venous microcirculation. This encourages your body to thermoregulate, lowering your chances of overheating. Since the microparticles are fused into the material they won’t rub off or wash out.
Italian technology designed for elite athletes
The material starts life at a cutting-edge lab next to three of Italy’s most iconic lakes – Como, Lugano and Maggiore. It’s here that some of the most advanced performance materials on the planet are being developed (and where clients include Tour de France cyclists). Advances in material technology are now helping riders cope with rising temperatures in what’s already one of the world’s most brutal races.
Water repellent and fast drying
The shorts are treated with a durable water repellent coating that’s completely free from toxic fluorocarbons. Ocean spray will simply roll off them. And the same technology means the shorts dry rapidly out of the water, especially in direct sunlight.
Tested against sea water and chlorine
The materials we’ve worked with are tested and protected against degradation caused by both saltwater and chlorine. So they’re built to handle long days out in the water, whether that’s at the pool or somewhere deep in the Pacific Ocean.
Two side pockets and a hidden key pocket
You’ll find two open pockets at the sides of the shorts. The pockets are lined with the same super soft, stretchy and breathable mesh to keep air flowing around your body. Integrated into the mesh of the right pocket there’s a small hidden pocket, for securely storing a key.
Size + Fit
The Equator Shorts are designed with a mid-length fit.
