This 2014 model has the Patent Pending Integrated Forza-Fino Ceramico™ 4mm Pad.This pad floats and stretches which means it can be used as a race piece in a triathlon. On the bike, the pad stretches with the short and follows your skin as it moves with every pedal stroke, eliminating the friction that can cause irritation or rashes.
The Forza Trishort is by far one of the single most popular trishorts in the world. It is the foundation which started the entire compression industry dating back to 1997, when De Soto Sport was asked to test compression fabrics for the Dupont Textile Company.
The Forza Trishort has solid black Liftfoil™ center panels for comfort and durability!
We added the Liftfoil™ panels in the center for a number of reasons:
- To improve the durability. Yes, this fabric is more durable, which is important in an area where rubbing occurs 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 Liftfoil™ Speed Trisuit is made entirely out of this swimskin fabric. The addition of these panels on the front and back not only makes this trishort faster, but they eliminate any adverse affects when worn with a wetsuit.
This short is regular rise and sits high on the hips. The Forza Compressor™ legs have no binding gripper elastic on the bottom, so they are more comfortable on long rides, yet they stay in place have the 3-inch double-legband. Your hamstrings and quadriceps will thank you for the incredible support. The entire Forza Trishort is sewn with a proprietary flat stitch which provides increased aerodynamics and durability over the life of the product.
It is made of Forza Compressor™ (see Fabric Facts) and is great for non-wetsuit races. Swim, bike, and run in comfort without changing.
This item is not designed for repeated use as a swim suit in a chlorinated pool.
