The Forza Trisuit has many intricate details of appearance, comfort, and fit we have spent years in refining. Most notably, our Compressor™ double legband. Your hamstrings and quadriceps will thank you for the incredible support. This suit also features our Invisipad™, a quick-drying, thin, unobstructive, fleece tripad suspended from the inside to offer support and comfort without the appearance of a pad.
This suit has 5 utility pockets for your racing needs, 16-inch YKK® front zipper, Curvilinear™ seamlines, and contrast flatstitch. It is made of Forza Compressor™ legs, Skin Cooler™ Stretch panels and Carrera™ Skin torso (see Fabric Facts). Swim, bike, and run in comfort without changing. Race with it under your wetsuit!
De Soto's White Forza Trisuit is not just white! It is made of De Soto's latest innovative fabric called Shield del Sol™– This is a smooth version of Forza Compressor fabric. It is white but unlike other white fabrics, it is not diaphanous (this mean see-through). You cannot see through it at all. Press your finger up against it and you will see what we mean! Due to its opacity, it will offer more sun protection than any other white fabric in the world. Independent UVB testing is currently being done. We intentionally put black panels in the crotch area to avoid saddle stains and for a more flattering appearance.
This item is not designed for repeated use as a swim suit in a chlorinated pool.
Inseam lengths: XS-9", S-10", M-10.5", L-11", XL-11.5"
Our Limited Edition version of this style celebrates the 21 years since the birth of this cool little company in the sport of Triathlon. De Soto has been one of the most innovative, progressive, and defining triathlon companies ever to exist. Yet we remain a small business and it has stayed this way for a couple of reasons; so that our customers feel like they own something special that not everyone else has, and so that we can take better care of our customers.
Legendary Jazz musician, Miles Davis, named his 1957 compilation album "Birth of Cool." The album consisted of arrangements that were so innovative, so progressive and so defining, that to this day it is considered one of the most influential jazz albums of all time. Not known by many unless they are really into jazz, De Soto is not known by many unless they are really into triathlon. We like it this way and we hope you do too. We have never wanted to be the biggest, just the coolest.
- Is it normal for the black bottoms of this suit to appear a little bit grey when they get wet?
The black bottoms of this suit change color ever so slightly due the the reflective nature of the black fabric. This reflective affect is caused by a combination of the fibers we use and how we knit them together. This is what keeps the garment cool in hot weather even though it is black. While they may appear a bit grey when wet, especially when insideout, they still look black to most people seeing you.
