Completely re-designed based on your feedback. New demanded features include: front zipper, no internal bra because after all, we all have our favorite bra anyway (but we suggest our Forza Support Bra), longer inseam with full compression to keep those hamstring and quads fresh and thicker Float Pad, which provides a little more comfort for those longer races, but doesn't bulk up or cause unwanted heaviness. 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. This piece is completely compression and made entirely of our finest Forza fabric.
Three pockets - one on the back and one on each back leg for all of your fuel needs!

- What is the SPF/UPF rating for this product?
To date, in the USA there are still no federal regulations for SPF, or UPF ratings in clothing.
Although many manufacturers list SPF/UPF ratings on their clothing tags, they are doing so in a very biased and unwarranted manner. You see, there is not yet an accreditation process to regulate these claims in the USA. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), together with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) are currently exploring the many outside influences on fabrics, such as salt and chlorinated water, stretch, and durability to determine a standard for clothing in relation to sun protection.
So, if a company sells you on their SPF/UPF rated products and says you do not need to wear sunscreen, they will be lying to you just to make a sale.
That said, our fabrics have been tested for their effectiveness against UVB rays by an independent organization. The Skin Cooler fabrics we created block 75% of UVB rays. This is why we recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen's SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation, the rays that cause sunburn. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and/or avobenzone.
We have had all our fabrics tested by an independent testing service and they found that our Forza Fabric blocks 75% of UVB rays.
