Features and Benefits.
- 1" (2.54cm) lower rise than previous models making it more of a regular rise than a high rise - sits just below the hip bones.
- 4mm Clasico Integrated Pad provides comfort on the bike and goes unnoticed on the run
- Seamless inner thigh eliminates friction and increases durability
- Forza Compressor fabric provides support and helps reduce delayed onset muscle soreness
- 3-inch Mobius™ Comfort Compression leg-bands keep short in place without tight constriction
- Solid black Liftfoil™ center panels provide comfort and durability
- Four Pockets, two on each outer thigh, one above the other, made of Forza Compressor fabric to store training and racing essentials. If the pockets are empty there is zero drag at speeds of 5mph (8kph) or less. The fastest triathletes in the world do not swim 5 mph.
- Curvilinear™ seamlines, and contrast flatstitch offer support, comfort and both aerodynamic and hydrodynamic advantages; making it great for non-wetsuit races

- Swim, bike, and run in comfort without changing. Wears well under your wetsuit! Use in Triathlons

I have been doing Triathlon for over 12 years, and gone through a lots of gear. I am very happy I have found DeSoto clothing.
Best Tri shorts ever!! I wear them even on long rides without a run!
Excellent technology. They fit really tight compared to other model of same size (eg, Carrera).
Love Desoto and these are excellent. My 4th pair and I keep coming back for a reason!
That is a great product. Very comfortable. Pad is thin but it really provides a surprising comfort, either running or ridding a bike. Forza Tri-Short has given exactly the compression I hoped for a quality triathlon short. It could be even better if the back side, at the waist, was a little higher, no more than 1 cm (small size). But it was not anything significant. Excellent customer service.
