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 the very first compression fabrics for the Dupont Textile Company. 2 decades and many improvements later, you simply cannot go wrong in owning this short. If you’re looking for the same great short with pockets search for our 4-pocket Forza Short (FTF3).
1″ (2.54cm) lower in the rise than previous models making it more of a regular rise than a high rise. This piece sits just below the hip bones.
Short is sewn around the 4mm Clasico Integrated Pad, so there are no seams where you sit. We have eliminated the Ceramico beads. Liftfoil fabric covers the outside of pad. It is smooth and allows for easier fore and aft movement on the saddle.
Seamless inner thigh eliminates friction and increases durability. No gripper elastic nor binding legbands that cause a tight squeeze of the thighs.
Curvilinear seamlines, and contrast flatstitch offer support, comfort and both aerodynamic and hydrodynamic advantage making it great for nonwetsuit races.
Not recommended for repeated use in a chlorinated pool. • Refer to size chart image for accurate fit. Fit Note – Triathlon apparel is meant to fit next-to-skin. This is to eliminate unnecessary drag during the swim, bike and run. If you’re not comfortable with this type of fit and or are between sizes, we recommend sizing up. Garment will relax slightly once wet.
