De Soto Forza ITU Tri Suit for women abides by all the rules set forth by the
International Triathlon Union uniform requirements, as well as any national
federation that abides by ITU rules. So if you plan on racing in a trisuit in
any ITU event, you might as well get a trisuit that will be approved for many
years to come.
ITU Tri suit is made of a combination of Carrera™ Skin and Forza Compressor™. It
has a 12-inch (30 cm) YKK® zipper in back. It is constructed with panels that
will accommodate all the required specifications: country name, athlete name,
and sponsor logos.
has a colorful one-piece pad that floats which means it will only help you swim
faster. This unique pad stretches with the short and follows your skin as it
moves on the bike and run, eliminating the friction that can cause irritation or
rashes. The pad is a thin version of the famous 400-Mile Pad used in De Soto’s
bike shorts and bib shorts.
Soto double-lined areas around the midsection to keep it from being see-through.
It is made to fit snug so you can wear it under a wetsuit, or swim in it in
non-wetsuit races. Water Lid™ Pockets allow you to swim with no drag! The
pockets, which are located on each side of the body, are designed this way in
case you race without a wetsuit.
recent open water swim test has shown that swimming in this suit can offer
varied swim times of about 2-4 seconds per 100 meters, depending on the
individual testing it, faster than swimming in a conventional swimsuit. This
translates to 1'00" for 1500 meters and 2'40" for a swim of 4000 meters.
- Forza™ Compressor lifts and supports muscles to dampen the vibration due to
dynamic flexion and extension, as well as isometric flex during exercise. De
Soto was the first company to produce compression garments in 1997. Since then
they have offered Forza Products that have helped thousands of triathletes win
as well as improve on their personal best. Research findings from extensive
university studies show the Forza™ Compressor fabric helps to improve athletic
performance by delaying the onset of fatigue by as much as 12%, and by giving an
improved sense of body position. De Soto assembles the garments of this fabric
with proprietary articulated stitching techniques that maximize comfort and fit
while minimizing constriction and drag. The result is the best fitting and
highest quality product that money can buy. Consider each Forza garment as an
“exterior ligament” for your body!
