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.
- 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!
- An innovative and proprietary combination of thread and two-pass-stitching
techniques. Invented by De Soto to provide the most durable seams in existence,
yet yield an eloquent appearance.
