Now with 2 Water Lid™ Pockets to hold all of your race fuel or gear while on a
training ride or run.
The De Soto Forza Riviera WaterLid Pocket Triathlon Short is De Soto’s
top-of-the-line competition tri short. It features a Forza Compressor™ double
legband for maximum support in your hamstrings and quadriceps. The low cut body
of the short is Liftfoil™ with coldBlack™, and comes with De Soto’s seamless
Floatpad™ (one-piece, 4-way stretch, seamless, buoyant) with custom graphics.
This is the same pad used in the ITU Tri Suit. This pad most closely resembles
De Soto’s 400-Mile Pad, but it is just a bit smaller and not so thick.
The Liftfoil™ panels in the center offer a number of benefits:
To improve the durability -
Yes, this fabric is more durable, which is important in an area where you will
be rubbing against a saddle and where some people's thighs rub together.
To keep the modesty panel, well, modest -
This fabric is not diaphanous at all (meaning not see-through). Something we all
appreciate not involuntarily seeing on others.
To make this tri short faster in non-wetsuit races -
Liftfoil™ is De Soto’s
swimskin fabric. The same fabric that makes up the entire Liftfoil™ Speed Tri
Suit. The addition of these panels on the front and back makes this tri short
faster, and have no adverse affects when worn with a wetsuit.
