Last year De Soto brought you the Forza Tri Bib and now comes the De Soto
Riviera Bibbed Triathlon Suit for men, based off the popular Riviera Tri Short.
Same design, fit, and Floatpad as the Riviera Tri Short while the Bib design
offers a slimming look as it holds in the stomach and obliques while allowing
ease of breathing and no cutting at the waist.
The Liftfoil™ panels in the center offer a number of benefits:
To improve the
durability. Yes, this fabric is more durable, which important in an area where
you will 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. It is of
what make the entire Liftfoil™ Speed Tri Suit. The addition of these panels on
the front and back makes this tri short faster, and had no adverse affects when
worn with a wetsuit.
