This 2014 model has the Patent Pending Integrated Ceramico™ Pad.
With a total of four pockets, this is well considered to be the best short for long and ultra distance racing. The addition of the Ceramico Pad combine with the improvements to the fit and the new 3-inch double legband, will enhance your performance and comfort.
This short is not inside out!
The 2014 model has the Patent Pending Integrated Ceramico™ Pad. This is the 4mm thin, soft, stretchy, buoyant, and most durable pad in the world. That is correct, this garment no longer has that thin fleece pad it had since we first developed it. Ceramico™ is a polyurethane based coating embedded with rock-hard ceramic beads. The integrated pad is sewn onto the surrounding panels instead of inside the short, so there are no seams on any part of where you sit. You actually see the outside of the pad from the outside of the garment! This enviromentally-friendly innovation is completely free of solvents.
The Forza Trishort has solid black Liftfoil™ center panels for more comfort and durability! We added the Liftfoil™ panels in the center for a number of reasons:
- To improve the durability. Yes, this fabric is more durable, which is important in an area where rubbing occurs 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 trishort faster in non-wetsuit races. Liftfoil™ is our swimskin fabric. The Liftfoil™ Speed Trisuit is made entirely out of this swimskin fabric. The addition of these panels on the front and back not only makes this trishort faster, but they eliminate any adverse affects when worn with a wetsuit.
There are two pockets on each leg, one on the upper thigh, one on the lower thigh. They are large enough to fit any of your nutritional bars and packets, yet are commonly used for packing lubricants, spare socks and even smart phones. When the pockets are empty they sit close to the skin and you would never know they were there, but you will be surprised how much you will use them knowing they are!
This short is regular rise and sits high on the hips. The new 3-inch Forza Compressor™ legs have no binding gripper elastic on the bottom, so they are more comfortable on long rides, yet they stay in place. The entire Forza Trishort is sewn with a proprietary flat stitch which provides increased aerodynamics and durability over the life of the product.
It is made of Forza Compressor™ (see Fabric Facts) and is great for non-wetsuit races. Swim, bike, and run in comfort without changing.
This item is not designed for repeated use as a swim suit in a chlorinated pool.
Inseam lengths: XS-8.5", S-9", M-9.5", L-10", XL-10.5", XXL-11"
