New Feature: Water Lid™ Pockets which 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.
This Trisuit 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.
The ITU Trisuit is made of Liftfoil™ with coldBlack™ Body, Forza Compressor™ Upper Body and Legs with Compressor™ double-legband, Liftfoil™ abdomen panel. It has a 12-inch (30 cm) YKK® zipper in back, as specified by ITU rules. It is constructed with panels that will accomodate all the required specifications: country name, athlete name, and sponsor logos. This suit comes with the option of the official ITU logo on the right upper chest for no additional charge. It has a colorful one-piece pad (men's version and women's version) 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 our famous 400-Mile Pad used in our bike shorts and bib shorts. We 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.
Simply put we added the Liftfoil™ panels in the center front and back for a number of reasons:
- 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 trishort faster in non-wetsuit races. Liftfoil™ is our swimskin fabric. It is of what make the entire Liftfoil™ Speed Trisuit. The addition of these panels on the front and back makes this trishort faster, and had no adverse affects when worn with a wetsuit.
A 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. Of course, as with all our products, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Test it for yourself. If you do not find it performs to your expectations, you may return it for a complete refund.
This garment is not designed for repeated use as a swimsuit in a chlorinated pool.
