This is our top-of-the-line competition tri short. It features our 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 our seamless Floatpad™ (one-piece, 4-way stretch, seamless, buoyant) with custom graphics. This is the same pad we use in our ITU Trisuit. This pad most closely resembles our 400-Mile Pad, but 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 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.
