De Soto Men’s Forza ITU Trisuit Red





This Trisuit abides by all the rules set forth by the 2008 International Triathlon Union uniform requirements (available at These rules apply to:

  • 2008 ITU Triathlon World Cup and 2008 ITU Triathlon Continental Cup events.
  • 2008 ITU World Championships and 2008 ITU Continental Championships (in all distances and disciplines) for elite, u23 and junior athletes.
  • 2009 ITU World Championships and 2009 ITU Continental Championships (in all distances and disciplines) for age-group athletes.

So if you plan on racing in a trisuit in any ITU event in 2009, you might as well get a trisuit that will be approved for many years to come.

The 2009 De Soto Men’s Forza ITU Trisuit is made of a combination of Carrera Skin and Lycra Power. The De Soto Men’s Forza ITU Trisuit has a 12-inch (30 cm) YKK zipper in back, as specified by ITU rules (zippers can no longer be in front). It is constructed with panels that will accommodate all the required specifications: country name, athlete name, and sponsor logos. This suit comes with the official ITU logo on the right upper chest.

The De Soto Men’s Forza ITU Trisuit 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 De Soto’s 2009 bike shorts and bib shorts.

De Soto double-lined areas around the midsection to keep it from being see-through. It has no pockets and is made to fit snug so you can wear it under a wetsuit, or swim in it in non-wetsuit races. The De Soto Men’s Forza ITU Trisuit is a comfortable and fast trisuit that will pass ITU uniform regulations. Available here first at


  • Forza Compressor – Lifts and supports muscles to dampen the vibration due to dynamic flexion and extension, as well as isometric flex during exercise. Research findings from extensive university studies show the Forza Compressor fabric used in De Soto garments help to improve athletic performance by as much as 12%, by delaying the onset of fatigue and by giving an improved sense of body position. De Soto assembles the garments of this fabric with proprietary articulated stitching techniques that maximize comfort and fit while minimizing constriction and drag. The result is the best fitting and highest quality product that money can buy.
  • Carrera Skin body with Compressor double-legband – Carrera Skin is a nylon/spandex blend that is lightweight, breathable, quick-drying and keeps its support and fit, even when wet. Carrera Skin is smooth which makes it non-abrasive so it is comfortable for training and racing. It also blocks 75% of UVB rays.
