  • 9/7/2013 great tri shorts

    rating star By zul m.

    Just used these shorts for my first tri in open water and they worked great!  After reading the reviews before purchasing on "feel too small," I ordered one size bigger, making them a perfect fit!  The pants stayed-put during the swim and run, and were comfortable during the biking.  Can't be beat for the price!  Delivery was fast and efficient, too!

  • 8/19/2013 Highly recommended tri shorts

    rating star By Salad

    Just recently wore these for my first sprint triathalon. I am 5"6 and usually wear a size 4, and the medium fit well w/use of the drawstring. They aren't too short either & never rode up during the bike or the run.

    Positives: Great/flattering fit, quick dry true to the purpose, fair price. Def. recommend these!

    Negatives: Highly recommend HAND-WASHING. Don't think these would last long w/use of washing machine & (due to comments on this message board) looks like the drawstring will come apart. Very thin padding for bike, but this was also not a deal breaker since tri shorts can't really have much padding if you also want to swim & run in them.

  • 8/19/2013 Great fit- needs to be tighter at bottom

    rating star By Renee K.

    Used to swim/bike/run in my Sprint TRI. Great shorts. Feel like the elastic at the bottom of each leg could be tighter, seems to bunch a little, but overall didn't seem to affect performance.

  • 8/16/2013 Awesome Tri Short

    rating star By Denise R.

    These fit and feel great.  They dry quickly, the compression is nice and I love that the pad is minimal, perfect for the run off the bike.  I also like the length of these shorts, not too long and not too short (I'm 5"5").  houwever, the all black shorts seem to be  slightly longer than those with the patterned waistband.  I actually bought one pair and loved them so much I bought two more.

    The only drawback and only reason for the 4 star rating instead of 5, is that the drawstring keeps coming out in the washer.  I have finally chosen just to leave it out since they seem to fit fine without it.

  • 8/3/2013 I love these shorts!!!!!

    rating star By Lisa M.

    I bought a pair of these and as soon as they arrived I put them on. I swam, biked, and ran in them and I love them. I bought another pair right away. They don't give you the "sausage" legs as they are not overly tight around the legs and the wide band across the top is of perfect comfort!! I love them

  • 5/4/2013 comfortable tri short

    rating star By D. Rhodes

    These shorts fit true to size, have a comfortable waist band and are not too tight around the leg.

    I was a bit nervous about the length at first thinking they might be a bit short and then ride up my leg as I rode, but they didn't.  So far I've only had opportunity to try them once, during a brick workout, and they stayed comfortable and in place for both the bike and run.

    I purchased the small even though my waist measurement was borderline between the small and medium and I'm glad I didn't size up.  I would definitely recommend them to a friend

  • 3/31/2013 Very Cute Tri Short

    rating star By Suzanne C.

    These shorts were very cute on.  They were not tight at the thigh like some cycling shorts are.  I thought they might ride up while biking and running but they didn't at all.  Will keep these and probably buy another pair! They seemed to run true to size.

  • 2/8/2013 carrera shorts

    rating star By jami

    These shorts are very comfy.  I can stay on the trainer much longer with these shorts and not get too uncomfortable.  The pad is very thin, but effective.  Also I find these tri shorts to be flattering.  They don't squeeze the tummy or legs.  In some tri shorts I feel like a sausage in a casing, but these shorts fit well and look nice while being comfortable.

  • 1/28/2013 A little bit slippy

    rating star By Gayle M

    These are a nice fit and great length. The chamois is light, and for the run portion of the tri they are ideal. My only complaint is that they are a little slippy ~ not so bad on the long ride when you've settled into the saddle a bit more and have built up some moisture :)  but at first they are really slippy. For new riders I would say to chose another pair.....these won't help with feeling secure on your bike.

The founders of DeSoto are Emilio De Soto and Dan Neyenhuis. Emilio De Soto is a triathlete who is racing in his 27th consecutive season of triathlon competition. He is also fully immersed in his athletic lifestyle as a fitness trainer and coach. Dan Neyenhuis is an age-grouper triathlete who has been helicopter skiing for 20 years. Together, they created a company that designs cutting edge triathlon gear for triathletes, by triathletes.

DeSoto gear is designed to enhance performance in each leg of the race. The founders created the first mesh running cap, zippered tri tops, pocketed tri shorts, transition packs, tri suits, and tri shorts with discreet pads for cycling.

One of their other achievements was creating the DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit that is two pieces instead of one. The DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit was designed to make a better fit for triathletes, and each year, more DeSoto tri tops and DeSoto tri shorts are being added to the line. DeSoto is still the only company in the world that makes a two-piece triathlon wetsuit.
