  • 10/14/2012 Love these shorts

    rating star By Tridad

    I bought these shorts a month before my ironman with some trepidation because you're not supposed to change anything on race day but, no worries. These shorts were great and worth every cent. On the bike they were comfortable and offered as much cushion as my bike shorts. I didn't even notice them on the run. They were smooth with not chafing. I would definitely recommend them for any length of triathlon.

  • 9/26/2012 Absolutely perfect, my best tri shorts ever!

    rating star By Adam

    What's great: compression, fit, comfort, overall quality and versatility.
    What's not so great: couple of pockets would be helpful.
    I love forza riviera! Absolutely perfect for me for up to half ironman distance. Padding is very comfortable in all 3 sports, allows me to stay in aero position on the bike for a long time. I don't notice it at all during the swim, and on the run it does not feel like a diaper at all.

    My boyfriend and I both use these for Ironman. No problems, great compression no chaffing and the pad is perfect for 112!

  • 8/28/2012 nice tri shorts with a bit more padding

    rating star By SZ

    Love this extra padding vs most normal tri shorts, but its not so much as to be uncomfortable on the run.  Have only done an olympic in them but I wouldn't hesitate to wear them up to about 50 miles or maybe more on a normal ride.  Super fast to dry!  Love the compression on the quads.  Noticed coming out of the water the bottom of legs were a little loose which was odd since I had worried initially they were too tight overall, but as they dried they tightened right up.  They are VERY low cut however so just be aware depending on your physique you may need a longer jersey if you don't want your skin showing above.  These are the lowest cut of the DeSoto lineup.  I won't hesitate to put these on for running only.

  • 6/18/2012 DeSoto Forza Tri Short

    rating star By Roger G.

    I'm 6' tall 150 pounds and I wear a medium. They are compression tri shorts so they are snug. I prefer mine this way because I do open water swims in them. Excellent tri shorts. These are my second pair. Very comfortable padding in them.

  • 9/4/2011 sweet shorts

    rating star By J Herber.

    I purchased the shorts just a week before my first Ironman in Canada. It is very comfortable and I did not have any chaffing issues that I had to worry about. The tightness around my quads gave it a compression feeling. The only thing about the shorts that I would have like is that legs length could be longer, just a personal preference. The padding however seems a little bulky that I did not wear them during the run. Because I earned the rights... I AM AN IRONMAN..

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.
