  • 11/27/2013 My goto short

    5 Review Stars By Donavon L.

    These are my goto shorts for my long rides training for Ironman. The pockets are great for a cell phone (Android/apple) and nutrition. The pad is good for the long rides of 6 plus hours. I recommend purchasing Aquaphor at your local grocer/pharmacy along with these shorts. I've had several pair training for several Ironman events. They last about 8 months of continued training, then it's time to swap 'em out. Very good shorts, highly recommend these. Little TIP: If you plan to race in a tri kit with less padding on race day, consider transitioning out of these shorts a few months before your race. If you plan to do a half IM or full, you can wear a speed suit over this short (pockets are like sails). The pad was wet after the swim, but very doable for IM. Again, use Aquaphor.  Just don't run in these for ANY distance. Its like a diaper.

    Very comfortable.  Excellent padding.  I've used these on several 50+ mile rides and most recently a century.  These shorts relieve much discomfort.

  • 8/15/2013 A little overrated

    3 Review Stars By El-Cabong

    There was a lot of hype over this product however for me, it was ordinary - nothing that really stands out over the other brands I use. The chamois is slightly better than others - especially the channel cut because I don't like a lot padding to begin with however the negative is if you have "Thunder Thighs". You might need to go up one size as the compression is a killer. All in all, it is a good product.


    Fit: Feels too small

  • 5/11/2013 DeSoto 400 mile short

    5 Review Stars By Techeros

    I use these shorts for Iron Man training and racing.
    I ride up to 6 hours in the shorts and felt very comfortable the entire time. the pockets on either side and in the rear are perfect for holding your nutrition. The shorts have held up for one year very well under heavy use.
    I highly recommend the shorts to train In or race.
    the only downside to the shorts are the pockets that will turn in to sail in the water you may want to wear a speed suit over these.


  • 3/19/2013 Very Good Bike Short

    5 Review Stars By Yeti

    First time using the shorts I did a 60 mile ride and then ran in them for 2 miles "4 Hours on the trainer". My behind still got sore but there was no chaffing or any problems the next day. highly recommend theses shorts.

  • 9/13/2012 Best bike shorts ever!

    5 Review Stars By JaxWXDude

    This is my second pair of DeSoto 400 mile shorts and I plan on getting a couple more when they are on sale again.  My entire team now wears these shorts.  They are the most comfortable bike short ever.  Whether you are riding a 20 mile sprint or a century cruise - you will love these shorts.

About This Brand


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.
