    I ordered this for stationary cycling and gym excercise and sretching sessions - padding is sufficient without being too bulky.  Shorts material is very thin (nylon and Lycra blend just like a racing swim suit, but thinner/lighter) -- not sure how well it will hold up over long term.

    Used in 2 sprint tri's this summer and it didn't bother me at all. In fact swimming was better than ever and it dried quickly and quietly on the bike. I only wish they made an identical model for use in chlorine.

    5 Review Stars By Petrovitch

    These are quite comfortable with just enough padding where it is needed. I am 5'10" 175lbs with 32" waist. medium fits. Draw string works well just in case the kids get any funny ideas. I have been training in the pool and immediately into the bike. They do retain a bit of water so you'll leave a puddle on a stationary bike (not an issue though with the road bike). I have had them on 5 times a week with a wash in between for the last month and there has been no sign of wear or distortion of the shape. So far so good.

    5 Review Stars By Marc L.

    I use the trishort for running, swimming and biking and it feels great.
    Very comfortable biking and the right compression for running and I love the fact that this short is not so long in the legs.
    The down point is the instructions says this trishort is not design to swim in chlorine water. Because I really like the short, I order a second one just incase it falls apart. So far so good.

  • 8/22/2013 Awesome Tri Shorts!

    5 Review Stars By Workuout18

    My husband loves these tri shorts! He runs, bikes, and lifts weights in these shorts. These are mid thigh shorts that he loves during our brutal summer months. He also wears these under basketball shorts comfortably for added support. This is his second pair of these!

    I purchased these for my first Olympic Tri. They are made with quality stitching and fabric. Not a ton of padding - but that is what I wanted. It fits great under the wetsuit. The only comment to make is that they are short... Look out - a lot of thigh. I am 6"4" so if you are shorter it would be no problem, if you are tall - rock it.

    With all tri-shorts, you wish the pad could be a bit bigger. Bikes and runs well. With little pad, no real issue in the water either. Recommend to those looking for a good buy.

About This Brand


The founders of De Soto 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.

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