  • 2/17/2017 shorts to tight

    4 Review Stars By Case Koreman

    I ordered a replacement equal to prior orders.
    It seems the crotch-to-the-waist is shorter than with past orders.
    I have not gained weight in the past year.
    I do not like having to hike up the suit  frequently. This was not an issue with prior orders.

  • 8/22/2013 Awesome Tri Shorts!

    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!

  • 4/8/2010 Good value

    4 Review Stars By Dave B.

    Bought these for my first sprint triathlon and have trained with them in the water, on the bike, and running.  No problems...very comfortable all around.  Take note of the length, they are shorter than biking shorts.

  • 5/20/2016 DeSoto Carrera Tri Shorts

    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.

  • 6/5/2010 Great short

    5 Review Stars By WillyB

    I had my first Olympic-distance triathlon and this was the pair of shorts I decided to purchase and use. The short fits really well and isn't constricting on the legs like some jammers I own. The padding may seem pretty thin but should be fine for just about any distance. The short also dries pretty quickly and held up after the wash. I am going to purchase more of these!

  • 9/7/2010 Awesome, just what I was looking for.

    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.

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.
