  • 8/6/2020 Exactly what I wanted

    5 Review Stars By Steve

    I'm only a casual triathlon who usually would get xl, but I didn't need a super tight fit, so the xxl worked great.

    Fit: Feels true to size

  • 4/20/2019 Wow...the perfect try short no matter the distance!

    5 Review Stars By Iron_Mike

    Ever get sore down below because the narrowing of the pad right when you hit the seat?!?  Well...you know what I mean if you use an Adamo seat!!!!  These are the perfect choice!!  That is, these are perfect for ALL distances from my experience...Sprint up to Iron distance!!!

    One small note on what I've noticed (over several years): You need to use a bit more lube that doesn't break-down over long rides (since the pad can feel a MILD abrasive if not).  In fact, I use Asos 1st AND then Chamois butter on top; and, I always use alcohol wipes after).  That's just good care though, no matter the tri shorts!

    I'm ordering more to reduce the need to do laundry so often (my wife will like that!!!) :)

  • 1/17/2018 Good pad...heavy on compression

    5 Review Stars By Shawn

    The pad seems to be great, but it is a bit more compression than I like.  Ordered an XL.

About This Brand

DeSoto

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.
