  • 8/31/2012 My favorite running/biking/swimming shorts

    rating star By Vicki

    Use these shorts for all kinds of activities, especially yoga & biking & actual swimming (not for sunning/beach).  The fabric & seams are holding up well.  5"8"/130# & thin: XS & S fit really well.  Don't agree with other reviewers saying they are too small.  Please don't change them, they are perfect.  I will say there seems to be almost no difference in size between XS & S--lay them on top of each other & they're identical.  I ordered S before XS was available, apparently, but both fit well.  I like the cut, and the comments I get from both M & F competitors.

  • 11/25/2011 LOVE These!!

    rating star By Kat

    LOVE these shorts!!  I use them in triathlons and just for cycling and they work great for both.  They are super flattering on too.  I have quite a substantial booty and they don't ride up and cause me to show some cheek while running, if you know what I mean.  
    They do run very small though.  I am usually a small in most things and I had to buy a large.

  • 11/11/2013 Got the job done but do beware of small sizing

    rating star By Trigirlhawaii

    I listened to other reviewers and got a size up to Medium.  I normally wear a size 2-4 depending on the brand but these shorts definitely run small.  Though they are still a slight pain to get on, the fit is still MUCH BETTER than normal biking shorts that always make my petite Asian legs look like sausage links.  Love the length, the padding makes biking longer distances tolerable.  Glad to have found this product before my upcoming Olympic triathlon in two weeks.

  • 8/8/2013 Great Tri Short!

    rating star By Jessica M.

    Yay! A tri short with leg openings meant for cyclists' legs! This short is fantastic. It dries quickly, has a nice wide waist band, and most importantly, the leg openings don't squeeze your legs to look like sausage links! I got a size small (I am 5 feet, 4 inches, 115 pounds) and they fit great. I found the minimalist chamois really great for a shorter race or any training. I would suggetst this product to ladies who like a shorter short that is really comfy!

  • 3/24/2013 Order larger

    rating star By mw

    I am 5"9" and wear size 9.  I ordered a large and they fit great.  A medium would have been too small.  Definitely low rise, but I love them.

    They are small but that's how they are supposed to be. I usually wear s or m. This time I ordered m and they are perfect.

  • 12/12/2012 Too short and too small

    rating star By Karen P.

    I expected these to be short, but they're really short. Also, I usually wear a small but these also seem smaller an usual. Cute shorts that would be comfortable had I ordered a medium I think. I'm 5"5" and 118 lbs.

  • 6/18/2012 Great tri shorts!

    rating star By Lindsay A.

    These are great shorts. I wore them for my most recent oly distance tri and they were excellent. They do fit small...I heeded the past reviewers and ordered a medium instead of my usual small. I was nervous because my other DeSoto tri shorts (1 pair forza long distance, and 1 pair low rise) are small and fit well. Anyway, the reviewers were correct..the medium fits the same as the small in other deSotos.

  • 4/25/2012 Too small

    rating star By SB

    Wear medium size in nearly everything, but couldn't even get this medium on.  Not even sure a large would fit.

  • 4/23/2012 Perfect Tri Short

    rating star By Jessie

    I love these for triathlons! They are a little short (as the name suggests), so if that will bother you don't get these. I'm 5'7 and weigh 130, size medium works well for me. I do feel they run slightly small, as I normally wear a size small in most brands, but after reading other reviews I went for the medium.

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.
