  • 2/16/2020 Nice cycling shorts

    I bought the white, black and plaid. Love the pockets in the back, perfect for a gel. I've worn/washed them twice and they seem to be well made. No chaffing so far. The fit is true to size. I'm usually a pants size 0 / 26" waist. I purchased the XS and they fit great.

    The pockets on these are great.  They’re deep and easily accessible.  No struggle to get stuff out of them.  The waist band is good for me, not great.  Where the string to tie is they are snug, which is good and the upper waist part is bigger which feels a little loose.  I got a small which fit fine,  I’m 5’9.5” and weigh 134lbs.  Overall good product but I’m glad I got it on sale because full price seems expensive.

    5 Review Stars By Sue

    These shorts are great.  They move with you, no bunching, tugging or sliding around.  The legs stay put without being tight.  I wore these for a half Ironman and found the chamois to be very comfortable on the ride but basically disappeared on the run.  The waist band is very soft and does not dig in at all.  For sizing-if you are between sizes go down a size.

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.
