The De Soto Ciclismo Grupo is our entry into the road cycling market. We have combined thousands of miles on the road with our United States design and production capabilities to offer superb quality, function, style and performance.
This "California Dreamin'" design was inspired by the many amazing sunsets and towering king palms seen at our coastline. The sunset colors and silhouettes give this garment a very bright appearance when riding your own Pacific Coast Highway.
“To me design is not just how something looks. A much more important aspect of design is how something works. How it looks is like a person's hair and skin...it is superficial....how it works is like a person's brain, heart, and soul.” – Emilio De Soto II
The graphics offer an appearance in which we take great pride, after all it is what first draws you to our products, but the materials and fabrication offer the quality that keep you comfortable for many miles.
Your hamstrings and quadriceps will thank you for the incredible support offered by the Forza Compressor™ fabric and double legband. Our famous innovative 400-Mile™ pad floats and stretches which means it can be used as a race piece in a triathlon. On the bike, the pad stretches with the short and follows your skin as it moves with every pedal stroke, eliminating the friction that can cause irritation or rashes.
This 11-panel bib has a Carrera™ Piqué Abdomen panel to hold in your midsection and to give you bit more breathability in front, just above the pad. It is finished with piping along the bibstraps for added comfort and flexibility on long rides.
One of the great features of this short is what it does not have....it does not have elastic leg gripper, eliminating the tight binding around the thighs.
Made of Forza Compressor™ (see Fabric Facts), this short stays down and in place and also features Liquid Mesh™ to keep you cool. It has a pocket in the center back that fits cell phones, mp3 players, and fuel packets. Curvilinear™ seamlines, contrast flatstitch, and the 400-Mile™ Pad make it the most comfortable bibshort on the market, regardless of price.
