Amazing shorts! I did my first 70.3 in them. I have tried other tri shorts but the padding was too thin. I was worried about bumping the padding up for the run, but they did great there too. If I ever do another one- these will be my go-to shorts! I am incredibly happy with them!
DeSoto has the best cycling chamois for women of any trisuits that I’ve researched or owned. The only thing I would change would be to make the waist a bit higher, but then I have a 60 year old tummy to cover. :) They have the “cooler” material added, so I’m looking forward to the warmer weather to see how it feels.
I’ve been having relationship issues with my saddle lately, and was worried that none of my tri shorts would be help make even a 25 mile ride very tolerable. The Riviera, with the thicker chamois, is the most comfortable tri short I’ve found. I’ve ridden for an hour and half with no issues, which is great. Also ran off the bike once, and they were very comfortable. Love the side pocket!
