Fit Note:
 Please do not assume your size is the same as in previous years, please use our size chart and if in doubt, email us: Triathlon apparel is meant to fit next-to-skin. This is to eliminate potential chafing, and unnecessary drag during the swim, bike and run. If you’re not comfortable with this type of fit and or are between sizes, we recommend sizing up. Garment will fit the most snug the first time you put it on, it will relax slightly once wet.

NEW FEATURE: We eliminated the wide elastic waistband to avoid unwanted bulging when drawcord is pulled.

Features & Benefits: 

  • Carrera Skin fabric is non-abrasive, has a buttery soft hand and blocks 75% of UVB rays
  • One inch higher rise than previous model, WMTS2 for better coverage.
  • Drawcord keeps shorts in place even in open water swimming.
  • One-piece seamless tri pad that extends down the inseam to eliminate all stitching in sensitive areas so all you're left with is comfort! (See image on the left)
  • We were the first to make a short with no gripper on the legs and we continue to do so - you won't find squeezing, pressing or an uncomfortable gripper
  • Microlock™ contrast stitching is virtually indestructible while providing an eloquent appearance
  • 2 side pockets to store your training or racing essentials
  • Reflective logos for increased low-light visibility
  • Attractive short perfect for triathlon, cycling, spin-class, and running
  • Designed and created by women
  • Made in the USA

    Bike shorts

    When I was regularly triathlon training a decade ago I started buying bike shorts for my wife as she never liked the thicker pad in many bike shorts. I'm still buying them for her as she is much more comfortable in the Desoto shorts.

    Love them!

    Used these for my first half ironman and they worked perfectly! Functional with a flattering fit.

    Micro tri shorts

    I really like the improvements made on this short. I’m not crazy about the side pockets, but more from an aesthetic point of view than function. The small is a plus. I do a lot of biking and the usual pad in biking shorts is a little much for me. The higher waist band is also a great improvement. I think I have 3 pairs of the old style, which were in desperate need of replacement and 3 pairs of the new version. Love DeSoto!!
