    Top of the Line Shorts

    I have been using Forza 4 pocket shorts for several years. I have them made with the 7mm pad and they have outstanding comfort, even for Iron distance events. The pockets are so useful, once you have them it is hard to wear shorts without. They also have a dual layer in the front for greatly improved modestly! They are more durable than most other brands and stand up well to repeated washings. One of my favourite features is that they do not bag and sag during a race like most other brands. I have tried most other brands and find Desoto to be the best.

    Best tri shorts anywhere

    DeSoto is simply the best tri short available. I have worn several other brands and none of them compare to this quality.
