    Love the quality of material ... unfortunately the low-cut is too low cut overall

    I love the quality of the DeSoto products I've purchased. Unfortunately, I would not purchase the Carrrera Tri Short Low-cut again because they're too short especially in the back-side.

    Great biking shorts

    I love how well they fit and you can't beat those pockets for convenience. The low-rise front is really nice for hitting right where I bend at the waist line when in the saddle. Many thanks and glad a friend recommended these shorts.

    Perfect Fit

    I have been looking for some low cut and short inseam bike shorts for awhile. These are super comfortable and fit perfectly

    The pockets are definitely worth the extra expense!

    I have been using Carrera Tri Shorts as my exclusive shorts for running for many years. I’ve actually looked to see if any other companies make something comparable, including recently, and come up empty. When I went to the company site to replace an old pair that has gotten worn, the pocketed version caught my eye for the first time. Now I wonder why I haven’t been using these all along. The pockets are a game changer. For long runs, I have been struggling for a solution that has all of my nutrition and hydration needs. These pockets are perfect for putting a couple of packets of GU or Bloks in a way that my bottle belts never have, and they’re very easy to get to. This will be my exclusive short moving forward.
