Fantastic shorts

These are just fantastic shorts...second only to the Forza tri shorts they make. Idk what else to say other than everything DeSoto makes is the highest quality...you’ll never be disappointed choosing this brand.

My favorite by far

These bike shorts are absolutely the best bike shorts I have trained and raced in. First, they are comfortable (I like to buy a size up and get the perfect fit). Second, they are made of of the toughest quality material for regular, extended use...by far the most durable bike short. Third, the side pocket is a must for me when I run. They are the best, but if there was one little tweak, I would like to see the the waist fit a little higher on the backside... That said, they are the still the best tri/bike short I've ever used and I've gone through just about everything since the early '80's.

Perfect balance for a tri short

I never imagined a 7mm pad could feel this comfortable while running. Great support in the saddle. Absolutely no chafing or rubbing. My new go-to tri bottoms.

The best!!

These have been my go to shorts for 5 years for one simple reason - they work, extremely well, and especially well for longer events. I’ve worn these in Kona 4 times and most recently in the Ultraman World Championships. 260 bike miles in Big Island conditions and no chafing or soreness. The pockets are extremely functional yet discrete, the pad is just enough for an all day hammer fest without that “diaper” feeling, and the overall comfort makes these the shorts I can count on without question. There’s so many moving pieces in triathlon, it really is huge to have gear that breeds confidence - I just know there will be zero issues with these shorts. Mahalo DeSoto for a great product!!

The size chart above should serve as a general guide. If you would like assistance in determining the proper size, please send the following information to contact@desotosport.com.

WEIGHT - Accuracy helps us provide a more accurate size for you.
CHEST - Fullest part of breast, measured as the largest part of circumference right over the pectoral muscle.
WAIST -  Circumference measured at the belly-button line - this is NOT the same as your pants waist size.
HIPS - Circumference measured at the widest point, NOT at your hips where your belt may go. Typically this will measure just a few inches below your hip bones and around the largest part of the glutes.

If you do not have a tape measure and you need something to measure with, use a belt, or smart phone power cord, and a ruler.
