Fit Note: Please do not assume your size, please use our size chart. If in doubt, email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.

Carrera Tri Short
Best Tri short on the market! Always has been!!
Great product - same as always
I bought a pair of their tri shorts so many years ago that I can't remember when. Probably more than 15 years ago. I'm still using those shorts! I needed another pair and these are just as good as those original shorts. The only nitpick I have is that I didn't realize that "DeSoto" was written so large down the leg of the shorts. It probably won't bother anyone else, but if I'm going to be a walking billboard ...
Lovin’ these riding togs
These shorts are absolutely comfortable. Bye and bye you realize that the cut of the shorts and placement of the pad conspire to achieve that elusive harmony of fit and function. I have two...a third may be in my future.
Carrera tri shorts
I remember when Emilio De Soto First came up with the tri shorts we’ll over 20 years ago! They were a game changer in triathlon clothing because they bridged the gap between wearing Speedo’s and something more accommodating, fashionable and comfortable that could be used not only for racing but also daily training! Everyone copied those tri shorts shorts and they are still the best with the tri pad superior to all other triathlon shorts. I should know because I’ve tried them all! I have bought anywhere between 40 to 45 pair of Carrera tri shorts over the past 20 years including 4 this year for the 2019 season! Great job De Soto!!
Long lasting comfort
The first pair I had lasted two years, I train and race in them year round. I just bought my second pair and I expect that they will last just as long. I really like the soft, thin fleece pad which is great in the water, on the bike and the run. The padding has never irritated me like some other materials have. I also love the shorter inseam length, I find that so much more comfortable than longer shorts that come down to my knees. The only thing I would change is bottom edge of the shorts, I wish they were just a little tighter around the thigh.
