My wife and I are avid runners who got back into cycling a few years ago. This naturally led us to train for and participate in multi-sport events. After doing some research, we found Desoto Sport products and one of my first purchases was a pair of the Riviera Tri Shorts. These shorts are amazing! They are light and offer good compression without feeling restrictive. I also really like the comfort of the Mobius leg bands and elastic waist. The chamois is just the right thickness to be comfortable on longer rides but unnoticeable when running. The pockets are convenient and secure, and the overall construction of the shorts is superb. I now have multiple pairs of these shorts for events and brick workouts, and my wife has added them to her wardrobe as well.
Best bike shorts i've ever worn
I use them to run and swim all the time. Only issue is they thigh area has worn significantly, and it's almost see through now.
The Riviera and Forza are my go to shorts. I use the riviera for the mid to long range rides. They are the perfect thickness. The Forza is equally comfortable and I use them routinely for shorter rides. Best thing is you can swim or run right off the bike so you get excellent tri wear with the comfort of regular cycling shorts
These shorts are where quality + function = perfection. These are my go to short for any road or mtn bike riding/racing. They are made to last, have a more compression fit (which I prefer) and the side pockets are really handy for gels in longer tri's. The material is longer lasting than other shorts I have owned and keep the shorts looking good. The stitching helps make the shorts all but indestructible... This is just a really well made, quality product.
