Solid shorts

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.

great short for mid distance rides

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

Best all around riding short

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.

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.
