If there is a trendsetter in triathlon apparel, it might just be De Soto. Since 1990 De Soto has been improving, innovating, and importing again with all of their garments. From transition packs, tri-shorts with minimal pads, one-piece trisuits, to the famous T1 wetsuits, De Soto has been progressing triathlon equipment since their inception.
The fabrics and pads are designed by the founders themselves, Emilio and Tracy DeSoto. This means that what you buy isn't some vague concept of what a designer thinks a pad should be, it is exactly what a pad needs to be to ensure that the athletes using them are performing at their best.
