I have two pair of shorts looking for a pair to race in for this year. I have pearl elite and also a pair of zoot performance. I like them both but was looking for race only set.

low cut Desoto forza or something like that. I had izumi elite, and will never wear the izumi's again! The Desoto feel like a paradise for my balls.

I've tried a few, but always end up back in Zoots. The reason is that they are one of the very few brands that don't run a seam through the middle of the pad and that makes a big difference to me on long rides.

Louie Garneau pro elites for races and pro grippers for training, I just like the fit and the feel of both.

I also recently purchased the Desoto Carrerra and like them.  Very minimal thin pad.

The same reason I wear Zoots.  Had a pair of other brand of shorts that had a seam like you are talking about, damn things wore the skin right off of me in the worst spot.

Been using Hincapie. Shorts and top, as for shorts, really comfy, good on the bike, no chafe issues at all ( always cream up anyway ). id recommend them anyhow.

My favorite pair are my 2xu comp tri shorts.  I actually got them on a good deal on woot a few months ago and I love them.

I wear Orca sport shorts.

Does anyone know of any of those 'spandex' type shorts that have a mesh thing in it like running shorts do?

Desoto Forza Riviera.Period.Well,that was until I just got my Desoto 400 milers.The shorts/pad are extremely comfortable.I'll still use the Riviera with the smaller version of the 400 pad though for 1/2s and less.I also like the Desoto 1 piece for sprints.Has a very good overall fit for me.I find thier stuff very durable as well.

You actually wear the 400s for tri? I rode them biking and loved them, but have not used them for running as they seem a little bulky.

I can run in the 400 mile shorts but for a full,I change into run shorts.The pad is a bit bulky for running but in doing bricks,I haven't had any issues.I will say I prefer to run in the Forza Rivieras though as I don't even notice the pad.

Thanks for starting this thread, I am looking for a two piece suit too ...

Seems like a pretty strong vote for De Soto .. What distances do you race in these?

De Soto is hard to find in Europe, either I'll have to order from US or find another brand. How is the fit/sizing of the De Soto? And can anyone compare to Louis Garneau or 2XU which seems much more common in Europe? I've been looking at Louis Garneau pro 8 but looks like they have quite a big chamois...

I use the 1 piece for sprints and some olys.Halfs and fulls I use 2 piece suits.I find thier sizing pretty true to thier guide.If the fit isn't quite right,they are terrific about swaping out and helping with sizing through thier customer service.For reference,I'm 5'11,165#s,32 waist and thier mediums fit me well.
