Designed by our friend, supporter, and avid triathlete, Michael Paskin worked directly with De Soto Sport to create this custom Gwendolyn Strong Foundation cycling kit. Both top of the line quality and comfort while 100% charitable, this high-end kit will have you soaring!

These women's cycling shorts come with two fold over hidden pockets that will keep all your belongings from shifting or falling out. They are large enough to carry energy gels, credit cards, keys, or a cell phone.

The 400 Mile Cycling Short newly designed waistband has 2/3 elastic band, covering the entire back and sides, ending at the pelvic bones for less restriction on the abdomen which allows for a more comfortable stomach area, alleviating the need for a drawstring. It also helps to avoid common GI issues.

These shorts include the 400 mile pad is a float pad, dries quickly and has become very popular for all types of triathlons. This pad floats and stretches which means it can be used as a race piece in a triathlon. On the bike, the pad stretches with the short and follows your skin as it moves with every pedal stroke, eliminating the friction that can cause irritation or rashes.

Fit Note: These shorts are made of our finest compression material, so help fight fatigue. If you prefer a less compressive fit, please size up.

A Mobius Strip is a surface with only one side and one boundary. Mobius‚ĄĘ Comfort is our new form-fitting, yet non-binding compressive fabric. The knit we created when blending fibers make repeated mobius loops so that the same surface, stretch, and rebound is on both sides of the fabric and in equal direction. You will notice comfort and support without constriction, opacity without unnecessary weight, and durability from a very smooth surface on both sides.
