The story behind the T1 Speedtube is based on the CEO's own experience of triathlons. He found full body wetsuits to be too hot and claustrophobic. That's where he came up with the idea to create the Speedtube. The 3/4 Length capri style pants made out of GreenGoma™ rubber is in a class all on its own.

Stretchy and Easy Removal

  • 4-way stretch Nylon Lycra® minimizes chafing.
  • 5-panel, contoured design with glued and blind-stitched seams.
  • Shin-high cut for easy removal.

Durable and Dependable

  • Durable, heavy-duty drawstring waist.
  • Chlorine-resistant treatment, but not recommended for repeated use in chlorinated water.
  • GreenGoma™ #8 Rubber with Super Composite Skin for greater durability, flexibility, and buoyancy.
  • GreenGoma™ rubber is 98.9% water-impermeable to keep it light, quick-drying, and long-lasting.

T1 Design and Reliability

  • T1 Wetsuit pieces are completely legal under the new rules set by ITU, USAT, and WTC.
  • The Speedtube has become a common training tool for some of the country's top university swim and water polo teams.
  • All seams are glued and blind-stitched, making them stronger than the rubber itself.

    Feels true to size

    Speed tube - wet suit bottoms fit well and pull-on and slide-off easily.
    For the first two years of triathlon events I swam with a full body wetsuit.
    Two years ago I switched to the two piece option offered by deSoto. I love the options for sleeved or sleeveless tops, and separate bottoms. I can get the best fit possible with a top that fits and bottoms that are a different size.

    Order 1 size larger than chart. Great investment! I plan to order the vest.

    This is fabulous, it's all that it was presented and more. Sizing is very important as fit is essential. The product arrived as promised.  It takes a couple of seconds to put on and much less time to take off than a full length wet suit.  Perfect for times when the temperature is borderline for longer races.  Many thanks to a friend for suggesting it!

    I bought this to get my legs up closer to the surface. I never realized how much of a handicap my heavy legs dragging through the water were until I swam with a pull buoy. Let me say this product works GREAT. Not only did it bring my legs right to the surface, it actually felt like I was sliding through the water faster than with bare legs or jammers. FYI, I had never swam with a wetsuit before. Excellent floatation for the legs.



The founders of DeSoto are Emilio De Soto and Dan Neyenhuis. Emilio De Soto is a triathlete who is racing in his 27th consecutive season of triathlon competition. He is also fully immersed in his athletic lifestyle as a fitness trainer and coach. Dan Neyenhuis is an age-grouper triathlete who has been helicopter skiing for 20 years. Together, they created a company that designs cutting edge triathlon gear for triathletes, by triathletes.

DeSoto gear is designed to enhance performance in each leg of the race. The founders created the first mesh running cap, zippered tri tops, pocketed tri shorts, transition packs, tri suits, and tri shorts with discreet pads for cycling.

One of their other achievements was creating the DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit that is two pieces instead of one. The DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit was designed to make a better fit for triathletes, and each year, more DeSoto tri tops and DeSoto tri shorts are being added to the line. DeSoto is still the only company in the world that makes a two-piece triathlon wetsuit.
