  • 7/6/2012 Fast as a full suit, less restricting

    rating star By Lorraine

    A full suit can restrict arm movement - this capri gives as much buoyancy and speed as a full suit without any arm restriction. Less warm so great in summer water. Also fast to pull off in tris. I'm a 140-pound woman with 38-inch hips. The size four fit well.

  • 6/20/2012 Nice Quality

    rating star By Kevin H.

    This bottom piece has  great buoyancy with its thick skin. This piece is the match to the DeSoto top piece. The quality is excellent and definitely helps getting the legs up for a more efficient swim. I used it without the top and it doesn't leak, due to the snug waist.

  • 5/23/2012 Love the Speed Tube

    rating star By cutbackcoach

    I use just the bottoms to help with muscular sinking legs.  It is a dream - puts your dragging legs at the surface instantly - huge improvements in balance and swim times immediately.  Fit was per the sizing chart - I am 5-11 and 215 and the size 6 fit perfectly - snug, like second skin, but not restrictive.  Very easy to get on and off; rolls up into a wad the size of a football.  The sturdy drawstring waist keeps it cinched up and water out.  Wouldn't swim open water without it.  What a great product!

  • 3/22/2012 Desoto Speedtube

    rating star By John

    I have a weak kick, so this product adds some extra buoyancy to my swim efforts.   I use it in Tri's where the lake is too warm for the Desoto bibjohn/pullover -- water does get in occasionally, but it cools you off and does NOT affect buoyancy.  Super fast/easy to take off, so it does not affect my T1 time.  I have also used it once/twice in the pool as a replacement for the Pull Buoy; I make sure that I rinse/clean off the chlorine afterwards.  Buy it...Desoto has made another "great" product and Swim offers the best price/delivery!

    rating star By Tri OW

    Great for open water practice in a warm environment and in a pool practice.  could not find any better product than this.  For a full Suite I use Xterra.

  • 8/9/2011 Faster-period

    rating star By Don Thehounddog

    I am a new triathlete.  Bought the Speedtube pants after our lake became too warm to wear even my sleeveless wetsuit.  I am actually faster in my Speedtube pants than I am in the wetsuit.  I like the freedom of a completely unrestricted upper body, while still having the buoyancy the pants provide to my lower body (which is why I bought a wetsuit to begin with).  Plus, the speedpants come off VERY quickly, drastically lowering my transition time.  I would definitely buy this product again.

  • 5/24/2010 Love it!!!

    rating star By Spencer S.

    I've been using the Speedtube for racing (triathlons) and training.  You swim a little differently in a wetsuit and I've found this thing preps me well for the different feel when a tri comes along.  Just throw a top on and you're good to go.  I also love that the legs come off real easy in transition.  I've tried a number of one piece wetsuits, but this thing really rocks.

  • 5/5/2010 new to tri's

    rating star By James D.

    I am new to tri's, havent done one yet but have been taking tri classes all winter. I find that I have a hard time keeping my legs afloat and have a hard time kicking being a runner and all. SO someone told me about this suit so I ordered it and its like being a new swimmer, unbelievable difference.

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.
