The Bibjohn First Wave was designed to be worn in conjunction with the T1 tops so you can have ultimate control with what you want to wear on race day. This makes you ultra-comfortable and confident on your suit so you can focus on your race and not on worrying about transitions.

Stretchy and Versatile

  • 4-way stretch with Nylon Lycra® to prevent chafing and increase comfort.
  • Glued, blind-stitched seams are stronger than rubber.
  • 5mm thickness at hips.

Green and Eco-Friendly

  • 3mm bib straps go over the trapezius for unrestricted movement.
  • GreenGoma™ #9 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.

Warm for Open Water

  • Elliptical leg openings for quicker removal.
  • Bibjohn is designed so that when you wear any of the T1 tops, the total rubber thickness remains less than 5mm thick, so you have all the needed flexibility you want.
  • With 5mm thick rubber, you keep your spine and vital organs warm.

    Feels true to size

    The 2-piece design is genius. Easy to put on and take off w/ ZERO assistance. Varying thickness throughout by-design is perfect and lifts your legs up in the swim.

    It's expensive, but no regrets WHATSOEVER.



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.
