  • 9/2/2015 I love this product

    rating star By ND

    i bought this to help in an upcoming triathlon.   I am 6'7 and weigh 260 so I bought size 7.  It fit really well.  No problems putting on or taking off the speed tube.  while swimming you immediately are in a great horizontal position with a feeling that you are swimming downhill.  It felt really fast and like you could swim forever.  Very nice.  I am glad I did not purchase any top, this gives me full range of motion, I am not fighting a wet suit to try to swim at all, in my case the water was not so cold that I needed the warmth.   Also, this is great for Freestyle.  I cannot swim breastroke at all in this suit, In fact I do not know how you would swim breastroke effectively with the bouyancy of a wet suit.  That was an issue for me because I swim both free style and breastroke.  That is not a problem of the equipment, it is my problem to get more endurance in my free style.  I love this product.

    rating star By Barbara

    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.

  • 1/25/2013 awesome!

    rating star By rorte007

    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.

  • 3/18/2015 buoyant hips and legs

    rating star By makai2

    I purchased this for an upcoming triathlon in Hawaii. Fairly easy to pull off. It seems a little strange to swim in because of its buoyancy, but it did appear to be a couple minutes faster on a 1.2 mile swim.

  • 8/17/2013 DeSoto Speedtube T1

    rating star By Mark T.

    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!

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.
