    Fabric & Care

    • Stretchy 5mm thick rubber starts at the ankles, goes up to the crotch and around the sides of the hips to float the legs and hips more than any other wetsuit.  
    • Low profile 2mm Bib straps with soft Lycra trim go over the trapezius (base of neck) to allow unrestricted reach, prevents tired shoulders, and aids in faster swim times.  
    • The Black Pearl has the same design, construction, and fit as the T1 First Wave, but is made of GreenGoma™ #8 Rubber with Super Composite Skin.  
    • Interior 4-way stretch nylon-spandex has a higher thread count than any other brand for more stretch and durability, faster drying, and to minimize chafing.  


    • Zipper is lighter weight and corrosion resistant.  
    • Less-toxic bonding agent for people with skin sensitivities.  
    • Seams are glued and blind-stitched, making them more durable than the rubber itself.  
    • Sleek graphics.  
    • Chlorine resistant treatment, but not recommend for repeated use in chlorinated water.  

    Sizing & Fit

    • Men's and Women's wetsuit bottoms.
    • Compressive fit. 
    • Longer seam tape for self-customizing leg length.  
    • Angled leg openings for faster and easy removal.  
    • Triathlon apparel is meant to fit next-to-skin.  
    • NOTE: If you’re not comfortable with this type of fit and or are between sizes, we recommend sizing up.
    • Garment will fit the most snug the first time you put it on, it will relax slightly once wet. 

    Country of Origin

    • Made in the U.S.A.

About This Brand


The founders of De Soto 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.

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