    The DeSoto T1 Speedtube was invented by Emilio De Soto in 2004. While he loved the benefits of swimming faster in a full wetsuit, he felt too warm and claustrophobic. After careful research and testing on how to achieve wetsuit buoyancy without losing speed, the Speedtube was born. The Speedtube floats the hips without sacrificing torso rotation and the natural stroke motion, resulting in better swimming technique. Perfect for racing, training or a replacement for your swim buoy.

    Fabric & Care

    • 5mm GreenGoma™ #8 Rubber with Yamamoto SCS™ (Super Composite Skin) for maximum buoyancy without compromising speed.
    • Lined with 4-Way stretch Nylon Lycra® for comfort 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.  
    • Can be worn alone or with any First Wave or Black Pearl Pullovers and Vests.  
    • Made for swimmers who: A. have a weak kick and want maximum hip flotation B. overheat easily in other wetsuits.

    Sizing & Fit

    • Men's and Women's wetsuit bottoms.
    • Compressive fit. 
    • 5-panel contour design for an exceptional fit.  
    • Shin cut high for easy fitting and removal.  
    • Heavy duty drawstring waist allows adjustability.   
    • 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.

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.
