The De Soto First Wave is simply the best wetsuit in the world and De Soto challenge it against any other more expensive brands to the test. De Soto s high-end suit is lined with 4-way stretch Nylon Lycra to minimize chafing. All seams are glued and blind-stitched, making them stronger than the rubber itself. All wetsuit models feature sleek graphics and are sold as separates for a more customized fit. All T1 Wetsuits are made of GreenGoma a limestone rubber. Until recently all triathlon wetsuits have been made of petroleum. First in the industry to introduce limestone rubber into their wetsuits, all T1 Wetsuits incorporate this amazing GreenGoma technology.
Stretchy 5mm thickness to the hips floats the legs and hips more than any other wetsuit. 3mm Bib straps go over the trapezius (base of neck), so no limited reach, no tired shoulders, and faster swim times. GreenGoma #9 rubber with super composite skin rubber makes the First Wave the warmest, fastest, most durable, flexible, and buoyant, and the most comfortable wetsuit in the world today. Chlorine resistant treatment, but not recommend for repeated use in chlorinated water. Elliptical leg openings for faster and easier removal, longer seam tape for self-customizing leg length, and lower profile bibjohn straps with soft Lycra trim. 95% blown rubber/5% nylon.
