Fit Note: Please do not assume your size, please use our size chart. If in doubt, email questions to contact@desotosport.com. Triathlon apparel is meant to fit next-to-skin. This is to eliminate potential chafing, and unnecessary drag during the swim, bike and run. 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.

  • Lightweight, moisture wicking Skin Cooler Octovent™  fabric on the front  (see images!)
  • Skin Cooler 90™  fabric on back, side panels, sleeves, and neckline collar for cooling comfort.
  • Both Skin Cooler fabrics block 90% of UVB rays while lowering body temperature
  • Aerodynamic race fit
  • Full-front YKK® zip for easy, on-the-go ventilation 
  • Bottom zip garage for comfort
  • 3 back pockets to store training/racing essentials
  • Skin Cooler 90™ sleeves designed for more comfort in the aero position
  • Strong and durable, yet non-abrasive contrast flat-stitch
  • Works well for swimming when worn under a wetsuit
  • Not recommended for repeated use in a chlorinated pool
  • Made in USA
    What makes ours different?  Our Skin Cooler fiber is designed to feel and perform like silk (from a silkworm).  Through Biomimicry, we took the virtues of this natural fiber and created a synthetic silk.  It will keep you cool in hot weather and cooler when it is wet.  Put it on and you will instantly feel the cool sensation.  Wet it and you will notice a drop in the surface temperature of the skin between 7 and 10 degrees.

     

    A MEDICAL TESTIM0NIAL:  We received this letter from a respected Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon:

     I am an avid runner and triathlete and I recently discovered your Skin Cooler products, of which I'm a huge fan.  I have been wearing them for a few months now and couldn't be happier.  I am a dermatologist and Mohs surgeon.   Every patient I see is plagued by basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, or melanoma.  I recommend your products to my active patients on a daily basis.  It allows them to continue their active lifestyle while protecting themselves from the sun. I find your product to be far superior to all other cooling and sun protective lines.  I truly appreciate your efforts and innovations. 


    Note: No garment should ever be a substitute so we always recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these, and all, products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen's (whichever brand you may choose) SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.

    Enjoying the DeSoto full zip top

    I purchased this item for use in an ironman triathlon in November. I've been able to test it on a number of occasions thus far. Without a doubt, this has become my favorite overall cycling jersey. Light and cool with an excellent fit that is snug without binding or restricting movement. Pockets are easy to access. I don't know what more I could want in a cycling or triathlon jersey.

    Great Top for Triathlon or Cycling

    Fantastic top. I've used it for brick workouts, training rides and an Ironman race. Comfortable fit with easily accessible pockets that are snug. I highly recommend this for cycling or triathlon.

    Love it!

    Fits and looks great! Never disappointed with DeSoto clothing. Always of the highest quality and lasts, seemingly, forever. The team at DeSoto always goes above and beyond in everything they do. I have had nothing but great experiences with them over the years. One of many reasons why I keep coming back year after year for my cycling and running equipment (apparel). They are the best!

    Keeps me cool!

    I own 3 De Soto kits now and I wouldn't trade them for anything. In the heat of the summer, they are my go to tops. I suffer pretty bad in the heat down here in the south and I've noticed a considerable improvement in how I feel when I wear my De Soto gear. I wouldn't even think of racing in anything else. I was on a local club team for a few years and the requirement to wear their kits rather than what was comfortable for me is one of the things that ended up driving me away. And they are quality! My oldest top is almost 6 years old and is still in great shape!
