Sizing: Please refer to the size chart button above for sizing guidance. 
Fit Type: Compressive
Fit Note:
  If you have a long torso, or if you are tall and lean, and in search of a one-piece trisuit, this is the one for you. 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.

 Features & Benefits:

  • Short Sleeves for more cooling and sun protection
  • Fli-fly™ hidden fly just above the pad, in front for quick on-the-fly bathroom “relief.”
  • Choose between 4mm Clasico Integrated Pad, 7mm Clasico Integrated Pad, or Fleece Pad.
  • Upper body made of De Soto innovative Skin Cooler 90 Fabric for 90 UVB sun protection.
  • Lower body made of Forza Compressor fabric and includes our new 3-inch 2-piece Mobius™ Comfort Compression leg-bands that offer compression without tight constriction.
  • Solid black Liftfoil™ center panels provide durability and comfort. We intentionally kept these as black “modesty” panels in the crotch area of all models including the white version to avoid saddle stains while creating a flattering appearance.
  • 16-inch YKK® front zipper for on-the-go ventilation
  • This suit has 5 utility pockets to fit all your racing needs
  • Curvilinear™ seamlines, and contrast flatstitch offer support, comfort and aerodynamic advantage
  • Swim, bike, and run in comfort without changing. Race with it under your wetsuit!

  • This environmentally-friendly innovation is completely free of solvents and the dyes used have no VOC
  • Not recommended for repeated use in a chlorinated pool
  • Made in USA

GREAT NEWS: Sleeved Trisuits are now legal for use in Ironman and 70.3 races, and it remains legal in many other races not owned by WTC. This trisuit was designed for this very purpose, with hydrodynamics as a factor, not just aerodynamics.

    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 Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon Dr. Michael Bax.* 

     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 at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY.  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.

    ***Dr. Bax has no financial investment in De Soto Sport and was not solicited nor compensated in any way for his letter.

    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.

    Forza Flisuit

    I was very pleased with my experience with the BYOS process. My Forza Flisuit fits perfectly but is not as restrictive in the chest and shoulders as some other trisuits. I am 6'2" and 175 pounds and large fits perfectly.

    Forza vs Rivera

    Excellent---I also have the Rivera and that model fits my body type better. I didn't realize the differences between the two from the details provided on site. I ultimately saw it reflected on site, but only after I bought the Forza. The sizing differences were not as transparent on site as I hoped.

    Fantastic Suit

    One of the most well constructed athletic garments i've ever worn, extremely efficient sweat wicking and high quality materials. With regards to swimming, the sleeve design causes some chafing rashes on the underside of the arms, likely due to a seam or the way that they bunch when you lift your hands over your head. This may be fixed when swimming in a wetsuit. Another small concern, perhaps due to the tighness of the suit even with the increased torso length of the BYOS, is increased pressure on the shoulders when swimming, and I wonder if that will make a significant difference at longer distances (Ironman, etc).The 7mm pad is great so far, the only improvement i might ask for would be making the pad a little wider. Since the principal reason behind going with the BYOS suit was the larger size, i don't know if it's possible to offer multiple widths/lengths of the chamois, but it feels a little undersized for me (6'6, 208 lbs). Overall these are small nitpicks offered due to the pricepoint of the suit and the already high standard that DeSoto has set for itself and the market as a whole.

    Size doesn’t fit for one piece item

    Overall I’m very pleased with your products (I mainly buy through Amazon). High quality and wears very well. I tried this one piece set and unfortunately the top part was to loose and only bottom portion felt fit. I tried to return but was told that is not possible (product is not used and have all tags). Since I’m valued customers of your products (mainly through Amazon) its very disappointing that I was not able to return this one product

    Hello Pawel, I'm terribly sorry the suit doesn't fit. Due to the nature of building a custom trisuit we are unable to accept returns on this one style. We indicate this on the top of the product page in bold letters to inform our customers prior to placing an order. ~De Soto Sport

    The size chart above should serve as a general guide. If you would like assistance in determining the proper size, please send the following information to contact@desotosport.com.

    WEIGHT - Accuracy helps us provide a more accurate size for you.
    CHEST - Fullest part of breast, measured as the largest part of circumference right over the pectoral muscle.
    WAIST -  Circumference measured at the belly-button line - this is NOT the same as your pants waist size.
    HIPS - Circumference measured at the widest point, NOT at your hips where your belt may go. Typically this will measure just a few inches below your hip bones and around the largest part of the glutes.

    If you do not have a tape measure and you need something to measure with, use a belt, or smart phone power cord, and a ruler.
