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

  • Not recommended for repeated use in a chlorinated pool

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

    Went with blue bee hive Forza Flisuit. Love the DeSoto products. Second trisuit in 5 years. First suit has held up great (about 24 races) but white fabric is getting dingy and wanted updated colors with sleeves. Was a little worried that is was too tight. I'm 5'5" 148 lbs and went with small. trained three days and then ran a full IM and was completely satisfied. No chaffing, no hot spots. Used the fli twice. Couldn't be happier with the performance.

    DeSoto Forza Flisuit BYOS

    Really happy with the whole experience. They helped me pick the right size when I asked for assistance and then despite telling me it would be 4 weeks to deliver I had it within a week. Highly recommend the suit and the company.

    Spectacular

    I have only used it for two workouts. One TT workout the other a 3 hour trainer ride and 30 minute run. Exceptionally comfortable, does not move. I cannot wait to race in this suit.

    Forza flisuit - great suit but not for the swim

    I love the way the Forza flisuit fits for the bike and run, but the material is too tight in the front for the swim. I had to roll it down under my swim skin and put it on in T1. I am 6'1" and 170 lb and wear a medium. Not a big deal but I bought this suit hoping it would work for the swim.

    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.
