DeSoto T1 First Wave Concept 5 Pullover Wetsuit - 2022
The two-piece design of the T1 Wetsuits offer more comfort and less restriction. Because the top and bottom are not attached, you have much more freedom of movement and there is no “torso-rubber stretch” or shoulder fatigue that occurs with one-piece wetsuits. All T1 models are sold as separates for a more customized and personal fit. With up to seven sizes of tops and bottoms, you have 49 possible size combinations from which to choose. Other features we innovated many years ago include lower necklines and thicker rubber in the legs and hips to help float the largest bones and muscles in the body. More floatation here means more speed. T1 Wetsuits are not filled with gimmicks, just physics.
If your arms are bigger, you'd swim faster! If you could float more, you'd swim faster! This pullover incorporates both concepts and is legal in WTC & USAT events. T1 First Wave Concept 5 and T1 First Wave Pullovers are identical with the exception of the sleeve thickness. Concept 5 has 5 mm sleeves and First wave has 2mm sleeves. The difference is like adding about 3-4 additional fingers of surface area to each hand. The best way to see how significant that difference would be is to try swimming with just one or two of your fingers open and the others bent down.
