Trisuit – Liftfoil Speed Trisuit by De Soto

2011 Liftfoil Speed Trisuit – not rubberized

USAT approved and WTC Legal

This speedsuit has no rubberized material, no polyurethane, and no neoprene. It abides to WTC’s recent ruling on swimskins, speedskins, swim apparel…whatever WTC wants to call it.

De_Soto_Liftfoil_Speed_Tri_SuitNow we offer it with our colorful one-piece float pad (same pad found in our Forza Riviera Tri Short and Forza ITU Trisuit0. Since the pad floats, you swim faster. This unique pad stretches with the short and follows your skin as it moves on the bike and run, eliminating the friction that can cause irritation or rashes. The pad is a thin version of our famous 400-Mile Pad used in our bike shorts and bib shorts. Remember this speedsuit is also a Trisuit! Wear it the entire race!

The Liftfoil has no pockets and no lining. It is designed to help you swim faster during non-wetsuit swims. Designed with a front zipper (16-inch YKK® zipper) which allows you to ventilate by unzipping during the run. Hydrolinear™ seamlines hug your body while allowing for maximum reach and glide in your stroke, with no friction against your skin.

Our tests have shown varied improvements of swim times of about 4 seconds per 100 meters. This translates to 1’00” for 1500 meters and 2’40” for a swim of 4000 meters. Of course, as with all our products, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Test it for yourself. If you do not find it performs to your expectations, you may return it for a complete refund.

To summarize:

  1. Swim faster in it and use it either a speedsuit or a trisuit.
  2. Swim, bike and run it it.
  3. Made for races that do not allow wetsuits.
  4. No rubberized material, no polyurethane, no neoprene.
