Quick Overview

The Black Pearl suit is lined with 4-way stretch Nylon Lycra® to minimize chafing. It is 5mm thick from the ankle to just above the hips. Above the hips, it is 3mm thick. All seams are glued and blind-stitched, making them stronger than the rubber itself. All models feature sleek graphics and are sold as separates for a more customized fit.

All T1 Wetsuits are made of GreenGoma™ a limestone rubber…bye-bye petroleum wetsuits.

GreenGoma™ rubber offers better stretch, buoyancy, durability, and insulation with a more closed-cell injected construction thus making it 98.9% water impermeable. So it is lighter, it dries quicker, and lasts longer. The only part of the rubber that gets wet is the new stretch liner that is now made of recycled post consumer products

De Soto  has seamlessly replaced one rubber with another that is better, more buoyant, helps you swim faster, and lasts longer. If nothing else were to change, you will have a better-performing product with less detriment to the environment, which is always their goal.
