Our philosophy has always been to create female-specific wetsuits for women and male-specific wetsuits for men, to deliver ultimate gains to both.
The women’s market demanded the unrivalled flexibility of the Agilis, so we designed this pure female wetsuit with our unique 3:3 buoyancy profile to deliver maximum performance for female athletes.
Since the first women’s triathlon wetsuit was created, other brands have reshaped their men’s suits to fit women. Our very first women’s triathlon wetsuit in 2011, was a women’s specific suit, designed from scratch for the women’s form – it wasn’t a women’s fit men’s suit.
We have been working with the Brownlee brothers to create our best collaboration yet – the ultimate wetsuit for elite performance. It has been a two-year development, two years of testing and approving with the Brownlees sitting alongside us every step of the way as our testers and developers. They accept no compromise, no “could it be better?” If it isn’t the best, then they are not interested. Listening to Alistair and Jonny has given us a suit like no other, a suit with two very simple goals.
The Brownlees wanted to be able to:
It is these two simple requests that led us to investigate materials, stretch, swim strokes and how materials behaved under tension. We have now created a new Arms Neutral™ position reducing the typical maximum stretch cycle down by 50%. Your stroking style with a wetsuit can now mimic your stroking style without a wetsuit delivering a Rotational Freedom™ never before felt – “a game-changer ” according to the Brownlees.
New buoyancy materials deliver never before seen leg lift and lower body buoyancy within regulatory rules. HUUB’s exclusive +43™ buoyancy foam provides 43% more buoyancy than standard neoprene. Typically wetsuit companies add extra buoyancy to the thighs and hips, but on this suit, the +43™ material goes past the centre of buoyancy for maximum leg lift.
Thanks to the input of Alistair, Jonny and professor Huub Toussaint we are now confident in saying there is no faster wetsuit. This is what the triathlete has been waiting for, a no-compromise suit for race day. Alistair and Jonny will not sacrifice their performance for anything, so it will come as no surprise that they will not turn to a suit unless it REALLY is the very best they have ever swum in.
Receiving that kind of feedback from the brothers is something that isn’t achievable without immense knowledge and a great source of input. This suit really is a beautiful piece of equipment to swim in. Simple yet incredibly effective packed with technologies that cannot be seen, but as we say, “its what you don’t that see makes you faster.”
