Best Triathlon Wetsuits Review 2011
We’ve reviewed 12 of the best triathlon wetsuits out there, but which ones impressed our triradar.com testers most?
This suit, which used to sit at the top of 2XU’s range before the uber-technical X:1 came along last year, still represents a benchmark in brilliant wetsuit design. The Velocity strakes channels down the torso, designed to help improve body position and movement through the water, have now filtered down to some of the brand’s cheaper wetsuits but V:2 wearers get special panels on the forearms to help with your catch and a new titanium coating meant to improve bloodflow to swimmers’ legs. The fit and flexibility were perfect for our tester, with a nice low neck that wasn’t restrictive, but nonetheless kept water out. In our not-especially-scientific 100m test, the V:2 was in joint first place with the X:2, but more importantly it made us feel really good.
Comfortable, flexible, technical wetsuit that we loved swimming in.
