The Brownlee’s and HUUB have collaborated to produce the ultimate wetsuit for race performance.
It has been a two-year development, with the Brownlee’s sitting alongside HUUB every step of the way as their testers and developers. They accept no compromise; if it isn’t the best, then they are not interested… So, listening to Alistair and Jonny, coupled with the input of professor Huub Toussaint has produced a wetsuit like no other, and given HUUB the confidence to say there is no faster wetsuit.
The Brownlee’s had two very simple goals and wanted to be able to:
- Swim like they’re not wearing a wetsuit throughout the full stroke cycle.
- Get their hips and legs as high as possible and keep them there.
HUUB investigated materials, stretch, swim strokes and how materials behaved under tension to create 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™ – “a game changer” according to the Brownlee’s.
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.
HUUB’s founder and owner Dean Jackson commented “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.”
The Brownlee’s summed up their thoughts in a video trailer for the new wetsuit which you can view here. Jonny Brownlee text Deano (HUUB’s owner) after his first swim saying, “it’s a game changer”, and Alistair has said the same as well as “I can finally swim so naturally in a wetsuit.”
HUUB only have a limited amount of stock, with the second delivery arriving in late August. You can view the full Brownlee Agilis video here.
