We review O2 Creation’s one-piece long distance tri suit.
O2 Creation Endurance
This one-piece from O2 Creation is designed for long-course tri and features four enveloped pockets on the legs for gel storage. The material is comfy enough for long days with the thin, smooth fabric supporting muscles without being over-tight and the stretchy, flatlocked seams keeping chafing to a minimum. The suit didn’t drag in the water and dried quickly under the sun. The pad is panelled and remained comfortable on the bike, though isn’t quite as substantial as Orca’s top long-distance liners. The suit was superb on the run, with no restriction of movement. There is the practicality of a one-piece to consider for day-long events (O2 Creation also offer a two-piece though) and the front zip could do with being a little bit longer for maximum ventilation when the temperatures soar.
A really comfortable suit that’s as suited to shorter races as long days out.
