We review ZeroD’s iron-distance tri suit.

ZeroD i-suit

We really rated ZeroD’s impressive oSuit in Issue 40’s tri-suit group test (find it on triradar.com if you missed it) so we were keen to see how this long-distance iSuit measured up to the Olympic-distance version. Although still a one-piece with the main zip at the back, the iSuit features a short front zip for extra ventilation; mesh panels covering the sides of the torso; and additional gel pockets on the outsides of the legs. The suit also has a more relaxed fit to keep things comfy during long days of racing, but still feels snug and supportive. The Water Wear Weapon fabric is one of the fastest wicking out there and will see you virtually dry by the time you grab your bike after a wetsuit swim. The bike pad, though a little more substantial than the oSuit’s, doesn’t offer the same comfort on the bike as that of Orca’s long-distance 226 range, but is more flexible on the run, so bear your preference in mind when choosing.

Verdict
A pro-level one piece for longer distances and also great for shorter events.

Performance 4/5
