2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Wetsuits

Aqua Sphere Powered W-Pursuit $250

The Pursuit emulates a lot of the features of Aqua Sphere’s higher-end suit, the Racer, but with a more generous fit and slightly less flexibility throughout. Although its arms felt slightly less flexible than the Racer, the difference was subtle. Both the core and shoulders are slightly roomier in this suit. The Pursuit uses 5mm neoprene around the core for added warmth and buoyancy, helping to position the swimmer high in the water. The ankle is constructed with the same flexible panel as its higher-end sibling, allowing for quick removal in T1. Aquasphereswim.com
