2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Wetsuits

Aqua Sphere Powered W-Racer $499

The Racer is for swimmers focused on performance, with a tighter fit than Aqua Sphere’s lower-end suits. The arms of the suit are long, with narrow wrist cuffs that keep water out and forearm panels that help with traction during the pull. The thinner material that runs under the armpit and around the lower back allows for an incredible range of motion and creates uninhibited arm flexibility. The panel near the ankle makes taking the suit on and off significantly easier. Aquasphereswim.com
