2XU X:3

The draw: Outrageous flexibility

Strategically placing thick panels of extra buoyant aerated neoprene and thin ones for pure flexibility gives the X:3 freedom of movement without compromising lift. The arms spin freely and the suit complements any type of freestyle stroke. Lift through the hips and upper body helps prop the swimmer, and the suit feels comparably buoyant to other top-caliber wetsuits. Fit is tight and suited to athletic builds, although the stretchable chest panels conform to the swimmer’s physique.
