TYR Hurricane Cat 1 Sleeveless
Best for: Strong kickers
Unique feature: Slick neoprene for minimal drag
You might just want to sleep in the Cat 1. Super soft in and out, this suit is also very stretchy—a feature you don’t often find in suits at this low price point. That makes the legs feel like you’re wearing your favorite yoga pants and leaves your kick totally unrestrained. In fact, if you like to switch up strokes while you’re training or racing, the Cat 1 will kindly let you get your frog kick on. While the neck is the most comfortable we’ve found on a sleeveless suit, the super wide cut of the shoulders on top may impede some swimmers’ strokes.
