Zoot Z Force 3.0 SL

The draw: Subtle form enhancement

Think of the Z Force as the retouch tool for body position, gently raising your hips, encouraging rotation and making your kick effortless. The high neck feels snug at first, but after a few strokes you’ll forget about the tightness and appreciate how well it keeps water out. Not-too-thick neoprene means you won’t overheat in warmer water. Plus, we love the look: business black on the outside, party pink on the inside.
