Best for: Core stability and cold-water swims

Aqua Sphere updated its entire lineup of wetsuits in 2016 and the new Racer has a striking aesthetic with some trickle-down features from the range-topping Phantom, but at this price, we would like more flexibility through the shoulders. The 2mm panels on the shoulders and sleeves are thicker than similarly priced wetsuits and that additional thickness provides some extra warmth. The lower body also benefits from buoyancy, and the quick release ankle panels make the suit easy to stomp off.
