Reviewed: 10 Wetsuits for Triathletes

2XU A:1 Active Sleeveless

$280, 2xu.com
Best for: Stealth speed, “flat” swimmers

Don’t let the understated graphics—or the price—fool you. The A:1 is the little black dress of wetsuits—a go-to that’ll always make you look good in the water. It’ll help improve body position and decrease fatigue with plenty of float. It’ll also encourage good rotation so you get those shoulders up and out of the water with every stroke. The neck might feel snug when you cinch it up, but in the water you’ll forget about it and appreciate the no-leak seal. If you’ve got broad shoulders or just want an extra suit for warmer conditions, the A:1 will make a great addition to your gear cave.
