2018 Buyer's Guide

TYR Hurricane Cat 1 Sleeveless

The Draw: Affordable Short-Course Aid

Barrel-chested guys, rejoice! This is your suit. Super easy on and lightning fast off, the Cat 1 helped our tester nail T1. The suit has a natural float—just enough to make sighting easier, and the neckline fit snug and comfortably without leaking or chafing. We recommend this suit for warmer, choppier water, as the shoulder design could cause long, gliding strokes to shorten up. And if you’ve got serious upper body muscle (or, you know, just serious upper body), you’ll love the fit. For anyone considering their first Olympic-distance or sprint race, this wallet-friendly option deserves a look.
