The Draw: Rotational Savior
Affordability and performance in one! We liked this suit for its all-around flexibility and loved it for its ability to improve rotation and hip position—a problem point for many men. “The sensation could be described as graceful, drag-free gliding on my side,” our tester said. Best for warmer conditions at around 70-80 degrees (obvi, it’s sleeveless), the A:1 will suit all triathletes no matter their level of experience with one possible exception: Clydesdales may find they want a little more buoyancy to prop their hips up for easier open-water sighting.
