AQUA Sphere Racer 2.0

The Draw: Pro forearm proprioception

This suit feels fast and streamlined, thanks to a combo of stretchy neoprene and thin forearms. The stretch makes it fit like a glove (like a wetsuit?)—a surprise because when you first look at it, you’ll probably think the appropriate size for your height and weight is too small. But never fear, it expands, and though the neck is tight, it isn’t uncomfortable and does an excellent job of keeping water out. The thin forearms feel almost like bare skin, allowing for excellent proprioception. The Racer 2.0 floats you in a neutral position—with gentle help, but not too much, and also gives some help with rotation. Easy off!
