*Best in Class*
This marvel of a suit feels fantastic on the shoulders, thanks to precise seam placement in the chest/shoulder panels. Core rotation also feels unimpeded, and buoyancy is moderate—quite an accomplishment for a suit this flexible. Wetsuits generally give hyperflexibility but not much buoyancy or vice versa. With that said, be careful taking it on and off, as the wrists are somewhat delicate—cut down the practice usage and save this baby for important races to max its life-to-money-spent ratio. (Note: Should you hurt this precious bundle of joy, it does come with a two-year warranty.) This is the serious triathlete’s secret weapon for throwing down some fast swim splits this year.
