A popular choice amongst athletes, Blue Seventy’s latest Swimskin builds on over ten years of development to bring you a piece of kit that provides optimal compression, fit and speed.
Please note that this product is occasionally purchased as an insurance policy in case an Ironman event is declared non wetsuit. For this reason we are more than happy to exchange for a different size, however we will not be able to refund in full. We will refund 70% in the form of a store credit - effectively charging a 30% rental fee which is similar to what we charge for our wetsuit rentals.
Why choose a Swimskin?
Swimskins have been proven to reduce your drag significantly in the water when used in non-wetsuit events, taking minutes of your swim time whilst also improving the position of your body as you swim.
The PZ4TX+ furthers our drive to maximize performance in non-wetsuit swims. Over a year of extensive testing with professional and amateur athletes has produced a short sleeve version of our industry-leading PZ4 that meets the demands of the sport's elite. We've hand selected the Italian fabrics featured in this suit from renowned textile manufacturer Taiana. They were developed for our competition pool suits with hydrophobic qualities built into the yarns. These fabrics are infused to repel water instead of after-market coatings that can lose their water repellency over time. The development of the short sleeves was conducted over countless hours of testing with and without a tri suit underneath to ensure an excellent fit, flexibility and improved hydrodynamics in the water.
Based in New Zealand, BlueSeventy focus on providing top quality products for swimmers.
Since 2006, they have been working on improving and developing their Swimskin. The PZ4TX is their latest highly advanced version that offers many of the benefits of a wetsuit whilst adhering to all the legal requirements for all non-wetsuit swims.
