A Swimskin that has been specifically developed to increase your speed and power through the water.
Swimskins are occasionally purchased as an insurance policy. Our standard returns period will apply to Swimskins, however if they are not returned for a size exchange, any refund will be in the form of a 75% store credit. So there is an effective 25% rental fee.
Why Choose a Swimskin?
Swimskins have been proven to reduce your drag significantly in the water when used in non-wetsuit events, taking minutes off your swim time whilst also improving the position of your body as you swim.
The Albacore Range:
The Albacore Range was originally inspired by the work of US researchers in the 1950s who aimed to make the most hydrodynamic and agile submarine in the world - The Albacore. HUUB have taken this fusion of science, research and reality and used it as inspiration for their Albacore project, with a mission to develop the fastest products both in and out of the water.
With the Albacore Swimskin, HUUB have come up with a fantastic alternative to a wetsuit during non-wetsuit swims that helps to reduce your frontal drag and provide vital buoyancy. It offers superior hydrophobic properties and streamlining effects, without the constriction of a traditional wetsuit.
The Swimskin uses HUUB's 'Constrictor System' to reduce wasted energy and improve stroke efficiency. With a warp knit high compression and hydrophobic (water resistant) fabric, the swimskin compresses your body mass in the water and 'retunes' your centre of gravity. The constrictor system reduces the risk of your snaking in the water and simultaneously helps to improve your stroke pull. The combination of the two creates a suit that supports a faster and more efficient stroke that you will notice as soon as you take to the water.
