With unrivalled hydrophobic properties and streamlining effects, the HUUB Swimskin provides many of the benefits of a wetsuit yet can be used in non-wetsuit events.
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 Albacore Swimskin is the combination of unparalleled industry expertise, unmatched hydrodynamics knowledge and the ability to test products far beyond any triathlon or swimwear company. Here at HUUB we simply make you faster, through traditional and some very untraditional designs.
By using our patent pending and “Constrictor system” we are able to reduce wasted energy and improve stroke efficiency to the tune of up to 4.5 seconds per 100m (Tested by Paul Newsome from Swimsmooth among many other athletes on the HUUB M.A.D System)
Warp knit high compression and hydrophobic fabric delivers compression of body mass in the water and a re-tuned centre of gravity. The constrictor system reduces snaking and improves stroke pull through never before seen thinking and application. The combination is a fast and efficient swimskin that WILL deliver.
You can have a swimskin, or you can swim faster in a HUUB researched and scientifically developed piece of Swim Engineering… Albacore, "the Relentless search for Speed
The HUUB SKN-1 is made from engineered water resistant fabric that also provides compression – working to give you an advantage in the water. The material is designed to help you increase your speed, with a smooth surface, and the design mimics the structure of HUUB’s X-O Skeleton used in their wetsuits.
Use a pair of buoyancy shorts during training to improve your technique by promoting hip rotation whilst keeping your legs high in the water.
