The RS1 Swimrun Wetsuit is one of the most flexible on the market. The suit is formed from both stretchy nylon and durable neoprene, with just 1.5mm thick neoprene shoulders and 2mm arm and crotch panels. This keeps you protected and insulated; whilst ensuring freedom of movement.
The buoyancy from the neoprene also helps to promote good posture in the water and support your core. The suit’s rear has been treated with anti-abrasion technology so that any small scratches or falls will not inhibit the level of protection and support the suit gives. Once you are out of the water, you can simply and quickly remove the sleeves of the suit to help you to cool down. There is also a frontal zip so that you can unzip it as you wish once you are running; this will also allow you more freedom of movement.
REMOVABLE ARMS – being able to remove the arms from this suit sets it apart from the rest. When swimming, the arms can be attached for extra buoyancy and warmth, and when running they can be detached for ventilation to help you stay cool.
TWO POCKETS – this is a handy extra, as not many wetsuits will have an exterior pocket. They can be used to house a GPS system and other small items which you may need during your swim and run.
WATERPROOF – impermeable material means that your weight will not vary and thus affect your stroke or time.
FLEXIBLE – the suit has different materials throughout, and in the places where you need flexibility the most there is a stretchy nylon to promote freedom of movement. In areas such as the shoulders, arms and crotch the neoprene is 1.5mm and 2mm respectively.
BUOYANCY - the RS1 has 9mm front leg panels, and 3mm front and back panels to improve your posture when swimming and to keep you warm.
- DURABLE – the lower rear panel of the suit has been treated with DuraSkin technology. This means that your suit will be protected if it is scratched or if you fall.
