Challenger Triathlon 3mm Wetsuit - Male


 

The Challenger Triathlon Wetsuit 

Our Challenger triathlon wetsuit is set to cause a storm in the triathlon world.

In simple terms, the value for money and list of features it offers for the price is unrivalled. We have taken over a year getting this wetsuit just right and are delighted with the finished result.

The wetsuit will deliver the warmth, flexibility, buoyancy and ease of exit that most triathletes are looking for and at a fraction of the price of comparable suits.

We estimate that if this suit was being sold through normal distribution channels it would cost in the region of £250.

So what's so special about it? Firstly the materials. We have trialed countless materials to find a grade of neorene that will give us the degree of flexibility we required for triathlon and finally settled on the Matsuda range of neoprene's that you see here.

The high degree of flexibility means that swimming in the suit is less restrictive than a standard wetsuit.


The main body area, which requires warmth and buoyancy, is made from 3mm neoprene. The arms and legs, which still require buoyancy but also need higher flexibility are made from 2mm neoprene and the under arm area is made from 1.5mm Matsuda Megastretch neoprene.

The underarm area is where most flexibility is required in a triathlon wetsuit as you overstretch this panel whilst extending your arm at the top of your swim stroke.

The wrist area traction panels of the suit are made from Matsuda Aquagrip Neoprene which helps to increase the amount of propulsive force transferred from your arms to the water.

Anatomical shape of suit


As you can see from the picture to the left , the cut of the suit is designed to follow the contours of the body and give a fit to your body that is like a 'second skin'.

The underarm area of the suit is key to makeing your swim stroke unrestricted. We've used Megastretch neoprene here to make sure you have low restriction at the full stretch of your swim stroke.

*The fit of your triathlon wetsuit is extremely important. If your wetsuit is too tight, you will find that it can chafe when swimming. If it is too loose then your suit will let water in which would create drag and also not keep you as warm.
