Wetsuit sizing is one of the hardest but most crucial parts of selecting the best wetsuit. Getting the right-sized wetsuit can be a trial and error process. For this reason, we advise trying on a range of different wetsuits in different sizes and different makes and models as the exact shape and size of a wetsuit can vary even between wetsuits from the same brand. Quite often the manufactures size guides don’t reflect the best size for you. We have a range of wetsuits available to try in our store in Aberdeen. If you are unsure what size please contact us and we can help advise on the correct size.
The Athlex Float is a new (r)evolution of the Orca S7.
The new Athlex Float triathlon wetsuit combines high buoyancy with high elasticity, resulting in a very balanced wetsuit for swimmers who need added buoyancy to correct their positioning in the water. Thinner upper body and thick leg materials allow swimmers to tackle triathlons with confidence.
39+: The increased flexibility of Yamamoto 39 neoprene, combined with the high elasticity of Inifinty Skin 2 lining, provides open water swimmers with maximum freedom of movement. Thanks to this combination, 35% less force is required in fast movements than in conventional neoprene. For slow movements and wider strokes, 45% less force is required than in conventional neoprene. SCS coating also helps reduce friction and water resistance, improving hydrodynamics and increasing speed.
39 FS: Elasticity, maximum flexibility and total freedom of movement are brought together thanks to the combination of Yamamoto 39 neoprene, Infinity Skin 2 lining and Smoothskin surface finish. With this combination, the open water swimmer will use 35% less force in fast movements and short strokes, while slower and wider movements will require 45% less force than any other conventional neoprene.
38+: Yamamoto 38 provides more compression for a better fitting wetsuit, for greater comfort when swimming in open water. For greater hydrodynamics, SCS coating is used which reduces water resistance, increasing speed.
