Best wetsuit around!

After a long search and a great GGTC wetsuit expo, I’ve finally found my wetsuit! The Fit2Race HydroFlex wetsuit! It’s the best price around for a high quality performance wetsuit–only $130!

The owner, Paul, gave an excellent presentation on swimming techniques, both good and bad, as well as what to look for in a wetsuit. He showed us their newest product, the Sockeye, and I was impressed. Here’s it’s description from F2R’s website: “The Sockeye is designed to complement efficient and fast swimming with sleek aquatic qualities. Built with 5mm rubber thickness in the front chest and legs, 3mm in the back shoulders and 2mm in the arms and under arm gussets. Capitalizing on the aquatic qualities of rubber, the forearm catch panel blends 5mm rubber into its design. Glide, catch and lift yourself into potentially the fastest suit ever made. Escape transitions in effortless motion with our new flexible designed inner jersey. See what is winning races around the world.”

The Sockeye wetsuit was very tempting at the very competitive price of $300, but it’s still above my price point for a wetsuit at the moment. I’m going to get through my first triathlon to see how I like this intense sport before investing further. 🙂 Good news is that the HydroFlex is very similar to the Sockeye only missing the redesigned neck and larger forearm catch panels. I’m just going to have to use more body glide on my neck! 🙂

    Just got my F2R Sockeye today. Tried it on and was very impressed. The most amazing feature — how quickly it comes off! Paul at F2R says it has to do with the nylon lining they use. Let me assure you that it works! There’s twenty seconds saved right there. 😉 Looking forward to trying it out in Aquatic Park and at the upcoming GGTC Wildflower Training Weekend. Sweet!
