WHAT KIND OF TRIATHLETES IS THIS WETSUIT FOR?

The LD neoprene wetsuit is aimed at regular triathletes for whom swimming is not the strong point. That's because this wetsuit provides buoyancy, which will automatically correct your position so that your legs are horizontal and you can benefit from the “pull-buoy” effect. This allows you to rest your legs during the swimming section, ready for the for the bike and run.

A SECOND SKIN FOR SWIMMING FREELY

Jérémie, our product manager, tells us about it:
"We tried to develop a product that was as flexible as possible and perfectly shaped to each rotation point, both in terms of pattern cutting and the fabrics used. Therefore, we used 1.5 mm neoprene and a super stretch jersey at the shoulders, providing the neoprene with maximum flexibility.”

ENHANCED HYDRODYNAMICS

To cycle fast, you make yourself as low as possible on your bike. In other words, you try to be aerodynamic. For swimming too, you should have as little resistance as possible. That's why Air Neoprene was used; to help buoyancy and therefore horizontality. But that's not all. This wetsuit's neoprene has also received a treatment that allows it to glide and makes it more hydrodynamic, called glideskin.

QUICKLY PULL YOUR WETSUIT ON AND OFF

The wetsuit has an inverted zip, so fastens from top to bottom. When you come out of the water, you just pull the fastening tab upwards to open the wetsuit. The inverted zip also prevents another triathlete from accidentally opening the zip while swimming.
The tapered cut at the feet also makes it easier to pull off. In fact, you can cut up to an extra 10 cm off at the arms and legs to adjust your length.

FOCUS ON THE SENSITIVE NECK AREA

The pattern cutting of the neck required a lot of thought and experimentation before getting to where it is today. We lowered and tweaked it as much as possible for greater comfort and to avoid any chafing caused by head rotation when you breathe. Of course, we also devoted special attention to preventing water from coming into your wetsuit!

WHY WEAR A NEOPRENE WETSUIT FOR THE SWIMMING LEG OF TRIATHLONS?

Regulations governing the use of neoprene triathlon wetsuits are managed by the International Triathlon Federation (ITU), which prohibits wetsuits when the water temperature is higher than 24°C, and makes them mandatory below 16°C. Between 16 and 24°C, it's up to you. However, most triathletes prefer to wear a wetsuit since for most of us, they provide precious help ;-)
