Aqua Sphere has introduced SwimRun suits to its stable of triathlon wetsuits and aqua skins. The company notes that this is ‘in response to the rising popularity of this fun dual sport activity’. The new Limitless sub-branded SwimRun suits combine the brand’s Thermo-Guard technology, to help retain body heat, with ‘super-stretch neoprene’. This is treated with Dura Glide skin coating to minimise surface friction and maximise energy efficiency.
Limitless SwimRun suits are configured using strategic panels of 1-5mm neoprene. Thin 1.5mm neoprene is utilised on the shoulders and armpits to deliver flexibility of movement when swimming. The 2mm sleeves are removable for warmer water conditions.
Easy-pull deep back and front zips enable fast on and off; and inside pockets on the front torso facilitate easy access to snacks and other small items. Special panels under the arms and crotch help to minimise chafing and maximise comfort whilst the configuration of neoprene in the thighs and hips ‘allows for excellent running movement’.
Priced at £249.99, the new Limitless suits for men and women deliver 100% UVA/UVB protection and are available from triathlon and swim retailers from end of February.
Other Aqua Sphere products for the growing sport of SwimRun include the Sporter shoe with its ergonomically shaped insole and purge valve. The brand also offers a pull buoy, swim gloves, Ergo Flex hand paddles and Alpha Fins.
