Dare2Tri Swim­skin Flyer S

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - DEPARTMENT -

$393 Swim­skins are al­ways a tricky sub­ject for Cana­dian triath­letes. The go-to suit for swims that are too warm for wet­suits at Iron­man events (you can’t use them at ITU races like the world cham­pi­onships), this isn’t a piece of equip­ment that you’re go­ing to be able to use a lot. But when you can wear one, for ex­am­ple at the Iron­man World Cham­pi­onship or at warm-wa­ter events like Iron­man Cozumel, they can chop lots of time off your swim split. Not as much as a full-fledged wet­suit, but enough to make a dif­fer­ence, es­pe­cially if you’re af­ter a Kona slot or podium fin­ish.

Dare2Tri’s swim­skin Flyer S of­fers some in­ter­est­ing in­no­va­tion to en­sure you’ll get the most out of your non-wet­suit swim split. There’s a C8 Hy­dropho­bic Coat­ing that helps you slip through the wa­ter and pro­vide added buoy­ancy. The highly com­pres­sive fab­ric and a spe­cial panel around the waist keep you stream­lined and pro­vide ex­tra core sta­bil­ity, while the sil­i­cone leg grip­pers en­sure the suit won’t ride up dur­ing your swim ef­forts.—KM
