Triathlon Magazine Canada - - DEPARTMENTS -

We all know how rough swim­ming pools can be on our swim gear – no mat­ter how much you care for them, chlo­rine does a num­ber on swim­suits. There’s an up­side to that, though – get­ting to pick up a new suit on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. While per­for­mance isn’t as crit­i­cal when it comes to a train­ing suit, those who com­pete in masters com­pe­ti­tions or non-wet­suit open-wa­ter swim races might be in­ter­ested in a high-tech op­tion de­signed to help you per­form at your ab­so­lute best. We’ve got some­thing on all fronts for you in our swimgear re­view.

Blue­sev­enty En­ergy Jam­mer

$54 De­signed with train­ing in mind, the En­ergy Jam­mer of­fers a longer cut that pro­vides lots of leg cov­er­age and ex­tra front pan­el­ing for added sup­port. Built with Dar­win fab­ric, you get lots of per­for­mance and dura­bil­ity in an ex­tremely com­fort­able suit.

Speedo Fierce Flow Fly­back One Piece

$84 With its square neck­line, sleek fit and racer­back style, this suit is ex­tremely com­fort­able and durable, but re­mains nice and quick, mak­ing it an out­stand­ing train­ing suit. It’s dou­ble-lined and of­fers full bum cov­er­age to en­sure lots of sup­port, while the racer­back straps, large open back and com­pet­i­tive leg line make for an ex­tremely com­fort­able fit. The chlo­rine-re­sis­tant ma­te­rial will re­tain its shape and colour through months of pool train­ing swims.

TYR Women’s Avic­tor Venom Open Back Swim­suit

$650 The Avic­tor suits are de­signed for the world’s fastest swim­mers, and you’ll likely see the lim­ited edi­tion venom print at var­i­ous na­tional and in­ter­na­tional swim meets. This is a suit geared for max­i­mum speed, re­served for meets and com­pet­i­tive swim com­pe­ti­tions, or a non-wet­suit triathlon swim where you’re look­ing to kill the swim leg. (Masters swim­mers take note.) Us­ing Hy­drop­shere Tech­nol­ogy, the ma­te­rial in this suit both op­ti­mizes your po­si­tion and re­duces drag to help you slide through the wa­ter – the suit lit­er­ally re­pels wa­ter. The ma­te­rial also pro­vides op­ti­mal com­pres­sion and lots of stretch, even as it gets wet, pro­vid­ing lots of com­fort and sup­port, even through the long­est swims.—KM
