HUUB Brown­lee Agilis

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - 2019 BUYER'S GUIDE -

$1,200 De­signed with in­put from the Olympic medal- win­ning Brown­lee brothers, the Agilis was de­signed with two spe­cific goals: the Brown­lees wanted to feel like they weren’t wear­ing a wet­suit, but also have a suit that got their hips and legs high in the wa­ter to get them the most ben­e­fit from wear­ing a wet­suit. The re­sult is the Agilis, which uses a va­ri­ety of new high-grade neo­prene to achieve the de­sired re­sults. Huub’s +43 buoy­ancy foam pro­vides 43 per cent more buoy­ancy than stan­dard neo­prene, so they didn’t have to add more rub­ber to get the de­sired lift and were able to get added leg lift with­out hav­ing to make a su­per-thick suit. The new Arms Neu­tral po­si­tion al­lows you to mimic your reg­u­lar swim stroke with­out feel­ing like you’re en­cased in rub­ber, which is ex­actly what high-end swim­mers like the Brown­lees are af­ter. Add in the break­away zip­per to help you fly through tran­si­tion and the pressed neck edge for com­fort, and you have a suit that will keep even an Olympic gold medal­ist happy.
