MEN’S VER­DICT

220 Triathlon Magazine - - Kit Zone -

There was a full spec­trum of

price points and tech on test here, prov­ing that there’s plenty of in­no­va­tion and life­span left in the vested tri-suit mar­ket. At the value end, Dhb’s suit can’t be beaten. It has iden­ti­cal fea­tures and build qual­ity to suits a third more ex­pen­sive. It’s of­ten even cheaper on Wig­gle, but you’re onto a win­ner at the RRP price as it stands.

While Aropec’s suit will see

you through a few races it just isn’t quite up to the stan­dard of the other suits on test, although it’s not ter­ri­ble by any means. We weren’t thrilled by Orca’s Core suit, and found Lusso’s of­fer­ing a bet­ter choice be­tween the £75-£100 mark.

Huub’s DS just edges Zone3 in

the high-end techy suit bat­tle due to its fab­ric qual­ity and closer fit. But our Best on Test award goes to Manch­ester’s Airofin. It’s suit­able for ev­ery race dis­tance, in­clud­ing long-dis­tance triathlon, is very breath­able and the smart stor­age make it a great all-rounder. And at a sen­si­ble price, too.
