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.
