Huub Archimedes

The draw: Powerfully responsive

Whether swimming easy for warm-up or fast during a race, this suit responds without added strain on the hips or shoulders. The wetsuit synchronizes with any style of stroke technique: hip-driven, shoulder-driven or hybrid. Once the suit is over the hips, it has a relaxed and conforming touch on the whole body that transfers into the water. Make sure to get the suit wet before racing to allow it to settle into place, which helps seal the neck and wrists.
