Nineteen Pipeline SL

The draw: Unencumbered feel

The Pipeline goes on and comes off exceptionally easily. When you jump in, feel free to spin the arms as fast as possible without any consequence for your stroke mechanics. It may feel somewhat tight on land, but the body will loosen up in the water and won’t impair your kick or hip rotation. If you find water rushing into the chest, go with a smaller size.
