Wetsuits

One of our wetsuits will definitely fit you. Whether you are a swimmer, triathlete, diver or surfer - we have a wide range of wetsuits, neoprene shoes, neoprene gloves and neoprene hoods. First and foremost, a neoprene should protect you from the cold and provide thermal protection. Basically, the thicker the wetsuit, the warmer the suit. Neoprene thicknesses are measured in millimeters and are usually indicated in the product name. Here, the first number refers to the thickness in the area of the torso, the second number stands for the extremities. The most commonly used neoprene thicknesses are 3/2 mm, 4/3 mm or 5/4 mm.

For different water temperatures, in addition to the neoprene thickness, the cut of the wetsuit is also decisive. A jumpsuit or shorty has shorter sleeves and/or legs and is suitable for warmer conditions. A steamer or fullsuit covers the whole body and is suitable for colder temperatures.

There are different zipper systems for wetsuits. With front zips, the zipper is on the chest and is often found on jumpsuits for warmer water. A classic back-zip is located on the back and allows for easier donning thanks to the large opening. A Chest-Zip is attached to the upper chest and offers improved protection from entering water. No-Zip or Zip-Less wetsuits are among the most comfortable systems because they no longer have a zipper. This makes putting on and taking off the wetsuit a little more difficult, but virtually no more water enters.

When choosing the size of the wetsuit, make sure that it feels almost uncomfortably tight out of the water and that it is difficult to put on and does not restrict the movement of your arms. Once you are in the water, the suit expands and becomes comfortable and mobile. For swimrun competitions, special wetsuits have been developed with additional pockets and loops to create space for energy bars or other accessories.
