The HUUB Acara is in our opinion the greatest wetsuit for Women on the market today.
Huub created and refined the female buoyancy profile of a wetsuit to best optimise the female specific needs. The Acara presents 3:3 and 3:5 buoyancy along with unprecedented shoulder and arm flexibility coupled with new ground breaking technologies. Bicep Release and Calf Release exclusive to HUUB.
We asked the questions and tested our suits against our competitors and discovered a Womens suit needs to be more than a re-shaped Mens wetsuit.
- Unrivalled shoulder flexibilty
- Unique Bicep and Calf release for extra swim efficiency
- Upgraded X-O Skeleton offering more buoyancy around the hips
- Super flexible low neck line structure
- 13% modulus improvement redesigned underarm gusset
- Breakaway zipper
When looking at the size chart, we recommend that you firstly use the weight in KG for the most accurate body fit. We suggest you choose a size based on as close to the top end of each weight as you can get. Although important in the sizing decision, height is considered as the second choice after the weight.
Fitting your wetsuit
It is vitally important to get a close fitting wetsuit. Once you have an optimally fitted wetsuit on it feels like a second skin which is what makes it so effective when you are in the water. But with a garment that fits so tightly, the challenge is in how to get it on without damaging the suit or chafing or trapping your skin. Adjusting the suit to fit your body comfortably so that it doesn't cause discomfort whilst you are swimming also needs a little practice.
In this video, HUUB's Dean Jackson and Slovak triathlete Richard Varga show you top tips on how to get a close fitting triathlon wetsuit onto your body and how to adjust it for performance.
