The HUUB Alpha Open Water Swimming wetsuit has been designed to offer fantastic flexibility while having the buoyancy required to give the most comfortable swimming position.
- 2:3 buoyancy combination - for improved body position and reduced drag.
- Scientifically researched neoprene thickness combination.
- 1.5mm under arm thickness - for maximum flexibility.
- Glide skin neoprene - for reduced surface drag.
- Specific panel placements - for flexibility and efficiency.
- Speed cut ankle & smooth skin cuffs - for ease of exit.
- Flatlock construction.
Not polyester jersey panels (which holds water). The Alpha suit is 100% Neoprene.
The days of adding the thickest neoprene panels to the chest and legs have long gone because we know that by adding more buoyancy to the legs and less to the chest we can reduce the frontal drag of the wetsuit, and put you in a better swim position.
An addition to our range of award-winning suits, created with HUUB’s renowned attention to detail and scientific knowledge, wrapped in a package of performance and stunning value. And for the first time, we have managed to introduce our new highly flexible flat-lock construction method found on thinner material wetsuits, delivering a great feeling wetsuit. Alpha is the ideal first-timers wetsuit.
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.
