WHAT IS BIORUBBER TECHNOLOGY?

  • Bio-Rubber is a cutting-edge material which collects energy from the atmosphere and re-emits this energy for absorption into the body.
  • The infrared ray emitting material is formed from a synthetic rubber made in a honeycomb structure sandwiched between a technical woven thread to create a tri-lamination structure.
  • This use of light energy warms all the way through the legs and muscles and changes the way we feel warmth through technology.
  • The material is proven to increase the blood flow by opening the capillaries, which reduces lactic acid and fatigue build up in the legs, so they have more power available as soon as you exit the water.

 

HELPING ATHLETES TO FEEL THEIR BEST AS THEY HEAD INTO T2

 

WHAT IS TITANIUM ALPHA?

  • A unique material which consists of a five-layer structure, neoprene rubber coated with Titanium Alloy and then laminated with synthetic fibre jerseys.
  • The Titanium Alloy is an extremely thin film which provides effective heat retaining properties.
  • In fact, a double lined material with Titanium Alloy will be 40% warmer than regular neoprene.

 

NO NEGATIVE IMPACT ON BUOYANCY, FLEXIBILTY OR COMFORT.

 

WHAT IS SCS?

SCS (Super Composite Skin) is a coating applied to the surface of Smooth Skin neoprene, the primary material used in swim wetsuits. This coating creates a micellar structure with both hydrophilic (water-attracting) and hydrophobic (water-repelling) properties. As a result, the neoprene has less resistance when in contact with water.

This reduction in resistance decreases the weight and drag of the wetsuit, leading to less fatigue for the wearer compared to standard Smooth Skin or surf wetsuits.

In lab tests, the coefficient of dynamic friction (CDF) for SCS coated Smooth Skin was 0.032, compared to 4.0 for Smooth Skin without a coating.

Description

The Vanquish-X takes performance to a completely new level. Highly regarded as one of the best triathlon wetsuits in the world, the key selling features of the Vanquish have not changed. However, the 2022 version includes revolutionary Bio-Rubber materials on the thighs to improve blood flow and an Alpha Titanium lining on the upper body to improve warmth and circulation.

This wetsuit is designed for triathletes looking to get the most out of their performance and feeling fresh before getting on the bike.

How To Measure

An ill-fitting wetsuit can cause discomfort and reduce the effectiveness of the suit. This guide will provide some tips and tricks on how to get the perfect fit for your wetsuit, so you can enjoy your time in the water to the fullest.

Getting the right size wetsuit is important as a suit that is too loose will let too much water into it and a suit that is too tight will make for an uncomfortable swim.  We normally say if the suit feels tight on dry land, but you can move your arms comfortably then it’s a good overall fit.

Where body measurements can put you into a number of different sizes we use the weight as the deciding factor and although the height is significant, it is secondary to the weight.

More info on how our suits compare in fit can be found here

When putting on your wetsuit, undo the zip and crease the suit in half so you can step into the legs of the suit. Pull the suit on using the inside, fabric-side, of the suit to avoid damaging the outside smooth neoprene with your fingernails.  Try instead to use the pads of your fingers. Also avoid rushing to put on as this will get you hot and the suit will be harder to get in to.

The seam on leg of the suit should run of the inside of the leg. The longer end of the leg holes should be aligned to the front and the shorter sides to the back. Be sure you move the neoprene in the legs up towards your crotch. Pull the neoprene in the arms of the suit towards your shoulders. Make sure not to use your fingernails at any point.

Hold the base of the zipper with one hand while using the pull cord to do the zipper up. Be sure the inner zipper panel sits flat underneath the zipper. If possible have someone help you do the zipper up. It is important to push your shoulder blades together so it is easier to pull the zip up.

The suit should fit snugly but not uncomfortably. If the collar feels too tight, be sure the suit is high enough in the hips and have someone help pull the back of the suit up through the zipper towards your shoulders.

When removing the suit undo the zipper before undoing the collar. Make sure you are holding the shoulder or body of the suit when you remove it.

You can follow these simple guidelines to ensure that your wetsuit stays in the optimum condition:

  • Rinse well in fresh water after every use. 
  • Minimise time left in direct sunlight and aim to dry in the shade. 
  • Dry inside out first and then dry outside. 
  • Best kept flat and folded behind the knees and then in half, best stored in a cool place. 
  • Only use a hanger for short periods of time and use as wide a hanger as possible. 
  • Do not allow others to use your wetsuit. It has been fitted for your body shape and no body larger. 
  • Avoid contacting the velcro with the inside lining of the wetsuit as this pull on the sensitive fibres. Keep the velcro covered with the fabric patch. 
  • Ensure you do not damage the wetsuit material with fingernails. 
  • Avoid use in chlorinated swimming pools. 
  • Always use a plastic bag to help put the legs and arms on. The smooth surface of the plastic makes the suit go on easier. This results in less adjustments needed and less contact with the material to achieve the correct position. 
  • The Zone3 triathlon wetsuit range has been designed to optimise performance during racing. Its use should be restricted to swimming or triathlon racing. 
  • Don't put it in the washing machine or tumble dryer. 
  • Don't iron. 
  • Don't wash with detergent or bleach.
