Get yourself triathlon ready with the right swimwear
When you are looking for swimwear for triathlon training or triathlon racing, it is vital to choose swimwear that is both comfortable and offers as little resistance as possible in the water when you are swimming, so that you can feel confident and don’t lose any precious seconds from your end time. Depending on the personal preference and conditions, some athletes prefer to wear swimsuits, while others prefer to invest in a wetsuit – which are available in a number of different styles and models.
When choosing a wetsuit, it is paramount that you choose something that you feel comfortable in. The wrong size can ultimately be a hindrance and mean that the wetsuit will not work properly when you are in the water. It should fit like a second skin with a snug fit around the arms and leg holes to prevent water seeping in, but without feeling too tight. There should be no folds or excess material, which can result in heaviness and resistance in the water.
Wetsuits are made from neoprene, which enables natural buoyancy in the water. The higher you float in the water, the easier and faster you will swim. However, the thicker the material, the less flexibility you will have in the water when swimming. It is therefore important to find the right balance. Making sure that your wetsuit is thinner around the arm and shoulder area can add better flexibility at the joints, while the chest or leg areas are an ideal place to have thicker neoprene. Wetsuits usually come as full sleeve or sleeveless models with the full sleeve style providing the maximum buoyancy and protection needed in colder swims, while sleeveless suits are more suited to warmer conditions and offer ease of arm movement and a faster transition out of the suit.
