Triathlon suits come in a range of colours and designs. There are various styles of tri-suits available two piece, sleeved, non-sleeved, with zips, and no zips tri-suits. So how do you decide what tri-suit is for you?
TN1 triathlon suit is one of Tenola's original designs. The tri-suit was designed with first time triathletes in mind, but we wanted to offer all the performance features of more expensive suits on the market. The suit has been designed with improving performance in the swim, improved cooling, breathability and comfort on the bike, and run.
The TN7 swimsuit was designed from scratch with the aim of providing a 2 discipline tri-suit. A performance enhancing tri-swimsuit in the water, but also suitable to run in.
An alternative to wearing a full wetsuit in the pool or open water is triathlon swim shorts and we recommend the neoprene buoyancy swim shorts by Lomo. These are designed to help elevate your hips as you are swimming so that your body angle is in an optimal swimming position. There are several brands on the market at present, all offering a similar thing. In this article we will be discussing the Lomo brand.
This may seem obvious but how to pick a triathlon wetsuit mainly comes down to one important thing which is its fit. Wetsuits must be well fitted, as tight as possible before feeling restrictive; shoulder rotation is the single most important aspect of body and wetsuit movement. Your budget should not restrict the most important part of buying a wetsuit and that is getting the right fit/size.
You are looking for a good wetsuit for triathlon, why buy a triathlon wetsuit specific for triathlon when you can buy one from a local sailing centre?
