Athlex Flex Women Triathlon Wetsuit
The new Athlex Flex triathlon wetsuit offers a combination of high elasticity and neutral buoyancy, for swimmers who are able to maintain a good position in the water without added buoyancy. The thin material in the upper body and medium-weight material in the legs result in a wetsuit that provides maximum freedom of movement.
With the Athlex Flex, you can swim without restriction and with total freedom of movement in your next triathlon. Thanks to the materials in the shoulder, arm, and back areas, the wetsuit has a high level of elasticity in the upper body.
If you've mastered your swimming technique and have experience in open water, the neutral buoyancy of this wetsuit will allow you maintain your natural body position in the water so that you can give each stroke your all.
The materials used in this wetsuit have been treated with SCS technology which improves hydrodynamics. This helps increase your speed in the water so you can perform to your full potential in the swimming segment of your next triathlon race.
Neoprene can be damaged by excess salt or other chemicals such as chlorine if used in swimming pools. We recommend washing your wetsuit with plenty of water after use. A small amount of neutral pH soap can be used and then rinsed out afterwards.
Once clean, be sure to prevent it from holding on to too much moisture. Air dry it outside or in a ventilated indoor space, somewhere without direct exposure to sunlight as this can damage its materials.
Storing your wetsuit properly keeps the materials and seams from creasing and being strained for long periods of time. It also prevents the material from wrinkling, which can affect both the wetsuit's durability and appearance.
The best way to store a wetsuit is to hang it draped from its waist, so that the most delicate areas such as the shoulders and arms do not have any tension on them.
For wetsuits with very flexible shoulders, (Apex Flex or Apex Flow) it is important not to place them on a hanger from the shoulder area, as this will degrade the elasticity over time. For the rest of the models, a wide hanger can be used, as long as the wetsuit is not strained in the shoulder or neck area.
SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
1) Avoid contact between the velcro and the lining of your wetsuit as this will affect the material’s sensitive fibers. Keep the velcro covered with the provided fabric patch or make sure the velcro is fastened, so that the rough part of the velcro won’t damage the inside of the wetsuit.
2) Be careful not to damage the neoprene material with your fingernails while putting on or taking off your wetsuit, as this type of damage is not covered by our warranty policy.
3) Triathlon and open water wetsuits have been designed specifically for surface swimming. We can't guarantee correct performance of the wetsuits for other activities. Any damage to the wetsuit resulting from activities other than surface swimming is not covered by our warranty policy.
4) Avoid scraping your wetsuit against any surface (especially rough surfaces), never lean on any surface with your wetsuit on.
