Highlight On: RS1 Swimskin for a fast non-wetsuit swim
Summer is finally here and the water is heating up - so chances are your next triathlon could be a non-wetsuit swim! Don't get caught out without a swimskin and lose precious seconds to your fellow competitors after all that training! Decrease drag and give yourself the best advantage in the water by wearing the Swimskin worn by 5 out of the last 8 Ironman World Champs in Kona.
The Orca RS1 Swimskin is perfect for non-wetsuit swims over any distance where zero water absorbency, and so increased buoyancy and speed counts. How does it do this?
Our technologically advanced HydroSkin Dry water repellent coating has a zero rate of water absorbency over 3 hours - meaning natural buoyancy is retained due to the prevention of water entering the fabric. This results in the most hydrodynamic surface in the water - which means your swim speed is increased. And you have the bonus of exiting the water feeling dry as you head to T1!
