Introducing: The Swimrun Core Wetsuit
You asked us for it, now here it is! Introducing our latest addition to the Orca Swimrun range of wetsuits: the Swimrun Core Wetsuit.
Joining our super popular Swimrun RS1 wetsuit, the Swimrun Core wetsuit is the perfect entry-level price point option for those getting into this unique sport, and also offers a number of differences from our RS1 version released in 2015.
Swimrun is a unique race format in that teams of two must race across land, sea and lakes alternating swimming and running whllst carrying everything they need to complete the race with them! With no gear changes allowed, and a wetsuit often being mandatory, this race poses a unique wetsuit challenge - to provide something that is flexible,breathable and durable enough to run in, but at the same time remaining buoyant and flexible for the swim as well.
Here are the key features of the Swimrun Core wetsuit that make it perfect for this fast-growing sport:
Fully separate 2mm high vis neoprene removable arms make this suit extrememly versatile - arms can be removed to cool down in the run.
And then added back on for extra warmth and buoyancy for the swim. An extended front zip makes the suit easy to get on and off and provides for extra ventilation on the run if required. A handy whistle on the zip cord makes it easy to attract attention if you should need to during the race.
Handy outer side pockets on the upper thighs of the wetsuit provide ample storage for race accessories or your suit's arms when they are not in use.
A flexy crotch/inner thigh panel provides extra freedom of movement for the run so there is no rubbing together of bulky neoprene, without compromising on buoyancy required for the swim. While the anti-abrasion Duraskin butt panel protects the suit if you should find yourself slipping and sliding during the race.
This attractive and useful swimrun wetsuit comes all wrapped up with a very attractive price - making this suit accessible to all Swimrunners who're looking for an affordable option for their next race.
