WETSUIT FITTING SERVICE
Expert Triathlon and Open Water Swimming Wetsuit Fitting
Having fitted countless customers in wetsuits and being active triathletes ourselves, we have learnt a few things over the years and have a fair idea of what makes the perfect wetsuit fit. Probably being the second most expensive purchase after a bike, most triathletes spend a fair amount of time shopping around for their wetsuit. And no doubt, online you are most likely to find the best deal. However, getting the perfect size and fit is crucial; and (especially for a beginner triathlete) getting into a wetsuit is an art form in itself.
It is important to remember that wetsuit sizing is not uniform. Referring to the manufacturers’ sizing guidelines is just a starting point. Wetsuits need to fit tight (as a matter of fact, very tight) to help you get maximum buoyancy and speed. Ill-fitted and it will slow you down as lose pockets fill with water, drag you down and ultimately sap your energy before you even get on the bike.
