Zone3 Advance Wetsuit taking the entry-level wetsuit to the next level, the Zone3 Advance Wetsuit has been awarded the 'Best in Test' award by the 220 Triathlon Magazine, as a great all-rounder this latest version of the wetsuit uses high-performing YAMAMOTO foam.
•Brand New 1.5mm Yamamoto #39 SCS Free-Flex shoulder panel design provides high levels of flexibility, comfort and efficiency with each stroke.
•16% weight reduction versus the 2020 model whilst still maintaining the same levels of buoyancy and warmth.
•10 different materials used to ensure maximum performance, comfort, and durability whilst still maintaining a low price point.
•No nylon panels or external flatlock stitching to prevent water entry and improve speed and comfort.
•AQUA-X coatings used to minimise drag and increase speed through the water.
•Smoothskin fabric used to prevent water from permeating the suit and weighing it down.
•4mm core support buoyancy panels on the upper legs help to keep the legs towards the surface of the water and therefore significantly reducing drag and fatigue.
•High Visibility panels to help stand out when in the water
•Slimline Pro-Speed cuffs offer superior removal speed.
•Laser-cut collar provides a comfortable ‘soft-close’ fit around the neck.
•Raglan sleeve panel layout offers increased flexibility to allow for greater stroke efficiency.
•Eco-Friendly Neoprene derived from limestone and scrap rubber tires reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions by 200g per suit. The majority of neoprene production waste is recycled back into the suits, helping to minimise landfill waste and help protect the environment we train in.
Benefits of a wetsuit featuring Yamamoto material:
•Speed: The aqua dynamic ‘SCS’ Nano coating applied to the neoprene creates almost zero drag through the water. A drag coefficient of just 0.021 compared with 4.0 for regular neoprene wetsuits. The SCS coating also prevents the suit from absorbing water, therefore avoiding excess weight in the wetsuit.
•Flexibility: A massive 480-580% in elongation, compared with human skin (underarm) which is just 60-70%. Superior flexibility and comfort with an expansion of 7x conventional wetsuit materials.
•Warmth: High heat retention: Keeping the body warmer in colder waters to help reduce body fatigue and improve performance.
•Eco: The neoprene is also derived from limestone as opposed to petroleum which is more environmentally friendly.
Stay warm, swim faster, save energy and spend less money, these are all key characteristics of the Advance Wetsuit.
