Product Description

Huub Archimedes II 4.4 Wetsuit


This suit quite simply delivers the buoyancy and flexibility that you would expect along with a host of benefits created by the experts in scientific and practical swimming development.


Flexibility

Through observing how Chloroprene foam moves, stretches and behaves with differing lining materials, Huub have been able to further enhance the flexibility and reach. The Archimedes has a 25% reduction in the neoprene thickness of the panels around the side, the back, and shoulders, utilising 1mm Chloroprene foam and the most flexible lining materials available. The underarm gusset has been remodelled with improved 'mechanical reach' with a detailed analysis of the stitch location. The super flexible material in the lateral panels with thickness reduction allows 'Non-suit' feel and reach. The improved design and application of new materials deliver an arm-reach modulus reduction of 18%, in other words, less effort for more stretch.

Improved Efficiency

The X-O skeleton is a unique proposition from HUUB, researched using 'active drag' the only company testing and using the most effective and accurate measurement. Measurement of Active Drag (M.A.D) shows what happens when the athlete is swimming, not being towed or pulled - where inaccuracies are rife. Huub uses a cross section of measurement, but the M.A.D. is the most accurate and most reliable. The X-O Skeleton delivers structure and control to reduce snaking, power loss, and directional waste by gripping and holding the pelvis and hips. The X-O Skeleton has been increased by 80% in the Archimedes II to deliver more control.

Calf and Bicep Release

The calf release has been increased in volume by 25%, giving the calf more coverage of the lower modulus with non-restrictive super thin nylon. The thickness was reduced to below 1mm to ensure natural calf movement; this improves kick by lack of restriction and significantly reduces the risk of cramping during swim and transition.

The bicep release has an improved modulus to further enhance the panels ability to create a naturally flexed recovery arm and efficient arm flex for the catch.

Low Neck Line

Comfort has been provided with a low neckline. A stylish black design with distinctive Huub graphics and detailing sets this suit apart from the competition and is sure to look fantastic as you slice through the water.

Non Suit Feel

Huub are proud of their 'non-suit' feel. This allows the athlete to swim and move with the speed of a wetsuit without the restrictive feel often experienced when wearing one.
