Product Description

Huub Amphibia Wetsuit

You may or may not have heard of the Swedish Otillo Race in the Stockholm Archipelago. This is the mother of the new sport called SwimRun and as an innovative brand with a strong presence, Huub saw it as its obligation to develop a new type of wetsuit, that would cater for the specific requirements in this style of racing.

In SwimRun races, athletes frequently alternate between swimming and running, and the wetsuit generally stays on throughout the entire race. There is no time for changing equipment. The wetsuit subsequently must not only be great for swimming but also adequate enough for running.

At Huub they attacked this challenge by using their flagship which is the flexible Archimedes 3:5 wetsuit as a starting point, and have made several alterations in order to also make it suited for running. Huub has added a front zipper, 3 inside compartments, extra flexibility for the hip flexors, and more hard wearing material on the inside of the quads and on the glutes.

The front zipper (in addition to the rear zipper) allows you to zip down easily during the run sections and enjoy more ventilation and more space for breathing. This was a smart move for Huub as wetsuits are tight to the skin to allow you to glide through the water but don't have enough flexibility to allow you to breathe heavily whilst running, this front zipper puts an end to this problem. Additionally, two inside velcro compartments offers convenient storage space for gels etc, which are accessible when zipped down, and one large inside compartment at the lower back for a GPS and first aid equipment, or even a fluid bladder if you wish to have one.

An extremely flexible neoprene panel on the top front of the quads allows the hip flexors to move freely when running, preventing any restriction and distractions. hard wearing nylon material is added on the inside of the quads to prevent friction damage of the neoprene, and on the glutes preventing wear and tear from sliding down rocks into the water. Lastly, the outstanding Huub X-O Skeleton with NRB Composite delivers optimal buoyancy and improves body alignment in the water. this becomes even more important in SwimRun racing where athletes usually keep their shoes on whilst swimming.
