We believe that a properly FIT wetsuit is just as important as a properly fit pair or shoes, bike, or any other essential piece of equipment. Nowadays it's easy to find cheap quality and inexpensive wetsuits for sale online. While the price may be tempting the likelihood of choosing the right size is extremely low, despite sizing guides and scales and the quality of rubber and suit's age are an unknown. Frankly, buying a wetsuit online is a risky proposition that we do not recommend.
We realize that purchasing a wetsuit is an investment, and that's why we've created our wetsuit rental program. This program allows you to rent for up to 5 days to practice in, test out or race in. We even have a built-in purchase option after rental.
How to Rent: All wetsuit rentals are in-store only and are on a first come first served basis (keep that in mind during the busy part of the season). However, we do encourage scheduling rentals ahead of time if you know the date of your race. Please email Krystol if you would like to schedule a wetsuit rental between March and December of 2016. Scheduling your rental helps to ensure you that the suit of your choice in your size will be available for you on the date you request.
The Suit: blueseventy Reaction Fullsuit
"Every aspect of this suit is designed for high performance without sacrificing comfort. Since it’s introduction in 2006 the Reaction has helped more athletes accomplish their goals than any other wetsuit. Premium 39 cell Yamamoto rubber achieves superior buoyancy throughout the entire suit. Proven RST panels paired with oversized high stretch arm gussets allow unrestricted reach in the water, while the finest Japanese sourced neoprene delivers enhanced flexibility and buoyancy. Slippery SCS coating reduces drag. Our low neckline and VO2 chest panel create a suit that optimizes energy and swims as fast as it looks."
