Innovative, buoyant and flexible, the Albacore II Wetsuit from HUUB delivers enhanced performance by allowing for maximum stroke efficiency and increased buoyancy so you can move quickly through the water.
Inspired by the 'The Albacore' project completed by US researchers in 1949 to create the fastest, most agile and hydrodynamic submarine in the world, the Albacore II Wetsuit is the result of HUUB's own research team to develop the fastest wetsuit so you can efficiently cut through the water and overtake the competition.
Led by Professor Huub Toussain and a team of researchers and designers, this wetsuit has been refined to be the quickest wetsuit at the time of release. Updating the original Albacore wetsuit to deliver an impressive 'no-suit' feel thanks to the super-flexible underarm panel and Kinetic Release™ technology so you never feel restricted and can make the most of every stroke. Recreating the success and upper body feel of the HUUB Agilis wetsuit, which was designed with the help of Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, while 3:5 Graduated Buoyancy™ and a HUUB exclusive X-0 Skeleton™ gives optimal positioning in the water and addresses the issue of 'sinky legs'.
Finished with a flexible low neckline to improve the fit, while a breakaway zipper and HUUB exclusive Calf Release™ technology ensure a fast transition.
Our aim is to create better products combining research, science and reality. Team Huub has 4 decades worth of experience gained in the field of endurance sports (yes, we've done the miles, but still have the passion!). Focussing wholly on the athlete and maximising performance and comfort, we'll explore both the odd and the conventional to create the best. We are not slaves to fashion, but to form, fit and performance. We believe quite simply that we have delivered what competitors want. What's more, we know our suits work, because the science says so. The Huub team understand the specialist technical and scientific fields associated with triathlon, including hydrodynamics and swim stroke analysis. From smart scientist Huub Toussaint, clever Swim Smooth guys Adam Young and Paul Newsome to pragmatist Dean Jackson, we are focused on bringing cutting edge innovation to our products, whilst retaining a sense of reality and accessibility
