The third incarnation of the outstanding Archimedes wetsuit from HUUB, the suit that redefined buoyancy to suit how triathletes swim. With new 360 bicep and tricep release, welcome to comfort, welcome to better arm positioning and welcome to less tension.
The most significant technological advancement in wetsuit materials for over 80 years. After tests after tests and questing the norm HUUB have created a material that is lighter and more buoyant. The result? A ground-breaking 43% more buoyant (than standard neoprene foam). Worth waiting 80 years!
Neoprene will always have its place, the Japanese Yamamoto materials HUUB use are perfect for stretch and reach zones. Coupled with HUUB’s design, testing, knowledge and process there really is no substitute, but buoyancy proposes a separate set of needs.
Buoyancy in swimming wetsuits – first came neoprene, then NBR and now there is +43, HUUB say that they cannot wait for you to try it and they’re proud of what they’ve created because “its no longer just about neoprene”.
Graduated buoyancy profiles around the hips, thighs and lower quads ensures a more streamlined profile in the water, a faster suit and more buoyancy.
Bicep release 360
The original Bicep release assisted correct arm positioning and bicep expansion to allow a natural bent arm state for recovery and catch. Huub have now taken this one step further by also applying this technology to the triceps.
With the use of materials (a more relaxed fabric covering) in both the tricep and bicep areas, it offers benefits for arm positioning through stress of catch & pull and enhances the recovery phase by allowing a more relaxed arm position with high elbow and less swing. With less tension, less fatigue, more comfort and more efficient stroke alignment the Bicep Release just went 360.
M.A.D System Measurement of Active Drag
M.A.D in a nutshell is how much drag am I creating in differing wetsuits, swimskins etc.? Developed in partnership with Innovate-UK the most advanced M.A.D system resides at HUUB’s testing facility partnership in Mallorca with BEST swim centre. How can you make claims without thorough testing, so that is what HUUB do they test what works and what doesn’t.
The in-house development team tasked with one simple brief ‘question everything’.
"It’s what you don't see that makes YOU faster"
Low Neck Line
HUUB know they have the most comfortable neck in the wetsuit industry. They don’t fold and stitch, HUUB refuse to create a tourniquet of rubber to restrict breathing and flexibility HUUB stood alone and will stand by this simple and effective design.
3mm Upper Body Materials And 5mm Lower Body Materials
85% of triathletes come to the sport from a non-swimming background and many suffer from low sinking legs in the water as they swim. Of course the buoyancy of any wetsuit helps bring the legs up higher but never before have wetsuits been designed specifically for these swimmers with a large buoyancy difference between the upper and lower bodies. Until you swim in one of these suits you won’t believe how high your legs can be, they will feel glued to the surface and your potential as a swimmer will be truly unleashed! As HUUB designed these sophisticated high technology suits, they increasingly moved away from neoprene towards new materials with properties of increased buoyancy and specified levels of stretch.
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
