Modern triathlon wetsuits were invented by Dan Empfield in 1987 and are customized to the needs of triathletes, they generally incorporate the following key features which differentiates them from a normal wetsuit. 1, Thinner and/or more pliable rubber near the shoulders. 2, Long zippers to facilitate quick removal during transition. In addition, tri wetsuits have a very smooth, but often fragile, surface. This slick surface helps to reduce water friction and allows a faster swim. Another advantage of a tri wetsuit is the added buoyancy that the wetsuit provides, this can provide triathletes with a considerable speed and energy saving advantage over swimming without a suit.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
If you have longer legs/shorter torso, I would recommend going for the smaller size (Large).
If you have most of your weight in your torso, move up to the XL.
The wetsuit will give after a few wears and the smaller size will be more of a streamline race fit but remember that in transition, the larger size will come off quicker!
If you do go for the smaller suit, make sure to have the base of the zip above your coccyx (tail bone) before doing up the zipper, so as to make sure there isn't too much strain on the zip. Hope this helps
Height 174 or 5'9"
Weight 176lbs or 12 stone 8lbs
and normally take a 38 - 40 inch chest
Inside leg 31.5"
Would a medium or medium solid be the best fit. Apologies if this is obvious, this will be my first wetsuit and have not had an opportunity to try a 2XU suit locally.
Many thanks in advance.
Height 190 cm, weight 77 kr, chest 97 cm. I am a bit worried about the height for the the Orca TRN size MT, do you think this whould work or do you recommend the Z:1 to get a better (but more expensive) fit for a OW beginner, but experienced indoor swimmer?
I'm doing my first triathlon this summer, which has a 1900m swim. I'm guess I'm an average swimmer to most standards, but I've never competed, and my freestyle leaves a lot to be desired...
I'm 193cm tall, 108kg, and chest is around 116cm. Should I go for XL or XXL on the Z:1?
And would I be better off in the Zone3 Venture suit? (Or another for that matter?)
and my weight is 70kg.
Would a large/tall work for a 178cm tall, 90kg and 116cm chest?
