Top Features of the Zone 3 Aspire Wetsuit 2012
This wetsuit is widely considered as one of the best performing suits in terms of buoyancy, flexibility and overall comfort and performance.
- Premium SCS Yamamoto fabrics designed to ensure superb all-over body flexibility, comfort and performance.
- Aqua dynamic Nano coating applied to the neoprene meaning that there is almost no drag through the water.
- Extensive research and development on panel design and fabric thickness ensures this is one of the most natural feeling wetsuits you’ll swim in.
- Spring loaded shoulder design to generate a faster swim stroke and to conserve energy.
- Maximum 5mm neoprene allowed under ITU regulations from the top of the chest down to the knees, giving plenty of buoyancy and core support to stop sinking legs.
- Pro Speed CuffsTM on the arms and the legs for rapid removal after the swim to ensure the quickest transitions, saving you vital time on any course.
- 3D forearm catch panels to increase surface area on the arm pull through the water with each stroke. More propulsion means more speed.
- Downwards YKK zip to enable the suit to go on and off easily.
- Combing our recognized red cuffs with graphite back and arm panels gives the Aspire a distinguished style which looks as good on the rail as it does when being worn.

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.
I can confirm that once in the water the wetsuit will loosen and stretch.
I would recommend keep the received wetsuit as long as it does not restrict breathing and movement.
I have now tried my new Zone 3 Aspire Wetsuit.
I love this suit, but unless I find a solution, I'd have to return the it.
The problem is that I am getting water in from the back side doing freestyle. The suit seems to be in almost perfect fit when I put it on (a bit tight) but somehow water manages to get in from the back of my neck. The water is felt all the way down in my back and when I got out, water was rinsing out of the suit from my feet area:(
I noticed that this could be provoked further by doing flip-turns or by swimming butterfly.
Could the suit be defect around the neck area?!
I also wondered about the size. I have bought a size large.
I am 181cm tall, chest 102 cm, 92 cm waist. I weigh 82 kgs.
When swimming in a pool and doing other strokes and flip turns there is a high chance of more water entering the suit than there would be if swimming outdoors. For example when you do a turn your head will go down and your neck will come away from the suit. This allows a gap where the water will flow into the back.
When you swim outdoors enter the water slowly and this will minimize any water entry. In the future you could also consider the size Medium-Large because this may be more suitable for your weight.
I may be wrong but I always understood wetsuits to trap a layer of water inside. I have recently bought one and it does just that so that when you move, particularly stand up after swimming you can fee l the water trickling downwards. Any energetic swimming causes some water to get inside and swish about and given the design of most wetsuits I don't see how thiscould be avoided. Obviously the closer it fits the better but with an 'off-the-peg suit there will always be gaps.
Best fit . However is it no longer being manufactured
Or you just don't have that in stock ?
At any rate what's your size recommendation
(Zone 3 Aspire 2012)
Thanks in advance
I am 6ft 1, 86-88kg, 41-42 inch chest and 34 waist. Am I best to get a large to match my weight or a medium large to match my waist, height and chest measurements?
