Fast changing, front zip shorty swimming wetsuit makes getting in and out of your wetsuit a doddle.
The Duel uses panels of varying thicknesses to combine the flexibility and insulation you need. We’ve used 2mm neoprene in the upper body and 3 mm around your legs and bum to provide the right amount of buoyancy for an efficient swimming position whether swimming breast stroke or crawl.
Nylon-faced neoprene on the arms, inner legs and glutes reduces wear and tear in high friction areas, and is more durable for sliding in and out of the water. We’ve used smooth Glideskin neoprene on the chest and back which reduces drag in the water.
Where most wetsuits would feel restrictive on land, the Duel has panels of thinner neoprene around the hips for better freedom of movement for SwimRun. The long front zip makes it easier to pull on, offers better ventilation, and means you can peel it down when you overheat – or for when nature calls!

When you are pulling on your suit take care not to use your finger nails. Check your suit for fit and range of motion. Your suit will feel different when wet. The neoprene collar and cuffs can be trimmed with scissors if they extend too far. Rinse your suit out with fresh water after each use. Hang the wetsuit inside out and allow to dry away from direct sunlight or heat source. Store your suit in a cool room on a wide plastic coat hanger. Roll your suit when transporting rather than fold. Don’t use petroleum products with your suit as this will damage the neoprene. Small tears can be repaired with neoprene cement/glue.
