The Blue Seventy Helix gets the thumbs up from swim coach Claire Wilson
I wore this wetsuit for the first time in a triathlon swim on a very wild and windy day and I must say – it is amazing!
It feels very fast and despite the very choppy conditions, the stroke length and freedom of movement it gave me was excellent.
The thin, flexible shoulders along with the fabric arm panels mean you can hardly tell you’re wearing it, you get a great feel for the water, something which is often missing in other suits.
The reverse zip takes a little practice to fasten but worth it as it means less bulky fabric at the back of the neck so no chafing (and it can’t be pulled down by sneaky opponents!) plus it’s very easy to undo and get out of in transition.
Overall, the best suit I’ve worn and well worth the money if you’re looking to upgrade.
