What we like about the BlueSeventy Reaction:
It’s packed with design features that actually work to squeeze every last drop of help it can out of your stroke. It’s super flexible, very forgiving in terms of fit, it’s warm and we think it’s worth every penny.
Very flexible upper body for unrestricted reach
The Reaction is so unrestrictive you’ll be hard-pressed to feel you are wearing anything around your upper body. The finest Japanese neoprene delivers super flexibility. In addition, the orange ultra-stretch jersey backing around the torso plus the 2mm central panel and the oversized high stretch arm gussets allow unrestricted reach in the water.
Arms are 1.5mm premium neoprene, simply the best. All this freedom equals better propulsion through your arms.
Great fit and less chest restriction
The Reaction has a 2mm central split chest panel ( called VO2 panel) to allow greater chest expansion and unimpeded breathing. This coupled with the thin 2mm side panels that begin at the arm gussets and end at the knee ensures a close, flexible fit around the torso.
Great position in the water
The Reaction tiers buoyancy 4-5-4 by centralizing core buoyancy to raise the position of the hips in relation to the rest of the swimmer. Two chest panels of 4mm accentuate natural lung buoyancy to optimize upper body position relative to the legs.
5mm neoprene supports the hips and lower torso, lifting the body in the water, reducing drag and improving speed. 5mm panels in the back of the hips are laterally orientated in order to facilitate a raised body position when you roll to the side during breathing.
Less drag and more warmth
The slippery SCS coating, along with great body position reduces drag. The reaction is designed to fit close like a second skin this helps keep the water out (as too much water can cause drag) and keeps you a lot warmer.
In addition, the 4-way stretch fabric in the silicone cuffs (Aquaseal) also helps by sealing the wrists from water entry.
The curved closure flap reduces rear collar height improving comfort and reducing chafing.
Get out of your suit quicker.
If using the suit for triathlons, you’ll appreciate the lower leg panel which is only 2mm thick to promote a quick escape from your suit. The internal seam here is also taped so you can trim the leg to desired height if you like.
More ‘feel’ for the water
The thinner textured forearm (called S-grip) provides an extra feel for the water and more grip in the propulsion phase of the stroke to help move you through the water more efficiently.
No more bunched up Knees
2mm panels behind the knees assist with knee flexion by reducing bunching and improve functionality when running, useful in triathlon.
The BlueSeventy Reaction is, in our opinion, one of the best wetsuits for open water swimming available if you want a natural feeling suit with amazing flexibility, to be warm and comfortable then, without doubt, this is the BlueSeventy Reaction is for you.
