At last… Blue Seventy have designed the ultimate, all season wetsuit that we’ve been asking for, the Women’s Thermal Helix.
At Swim the Lakes we are swimmers before anything else and we like to swim all year, not just when the thermometer dictates. We don’t always appreciate the design features that are added to wetsuits purely for the triathletes among us either – we want to be warm, we want zips to be the right way up, but we still want to fly when we swim – and I think we might just have arrived with the Thermal Helix.
Using the “fastest wetsuit in the World” as a worthy template, BlueSeventy have given the Women’s Helix some winter plumage and tweaked the fit and design characteristics along the way to make the Women’s Thermal Helix warm, comfortable and even faster. Lining the suit with their well proven Zirconium jersey material provides the warmth, improves drying time, minimises weight and offers excellent flex characteristics. The Thermal Helix also features top-end YKK zippers which are the right way up (Yey!), which will make like a lot easier for solo swimmers zipping up your own wetsuit.
