Zone3 Women's Advance Swimming Wetsuit Info
Zone3 Advance Swimming Wetsuit has long been recognised as the undisputed best entry-level swimming wetsuit on the market. Zone3 have made huge steps forward to in the design of the Advance wetsuit which now features the world's highest performing Yamamoto foam neoprene giving improvements in the look, feel and overall performance of the wetsuit.
The Advance is a great swimming wetsuit for beginners starting their open water swimming adventures, for intermediate and leisure swimmers. All the key ingredients are there in the Advance wetsuit to help ensure you have a comfortable, enjoyable swim and, through hydrodynamics and improved body positioning, speed should be there if you need it.
The Advance wetsuit has received much acclaim in the triathlon world with 220 Triathlon Magazine awarding 95% and its coveted 'Best in Test' award, commenting that the Advance "wouldn't feel out of place against many of the mid-range products available at twice the price" and that it was "a brilliant all-rounder that comes at a great price".
The Advance wetsuit is designed to help provide thermal protection while focussing on helping you achieve efficiency with every stroke. The new highly flexible Yamamoto neoprene arm/shoulder panel helps even further allowing for greater flexibility and reach.
Benefits of a wetsuit featuring Yamamoto material:
- Speed: The aqua dynamic 'SCS' Nano coating applied to the neoprene creates almost zero drag through the water. A drag coefficient of just 0.021 compared with 4.0 for regular neoprene wetsuits. The SCS coating also prevents the suit from absorbing water, therefore avoiding excess weight in the wetsuit.
- Flexibility: A massive 480-580% in elongation, compared with human skin (underarm) which is just 60-70%. Superior flexibility and comfort with an expansion of 7x conventional wetsuit materials.
- Warmth: High heat retention: Keeping the body warmer in colder waters to help reduce body fatigue and improve performance.
- Eco: The neoprene is also derived from limestone opposed to petroleum which is more environmentally friendly.
Above all, for us, the Zone3 Women's Advance Swimming wetsuit has proven to be a superb well fitting female specific wetsuit, great design and functional open water swimming wetsuit - we can't say the best in test because we haven't tested it for ourselves but the true test for us has been proven by how popular the Advance wetsuit is and how well it sells.
