The Petrel Swim Wetsuit

A Swim or triathlon suit gives you the flexibility to swim with ease. There are multiple benefits to using a swim wetsuit.
Buoyancy is a big factor as it reduces drag in the water, meaning you use less of your energy to keep afloat. That could shave off previous seconds from your time and also gives swimmers more confidence in open water.
Warmth. Being very cold in the water will not only stop you being able to exert yourself fully but it could even be dangerous.
Speed. Yep, a wetsuit will speed you up! It’ll ease your breathing and make it easier to keep your hips and legs afloat. Research has proved that a wetsuit can save 80 seconds for every 1,500m for experienced triathlete
Crafted from Y39 (Yamamoto 39 Cell Neoprene Rubber), this brings exceptional buoyancy and lift to the legs while a subtle Hydrodynamic Silicone Coating helps you effortlessly glide through the water. Packed with performance features to keep you swimming, the glue and blind-stitched design aid in preventing water from entering the wetsuit, and Gul’s exclusive Revo Fit Technology helps with body alignment for a more streamlined feel through the water.
