HUUB specialise in wetsuit apparel with an impressive four decades of experience behind them they know what the industry needs – and how to deliver. Combining their research skills and scientific knowledge they are constantly creating the best of the best wetsuits and tri-suits for the athlete.
They want to give athletes the best experience possible by providing them with flawless wetsuits and tri-suits that centre around elevating their experience and every moment of their swims. They have expert knowledge that has presented itself in winning athletes sporting their gear in the 2016 Rio Olympics such as Jonathan and Alistair Brownlee, Richard Varga and Henri Schoeman amongst others.
One of their latest creations is the HUUB Anemoi Aero Tri Suit. The design was assisted by a cycling and triathlon champion with expert knowledge, Dan Bingham, who helped shape the suit into its entirely unique design.
The HUUB Tri suit is stretchable. It allows room for the athlete to stretch and reach whilst ensuring the suit stays warm. Especially when facing the forces of nature this is a critical element in the tri-suit!
Speaking of the elements one of the most important aspects is quality retention when facing different forecasts. The Coldblack fabric the suit uses is not only quick drying but is lightweight and resists degradation no matter the weather.
One of the biggest reassurances in wetsuits and tri-suits is being comfortable. Using the Arms Neutral design has ensured not only comfort when swimming but also aero efficiency.
An aero pocket has been added to the rear of the suit. This means that you have space to store any of the essentials that you’ll need to take with you on race day – they’ve got you covered!
The HUUB Anemoi Tri-Suit has been tri-ed to see if it is as good as it seems. During testing that was done at a velocity range of 35kph to 55kph using seven different athletes! These include Alistair Brownlee, David McNamee, Harry Wiltshire and Dan Bingham himself!
Here are the results:
Ironman distance: @ 22mph = 7.5W - 350 seconds (just under 6 minutes)
Ironman distance: @ 18mph = 4W - 414 seconds (just under 7 minutes)
Olympic distance: @ 24mph =9.8W -71seconds
Olympic distance: @ 20mph =5.7W -83seconds
