TYR Hurricane Freak of Nature

"TYR believe in the power of technology to enable triathletes to achieve their full potential. In their history of technological firsts, the Hurricane Freak of Nature Wetsuit is TYR's most advanced accomplishment.

The Hurricane Freak of Nature is a wetsuit conceived and engineered free of restraints and presumptions. They've thrown away everything that has limited the wetsuit in the past, focused on the outer reaches of what might be possible and then went a little further. The Freak of Nature wetsuit has been tested and refined repeatedly until TYR knew they had something incredible!

The Hurricane Freak of Nature will allow you to see just how much your training and your will can accomplish in the water. Welcome to a new possibility of peak performance!"

- That's the write-up from the TYR website. The first thing you may think when you see the price of the TYR Freak of Nature wetsuit is, £849.99 for a wetsuit!? Really?

The huge price tag of the TYR Hurricane Freak of Nature wetsuit is surprising, to say the least. It's priced significantly higher than any other wetsuit on the market which suggests it's got more to give, right? TYR Sports Inc have been in the triathlon game since 1985. Hailing from Huntingdon Beach, California. For the last 30+ years, they've been leading the triathlon industry with innovative new ideas and products.

The Hurricane Freak of Nature is their flagship wetsuit, the suit is comprised entirely of Yamamoto Smoothskin #40 neoprene. Yamamoto #40 is the most flexible neoprene out there. The extra flexibility results in a few unique advantages:

Easier to put on / remove – for faster T1 times.

Fits more body types.

More flexible in the water - resulting in more freedom of movement for your swim stroke.

Wetsuit flexibility is not the entire story of performance. Extra flexibility doesn't always equate to extra speed. The wetsuit has many technologically advanced features to help the swimmer conserve energy, and cut through the water with ease!

The buoyancy of the suit is designed in such as way as to position your body in the water for optimal hydrodynamics. The wetsuit helps to float the swimmer's legs and hips higher in the water and also helps with body roll/rotation.

Panels on the arms help to catch more water and provide a larger surface area, generating more forward propulsion.

Textured panels within the suit concentrate buoyancy and influence hydrodynamics, they also help to facilitate body roll.

For those that are willing to take the plunge and invest in this wetsuit, you will be getting an extremely well made and robust expert level triathlon wetsuit. The attention to detail, technological features, fit and look of the wetsuit all add up to something very special.
