A good wetsuit is a staple to any triathlon, and there’s no going wrong with this top-dollar one from TYR. There are a few reasons it comes with a 4-digit price tag, one of them being its Yamamoto Nano SCS coating neoprene panels throughout the legs, chest and core. This technology helps provide buoyancy, raising the swimmer in the water to cut down on drag and help you maintain perfect form. Another drool-worthy feature? Top-of-the-line, lightning-fast release ankle and wrist cuffs for the kind of easy transitions that lead to personal record times.
