Review for Blue Seventy Men’s Sprint Sleeveless Wetsuit – 2016
The new Sprint ups the ante of what an entry level wetsuit should be. We studied the competition. We spoke to beginners and seasoned athletes. We moved seam lines, added buoyancy, improved flexibility and added some exciting features not available in the rest of our wetsuit line. The result is a suit that sets the standard for how an athlete’s first wetsuit should fit, perform and feel. Because how you feel out in the open water is everything.BETTER RUBBERBuilding a better suit starts with the rubber. This edition of the Sprint has been upgraded to 100% Yamamoto #38 cell rubber. Yamamoto is a premier manufacturer of neoprene and #38 makes the Sprint an affordable entry that doesn’t sacrifice buoyancy or comfort.SUPER COMPOSITE SKIN (SCS)The new Sprint is SCS coated in the legs to provide a protective barrier against fingernails, wetsuit strippers and other enemies of triathlon wetsuits.SILICONE CUFFSNew for this year is the addition of silicone leg and ankle cuffs on the Sprint. When wet the silicone cuffs provide a super slick surface that allows the suit to literally “pop” off at the ankles.LOWERED COLLAROver twenty years of wetsuit design experience has made our traditional zipper an industry standard. Our curved closure flap reduces rear collar height improving comfort and reducing chafing.BUOYANCYThe new Sprint was built off a modified version of our popular Fusion suit. This design lifts the lower half of the body in the water improving body position creating less drag, more speed while conserving energy.
