It's official, the blueseventy Fusion is faster than other brand suits that cost 3 times as much.
The 2013 wetsuit performance test from US Triathlete Magazine has thrown up some surprising data for triathletes. Using DPS (distance per stroke) as the measurement, 8 wetsuits were tested versus swimming without a suit to find out which ones were fastest.
The blueseventy Fusion produced a 16 - 18% increase in distance, which beat top end suits like the Orca Predator and Xterra Vendetta. The fit of a wetsuit is still a key factor in how fast you will swim, but it's great to see some solid data to show the benefit you get from wearing the right wetsuit.
