Best triathlon wetsuits 2014

Five of this year's best triathlon wetsuits tested, rated and reviewed

We recommend the best triathlon wetsuits we've reviewed in the past 12 months...

It’s that time of year again when we look at some of the best triathlon wetsuits to be bought for the new tri season, all of which offer a great combination of comfort, looks and performance.

As always, fit is the most important thing to look out for when buying a wetsuit, so make sure you try before you buy (and don’t forget your swimming costume!). We start with one of the more affordable offerings from French brand Mako…

Mako X-Perience

Our rating (review here): 85%
Price: £165 from www.mako-sport.fr 

Mako X-Perience

The nicely priced X-Perience wetsuit uses smooth-skin neoprene to keep costs down, but still includes some nice touches such as a soft 1.5mm low-cut neck seal and top-down zipper. Highly recommended.

Speedo Comp

Our rating (review here): 84%
Price: £240 from www.speedo.co.uk

Speedo Comp

The Tri Comp sits right in the middle of Speedo’s 2014 range and is aimed at competitive athletes looking for a good-value suit, but is actually extremely supple and comfortable with great buoyancy in the thighs.

Blueseventy Reaction

Our rating (review here): 86%
Price: £345 from www.blueseventy.co.uk

Blueseventy Reaction

The Reaction nestles just below Blueseventy’s top-of-the-line Helix model, and offers very good flexibility around the arms and shoulders, along with a good level of warmth and buoyancy thanks to 4mm and 5mm sections in the torso and legs.

Huub Aerious

Our rating (review here): 90%
Price: £350 from www.huubdesign.com

Huub Aerious

The Aerious is Huub’s mid-range suit for 2014, and combines highly flexible shoulder panels with two buoyancy options to suit your swim style, and a ‘Breakaway Zipper’ that will help you whizz through transitions.

Zone3 Vanquish

Our rating (review here): 92%
Price: £425 from www.racezone3.com

Zone3 Vanquish

Definitely aimed at the high-performance end of the market, the Vanquish combines multiple panels of varying thickness and different materials to blend optimum flexibility, buoyancy and warmth where they’re needed most.
