Huub DS Long-Course tri-suit review
With six-time Kona champ Dave Scott involved in the design, could this be the ultimate suit for going long? We take a look...
Huub’s snappily-titled DS Long-Course Triathlon Suit’s credentials come high, with six-time Ironman Hawaii champ Dave Scott having a hand in the design process.
Straight-off-the-bat, we love the move to sleeved tri-suits; away from the aero and UV benefits, they look and feel great.

If Huub didn’t start the trend, they’ve taken it to the next level with the Long-Course, with the strategically-placed mesh panels and ultra-light fabric proving hugely effective in managing airflow and temp regulation.
Elsewhere, the elasticated hems were effective and the pad was ample enough for extended rides. Our only problem is the see-through nature, which revealed too much of our bodily hair to our long-suffering family.
Verdict: A high price, but plenty of quality, craftsmanship and race day benefits, 92%
