Review: ZeroD oSUIT tri-suit
A techy marvel for the cream of tri, but not aimed at the completers
Like cheese at breakfast and short working weeks, some things sadly haven’t made the journey across the Channel. Another one to add to that list is sizing, with the ultra-lightweight oSUIT from Montpelier’s ZeroD leaving our Barry White baritone more akin to that of Kate Bush.
Once we were able to breathe again, what became unavoidable is that this is a suit that screams speed. The back zip and lack of pockets are primed for non-wetsuit swims. The hydrophobic Water Wear Weapon fabric magnificently repels water, while the pad was lithe and barely noticeable.
If there was a category of Best for ITU Racers this would win hands down, and it’s easy to see why half of the ITU field (including our Brits) are sporting this on race day. For us mid- and back-pack mortals looking for comfort and convenience or going long,we’d suggest looking elsewhere.
