Blueseventy Helix 2015 wetsuit review

For years Blueseventy’s range-topping Helix has been the number one item on many a triathlete’s wish list.

>>> What to look for in a triathlon wetsuit

It’s probably no different this season as the latest evolution boasts more high-tech features than you can shake a stick at, including ‘Honeycomb Aqua Feel’ catch panels on the forearms and ‘Torsional Stretch Technology’ around the shoulders and back. 

But the main thing with the 2015 Helix is that it still feels incredibly supple and mobile around the shoulders, while maintaining excellent, balanced buoyancy. 

It’s definitely a suit faster swimmers will appreciate. A potential downside is that being so thin in places means it’s pretty delicate, which is hard to ignore when you’re trying to tear yourself out of a suit that costs nearly £500.

Verdict: A super-supple top-end performance suit, albeit a delicate and pricey one, 90%
