Hitting shelves in early November the top-end Category 5 model gains flotation panels on the abs, chest, obliques and legs for optimal body positioning in the water, along with a full antimicrobial lining.

The Cat 5 has also gained alpha catch panels for maximal catch-and-release stroke, and an insulated, thinner layer underneath to improve “feel” for the water. New graphics, styling and male/female colour ways also make an appearance.

It’s a similar story for the Category 3 model, made from 100% Yamamoto 38 Cell Nano SCS Rubber, with alpha catch panels added along with a full antimicrobial lining. It also gets a fresh look thanks to new graphics, styling and male/female colourways.

The Category 1 wetsuit, aimed at beginner triathletes and made from slick-skin neoprene for minimum drag and maximum speed, remains structurally the same but will be offered for a slightly lower (unconfirmed) price point.

Finally, the all-new Hurricane Category 2 suit is engineered for beginner to intermediate athletes, say Tyr. It’s made from slick-skin neoprene like the Category 1 suit, but also features elevation panels in the chest and abs, alpha catch panels, speed wrap panelling, a partial anti-microbial lining and quick-release ankle and wrist cuffs.

Prices and more details as soon as we have them…
