Swim brand Blue Seventy has launched its new swim skin, the PZ3, at this year’s Ironman World Championships.
Seen above sported by pro athlete Luke Mckenzie, who’s hoping for a top 10 finish in today’s race, highlights on the PZ3 include a drag coefficient of 0.032, which is over 50 times lower than skin and is said to be more than four times lower than other swim skins on the market. The fit and styling have been developed from Blue Seventy’s Helix wetsuit, and features the double hoop of high stretch materials.
Other claims of the suit include:
SCS slick coating reduces the surface drag coefficent. This results in a massive reduction in the swimmers friction in the water and can reduce swim times by 3-5%.
Anti-chafe zip area around neck.
Fold over soft stitch in shoulder panels to reduce chafing.
Neutral bouyancy means the PointZero3 is legal for all USAT, WTC, and DTU sanctioned events.
Helix technology increases range of motion and enhances your swim stroke.
Leg cut allows full coverage of your tri shorts to minimize drag.
Look out for more in 220 soon.
