The Vanquish has built the reputation as the fastest and most comfortable wetsuit on the market and is loved around the world by thousands of amateur and professional triathletes. Ironman athlete Tim Don loves the suit for its high levels of comfort and flexibility around the shoulders, and Sprint/Olympic distance athlete Non Stanford praises its speed and mega-buoyancy.
Don’t just take our word for it, the largest triathlon magazine in the US, TriathleteTM, awarded the Vanquish ‘BEST IN CLASS’ award, followed by the ‘Best on Test’ award from the UK based 220 Triathlon in 2017. Triathlon Plus magazine stated the suit was ‘as close to perfection as you can get with a wetsuit and there really is nothing to fault’. With two of the top awards in the world, it’s easy to see why so many athletes have made the switch to the Vanquish to help get their performance to the next level.

- Increased visibility in the water.
The Vanquish is something we are extremely passionate and excited about, we put everything we know and love into the design to make it the fastest wetsuit possible. It makes use of some of the world’s highest performance materials combined with a thoroughly researched panel design for maximum flexibility and balanced buoyancy.
Key Features Include:
1.5mm thick Yamamoto Premium #40 SCS used in the shoulder panel is one of the lightest and highest stretch materials available
Ultra-thin 0.3mm Yamamoto BRS SCS is the world’s thinnest SCS neoprene and reduces the weight and buoyancy of the arms. This allows a quicker stroke recovery after the catch phase and reduces arm fatigue during the swim, perfect for swims of 1.5km or more. NBR is a buoyant material which is commonly used in life jackets. This material is sandwiched between two layers of neoprene to give extra support in the water when the hips start to drop.
Aerodome materials used on the front legs to help support the core leg muscles is designed with air bubbles built between the fabric layers to make it lighter and more buoyant, producing up to 30% more buoyancy than conventional neoprene.
39 cell SCS neoprene used on the glutes.
We work on new developments with Yamamoto as a chosen supplier because the neoprene offers fantastic performance features such as:
Speed: The aqua dynamic 'SCS' Nano coating applied to the neoprene creates almost zero drag through the water. A drag coefficient of just 0.021 compared with 4.0 for regular neoprene wetsuits.
Flexibility: A massive 480-580% in elongation, compared with human skin (underarm) which is just 60-70%. Superior flexibility and comfort with an expansion of 7x conventional wetsuit materials.
Warmth: Keeping the body warm in cold waters helps to reduce body fatigue and improve performance.
Environmentally friendly and buoyant: Derived from limestone rather than oil, the neoprene has a 23% higher closed-cell structure, increasing the buoyancy levels for the swimmer.
