Swim Clothing

Morning all,

Currently training hard for my first tri, but could do with some advice on swim clothing.

The article on tri suits in this month's 220 mag is good, but are these intented to be worn in lieu of a wetsuit & for the cycle & run, or underneath a wetsuit?

1st race will be London so fingers crossed won't be too cold!

Hope you can help.

    Trisuit goes under the wetsuit. So that you just peel the wetsuit off after the swim and then you set to cycle. The trisuit is water wicking(if I spelt it right?) so the suit dries quick. There is also a bum pad built in for some comfort. Then its just off the bike change shoes and you are ready to run.

    Trisuit saves a lot of time and means there is no messing about getting changed.

    Hi jordyal

    My understanding is that the trisuit is to be worn throughout the race, if your swimming in a pool then not wetsuit required, but if its an open water swim then a wetsuit over the top of the trisuit.

    Hope this helps
