HUUB Archimedes II is HUUB's fastest suit that gives you the feeling of not wearing a suit.
|Wetsuit Type:||Full Sleeve|
HUUB have kept one goal in mind whilst developing Archimedes II they have
“To deliver the fastest wetsuit, with the feeling of not wearing a wetsuit"
The Archimedes, for HUUB, was the best suit they could have designed at the time. Materials, production methods and research saw HUUB create the best of the moment... so what has brought about the change to the Archimedes 2? Research, challenging production and learning, from pushing the bar of expectation beyond anything the wetsuit market has ever seen.
Then there’s the HUUB Lab, ‘The real lab’, helping HUUB to look deeper into modulus of materials and methods of construction, the lab that helped ensure HUUB were maximising the properties of neoprene foam and the lining whilst taking that into account in the construction. The lab that has taught HUUB more about stabilisation for a strong foundation, for the swim stroke and the lab that has taught them about muscle release and ‘Non-suit’ reaches and feel. The design of the Archimedes 2 was a process of focus. An intense focus on a few key areas that, by working with our factories and research team, HUUB knew they could accomplish. It revolved around flexibility and creating the ‘non-suit’ feel, which then led to improved efficiency.
Modern triathlon wetsuits were invented by Dan Empfield in 1987 and are customized to the needs of triathletes, they generally incorporate the following key features which differentiates them from a normal wetsuit. 1, Thinner and/or more pliable rubber near the shoulders. 2, Long zippers to facilitate quick removal during transition. In addition, tri wetsuits have a very smooth, but often fragile, surface. This slick surface helps to reduce water friction and allows a faster swim. Another advantage of a tri wetsuit is the added buoyancy that the wetsuit provides, this can provide triathletes with a considerable speed and energy saving advantage over swimming without a suit.
Our aim is to create better products combining research, science and reality. Team Huub has 4 decades worth of experience gained in the field of endurance sports (yes, we've done the miles, but still have the passion!). Focussing wholly on the athlete and maximising performance and comfort, we'll explore both the odd and the conventional to create the best. We are not slaves to fashion, but to form, fit and performance. We believe quite simply that we have delivered what competitors want. What's more, we know our suits work, because the science says so. The Huub team understand the specialist technical and scientific fields associated with triathlon, including hydrodynamics and swim stroke analysis. From smart scientist Huub Toussaint, clever Swim Smooth guys Adam Young and Paul Newsome to pragmatist Dean Jackson, we are focused on bringing cutting edge innovation to our products, whilst retaining a sense of reality and accessibility
