We love being in a wetsuit, but there are times when you can’t wear one, especially with the latest heatwaves we’ve been experiencing. Some triathlons feature a non-wetsuit swim, meaning you can’t wear a wetsuit as the water is too warm. Outside of competing, sometimes it’s just too hot to be wearing a wetsuit, but you might still want something that enhances your performance in the water or provides you with an extra layer.
You can wear a kneeskin in pools where wetsuits aren’t allowed, or in unheated pools and open water when you may want some extra buoyancy and warmth but without the need for a full coverage wetsuit.
Buoyancy shorts are for when you’re looking for that wetsuit-feeling of support when you’re not able to wear a wetsuit (e.g. in a pool), perfect for swimmers of all levels and abilities.
Available as a vest or a long-sleeve top, both options have many of the revolutionary performance features available in our wetsuits, such as flatlock stitching and high-stretch neoprene for optimum comfort and fit.
